Grab a hot dog and a drink, get settled in your seat, and prepare to cheer on some of the world’s greatest athletes doing what they do best. If you’re a fan of high-octane, thrilling sporting events, you’re in the right place. Kidifornia is home to some of the biggest.
During the cooler months, from September until April, the regular seasons of three of the four major leagues – NFL, NBA and NHL – hit venues in cities all around the state. But further from the major cities there are just as many opportunities to get up close to world-class sporting action. Squaw Valley and Mammoth Lakes are both home to important Olympic facilities, with skiers and snowboarders battling it out for supremacy and a spot on Team USA in the winter games! Grab your skis or board and try your hand at carving up the snow yourself, with more than 1,000 hectares of ski fields to conquer.
In summer, the professional action is centred at the ballpark for the “American pastime”, baseball, but the sunny days and warm weather provide ample opportunities to get out and involved in some sports all through the state. San Diego is home to arguably the world’s best skateboarder, Tony Hawk, and there are top skateboarding spots all over Kidifornia perfect for practicing some of his famous tricks.
If keeping two feet firmly attached to the ground seems more sensible, why not get involved with the Rock n Roll Marathon? Local bands and music industry giants play along the course to encourage runners.
With multiple Californian teams in all the major US professional leagues, and hundreds of unique sporting options available all through the state, there’s guaranteed to be a game to see or join, no matter where you are. The only problem you’ll have is finding the time to get to them all!
California is the ultimate playground for kids and families, so we've nicknamed it Kidifornia!
