(StatePoint) The summer sports season is here for kids across the country.  As a parent, you can help make it a successful and fun one.

The experts at Sun Products, the makers of all detergent, offer these tips to help you and your little all-stars get your game faces on:

Safety First

Scrapes and bruises come with the territory, so don’t sweat it when these minor injuries occur. Keep a first aid kit on hand to clean and cover nicks and cuts when they happen.

It’s hot out there and your kids are playing hard, so cool them down with flair. Boost team pride by doling out frozen ice treats in your team’s colors.

Post-Game Fun

You win some; you lose some – but it’s how you play the game that matters! Teach your kids that giving it your all is what counts most.

Keep spirits high by making fun post-game plans for the entire team. Celebrate a game well done by taking the players out for a pizza party, a barbeque in the park, or a trip to the pool.

Keeping Uniforms Clean

Whether you’re playing a team sport, or just having fun in the yard, summer means lots of sliding into home plate and mounds of dirty uniforms.

Use a trusted laundry detergent that will lift out tough grass and mud stains. For example, new all detergent combines in-wash pre-treaters with its active stainlifters to attack many tough stains, so your little athletes can get as messy as they want. Also, all is the Official Detergent of Little League Baseball and Softball.
