In a little more than a year, Canada will be heading to Rio for the 2016 Summer Olympics and that legendary Canadian pride is already soaring! As a proud member of the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Tire has come up with some great ideas for ways that you can get your whole family involved in the countdown to the summer games. Try these four tips to help build your excitement and anticipation!
- Pick one summer Olympic sport you have never tried before and play that sport with your kids. Here’s the full list of summer Olympic sports.
- Pick a goal that you want to track, i.e., how many basketball free shots can you take, what is your best trampoline move, how fast can you run 50 metres, etc.
- Work on a specific skill and try to see how with practice you can improve throughout the year. Before next year’s Olympics, get your family to try again to see if they can beat their personal best.
