New Activity Programs Keep Kids Healthy and Safe from Harm on the Streets(September 14, 2013)
(PRWEB) September 14, 2013
The danger hours for youth growing up are from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. In todays age the activities list has changed due to budget cuts, real estate, new more exciting individual sports, and the lack of funding and excitement for team sports.
With kids on the streets during these times they are 80% more susceptible to being caught up in drugs, getting hit by a car, hanging out with the wrong crowd, being accosted, forming lazy habits that lead to obesity, becoming addicted to video games, and possibly joining a gang.
The new age activities have proven to be very successful at not only keeping their attention, but appealing to the cool factor and what is their current interest.
Actions Sports, mainly Scooters, Skateboards, and BMX bikes are the most popular with the kids of today. Freshpark Industries has mastered ways for even the smallest venues to have their own Action Sports Youth Programs.
Freshpark offers programs that come with just a few obstacles all the way up to their most popular programs, the Park in a Cart, and the Park in a Box. The Park in a Box even comes with Boards, Pads, Helmets, and Scooter, plus the container to store them in. They even offer affordable liability policies for those who need it.
They have been part of the Summer Night Lights for the last 6 years in the city of Los Angeles. This program has been such a huge success that it has reported lowering the crime rates within the program locations up to 76%.
Freshpark has been featured on Discovery Channel covering a program they had success with at some Boys and Girls Clubs on Military Bases. Freshpark has had 14 years being featured in many publications and tv shows with Skateboarding and Scootering in YMCAs, Churches, Boys and Girls Clubs, Schools, Park and Rec Centers, X-Games, Dew Tour, and even Vacation Resorts.
Freshpark Industries has figured out how to keep all kids busy, not just the ones who have the talent to make the team. Their programs carry less liability than baseball, football, basketball, cheerleading, soccer, and even swimming. For more information go to http://www.freshpark.com.
