New year, new goals.

If your goals include more experiences with your kids, we have some great local sporting teams that won’t break the bank but will get you to see something new. If you’re a college sports fan or even just want to go to a high school game, there are plenty of choices to take your little one to. Make sure you sign up for emails so you’re aware of when these options take place.

George Mason University Men’s Basketball: “Star Wars Day” on February 15 at 4:30 p.m.

Through the Super Reader program, if kids read 2 books, they can claim free tickets to the game. For the adults attending, the program also offers discounted tickets once you register the kids. They get to walk onto the court before the start of the game and they get a free green cape (that reads Virginia529). Parking is free.

Washington Wizards Game: Kids Day is January 12

Lots of pre-game activities for kids beginning at 10:30 a.m., which include LEGO activations, face painters, balloon artists, games and the mascot G-Wiz appearance. There’s a CertifiKID deal that includes a t-shirt.

Harlem Globetrotters at EagleBank or CapitalOne, March 20-21

Another CertifiKID deal for tickets to all 3 shows, and includes 35% off tickets.

Another option is to check out the local high school teams. Each sport has their scheduled published online so you can pick the one that best fits your schedule. Here’s the Madison Basketball Schedule and the Marshall Basketball Schedule. Both will likely have a small admission fee.

You can also check sites like Groupon for D.C. sporting outings as well.
