Marketfair Spotlight: Kids in Sports

As the kids are heading back to school, it’s important to make sure they stay active. Get your kids up and moving after the classroom with our tenant Kids in Sports! This is the perfect community spot here in Fayetteville to get your kids involved in an activity where they will learn important life skills like sportsmanship and teamwork while having fun.

You don’t have to choose just one sport – Kids in Sports offers multi-sport classes which combine baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, football and floor hockey. These classes are specially designed to be broken into appropriate age groups and use a combination of small and large group activities to teach the needed skills for each sport. There’s no room for boredom at Kids in Sports!

Overall, Kids in Sports seeks to teach its athletes benefits that go beyond the game. In addition to inspiring athletes to live a healthy lifestyle, the classes teach life and socialization skills that improve self-esteem, emotional stability and encourage kids to live with respect for others.

You can register online for Fall Sport Classes at any time! Classes begin Sept. 5, but registration stays open throughout the season so you can join in on the fun at any time. For all of the soccer fans out there, check out the Soccer Challenge Week coming up Sept. 11. Stay updated by following @KISFayetteville on Facebook.

Get Moving this May

Warm weather is here, which means it’s the perfect time to get outside and get moving! There are tons of spots throughout Fayetteville to enjoy the great outdoors and get some exercise in. Below we have listed some favorite local trails and parks for a stroll, jog or picnic this month.

  • Cape Fear River Trail: This paved path reaches about 5.3 miles one way and is perfect for a walk, jog or bicycle ride. Enjoy a look at wildlife along this trail that offers more than 700 species of plants and trees.
  • Bayard Clark Park & Nature Center: This second largest regional park is an ideal spot for an afternoon picnic. There is never a dull moment here as the Nature Center offers fun programs for individuals and families, like nature story time and a bird appreciation walking group.
  • Riverside Dog Park: Take your furry friend out for some exercise at this dog-friendly spot. The location is open every day from dawn to dusk.
  • North Carolina Veterans Park: Explore downtown and take a stroll through the first park dedicated to military veterans in the state. This spot memorializes veterans from over 100 North Carolina counties from all branches of the Armed Services.
