Getting Active with Kick Darts

I am all for finding new and exciting ways to encourage my boys to get active.  They do swimming at the moment but most other activities have fallen by the wayside so it’s time to try something different to spurn them on all over again!  My two get bored easily and like to try diverse challenges.

In the past we have had karate, rugby, racket sports, football and kayaking.  Some lasted longer than others and it looks like they might actually return to football on their own accord which would be good.  I find they need frequent exercise otherwise they can be a bit too high spirited and start wrestling at home instead.  Boisterous boys need to burn off some energy!!!

I was looking at Kick Darts which combines football and darts!  Given they are slowly getting enthusiastic for football again this would be ideal timing to start.  I think the local football club should actually think about buying one, it would be a good way to coax more children to come to training.  Plus it could be set up for fundraising events as it would definitely capture everyone’s interest.

A little video of the game in action is included below. 

You can see how it uses Velcro football balls to stick to the giant inflatable darts board.  It is a good way to focus training on target practice as you try and get the highest score.  Adults and children alike seemed keen to have a try. 

Depending on the costs of set up I would be quite keen to get one for the boys’ birthday parties; I can imagine lots of children eager to play!  They would love the novelty as it’s something we have never seen before and would be a talking point at school for a long time afterwards.  I am so glad I have stumbled upon the game.
