Check out all the amazing activities for kids this spring at Courts Plus and even plan ahead for summer by registering for summer camps! Courts Plus offers spring camps during spring break, March 28-April 1, as well as summer camps from June 6-August 19. Kids will play sports, games, go on field trips and can look forward to swimming in the summer.
This month Courts Plus wants you to test your lower body strength with a 30 day squat challenge! After a month, you'll be feeling the burn, but hopefully be on your way to a fit and healthy body. To complete this monthly challenge, check out our squat challenge sheet below and make sure to set yourself up for successful squatting. Keep your knees behind the toes, slide your hips back as if you were sitting into a chair and keep your chest lifted.
