SPORTS YOKOHAMA Vol.39 : Feature(3/3)

Sports Promotion Activities in Yokohama

As reported in the August 2013 issue (Volume 38) of Sports Yokohama on the Yokohama City Sports Promotion Program, the Yokohama City government is conducting a variety of promotional and educational activities, with “promotion of physical strength enhancement measures for children” cited as one of the goals of the program.https://www.hamaspo.com/s-yoko/vol_s038/special01.html

And, through various programs, Yokohama City provides parents and children with opportunities to do sports.

Support for the creation of a framework for programs aimed at the enhancement of the physical strength of children

The Yokohama Sports Association hosts a school-based physical strength enhancement program for children (called Iki-iki Kids) where children acquire the habit of engaging in physical activity spontaneously on a daily basis by learning to enjoy moving their body. In this program, exercises (or games) are done with special tools and rules during breaks and after school so that even those children who are not good at sports can enjoy physical activity. Also, the program is run in collaboration with parents, local instructors, school officials, teachers, after-school care centers and other local organizations with the purpose of creating an environment where the entire local community is committed to the enhancement of the physical strength of children.

Junior sports classes and sports aversion overcoming programs offered at nearby sports centers

The sports centers in Yokohama City offer junior sports classes intended for elementary school pupils to gain in basic physical fitness and develop the nervous system while enjoying various types of exercise.
Some of these facilities also host programs where children who do not like exercise are encouraged to try different kinds of sports and have fun so that they feel less intimidated about engaging in physical activity.

V sit balance - a good exercise you can do at home

To do a V sit balance, you keep your raised legs in position. This helps you improve your sense of balance and strengthen and coordinate the muscles of your entire body including abdominal, back and calf muscles. (The exercise is very effective not only for kids but for adults with a thickening waist). Sit on the floor with your knees bent, raise your feet obliquely upward with your back kept straight and hold the feet in position for about 10 seconds. Make sure your legs are kept straight (upper photo).
First, you may have your child raise his or her feet one at a time or do the V sit balance with the hands on the floor. Or you could sit across from your child and do the V sit balance together so that the bottoms of your feet touch those of the child’s feet (lower photo). Start with whatever your child can do, and practice together so that the child can hold his or her feet in position perfectly.
