I cannot believe that soccer season will be starting soon! This summer, the girls have had dance and swimming as their extracurricular activities. With soccer starting in August, summer sports will be in full swing and crescendoing as we transition into the school year.
When I was younger, I didn’t have the opportunity to play sports because my parents were working late nights! I appreciated my parents hard work and dedication to our family. However, I missed out on a lot of team building activities.
Now as a parent, while I still work outside of the home, I do try and ensure that my kids get those opportunities that I never had. You can say that I am living vicariously through them in a way. I love that my kids learn about being part of a team and how the team is what helps the group succeed, not just the individual talent. This lesson transpires not only throughout the sports that they are in, but life in general.
With all of our activities, we do seek sponsorship from brands to help fund many of our activities for our youths. This also teaches our kids how to promote continuing and promoting the activities that they love with others.
In the Midwest, we have Tony’s Pizza that started in Salina, Kansas that has been serving authentic pizzeria style pizza for over 50 years hosting a Facebook sweepstakes campaign around Kansas and Missouri centered around community and pizza – something I can definitely get behind. They are all about fueling youth sports with a slice of pride!
Visit your local Walmart and enter the Tony’s Sweepstakes where they are giving $10,000 to a local youth sports team! Check out Tony’s Facebook Page for more great ideas!
Tony’s Pizzas are layers of light, crispy, crunchy crust topped with sauce made from real tomatoes and covered in real cheese with awesome toppings that any team would love. As a busy parent, I love how I can grab a box and in less than twenty minutes, I’ll have dinner ready on the table for my exhausted athletes.
Our go to varieties are Tony’s® Pizzeria Style Supreme Pizza and Tony’s® Pizzeria Style MEAT-TRIO® Pizza, but Walmart stocks other delicious varieties as well!
I love pairing pizza with bread sticks, but I love doing things with a twist. So I’m sharing with you my semi-home made garlic bread sticks that I tie into delicious knots basted with a buttery italian seasoning blend.
