Super Bowl fever came and dominated NYC last week, and got us in the mood to get out and get active. Or maybe it’s all this snow that cooping us up in the house? All of us want to just get out and burn some energy! Thankfully we live in NYC and there is no shortage of indoor sports to keep us active.
Top 5 Indoor Sports to Get Through Winter
1. Getting Spring Fever and ready for Baseball season?
Don’t fear! NY Empire Baseball can have you running around the bases today! Hosted at PS 811 on the Upper West Side, classes range from 4 years up to 14. Dig out your baseball glove and hat from storage and head up to catch some fly balls!

4. Does Your Little One Like to Kick Things? Soccer Class is the Answer!
If your toddler is running out of things to do in your tiny apartment and has resorted to drop kicking your cell phone across the room, maybe it’s time to join us for a soccer class! Not only do they learn foot skills, they learn listening skills and how to follow directions. Plus, is there any way better to burn some of that energy? We love Soc Roc – see a full schedule of available classes here.
5. Looking to Try Something New? How About Martial Arts?
We do live in NYC, so why not add some self-defense moves and techniques to your little ones agenda? Taekwon-Do offers many physical benefits, as well as improving concentration skills. It’s also good for teaching discipline and respect – by focusing on these virtues, Taekwon-Do develops self-esteem, kindness, confidence and spirit in students.
