Youth Sports: Prayer Before the Game

Game 15

My son's baseball game was rained out Friday night. This game will be made up on Saturday. This freed Nic up to play for his school's volleyball team. His team ended up losing the match 2 games to 1.

There were two things that I found interesting that I wanted to share.

1) I was sitting next to another parent. We were talking and I told him that we are in the middle of a crazy week. The schedule had us playing up to 7 baseball games, 2 soccer games and 1 volleyball game from last Wednesday to Sunday. He said, "Oh wow, you do not have a life." I responded, "This is my life and I love every minute of it." And I do. This will all be over before my wife and I know it and we are enjoying it thoroughly.

2) The game started with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance. Although my son goes to a Catholic School and participates in CYO athletics often, a public opening prayer is not the norm at every venue.



The Main Point

I liked the prayer. It set the event its proper perspective. Crazy Youth Sports Parents often lose perspective.

  1. One thing you should do before playing a certain game or sport is you pray. It can keep you away from injuries and any other sport-related problems.
