One (egg) For The Team


Young athletes have had to give-up on so many things, the joy of Holidays should not be one of them. Coach Cooper of Mesa, Arizona is using InstaTeam to organize a virtual egg hunt this Easter for his team. “Before even little athletes could learn to be a team, they have gone into social distancing. We need to do activities as a team, such that children relate to it”, says Cooper.
Coaches need to get creative to involve the younger athletes into team activities, else there could be emotional problems. Kids may find it hard to blend into the team. With this premise, Coach Cooper has organized a virtual egg hunt for his team. Coach has made egg shaped colourful cut-outs that are hidden in his backyard. He will use live-streaming with his team and go around the garden. The team players have to spot the eggs. Each player gets a point for spotting an egg. At the end of the game, the scores are totalled and each player gets candies equal to the number of eggs they spotted during the virtual egg hunt.
Parents have also welcomed the idea. Parents would wrap the candies in fancy packaging with team logo pasted on the pack to make it look like a team gift. “Staying connected is important. My eight year old son gets anxious with the idea of being around people. He fears the virus will infect him”, says Joan, a team parent. “Desperate times, desperate measures. But we are pleased Coach Cooper is keeping the team activity going. Hope there will be more action of this sort to keep kids active and engaged”, adds Beth, another team parent.
Kids are looking forward to the activity and so are the parents. Social distancing has started impacting adults and kids alike. During this testing time, it is absolutely important that people stay connected, active and engaged.
