Sports, whether team-based or individual, are a great activity for children that provide a variety of benefits other than physical activity. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem and confidence, can motivate children to excel academically and can help build social skills. Participation also can teach children the benefits of goal-setting and practice.
Sports provide students with an outlet for pent-up energy, and a framework for learning how to work as a team. Furthermore, sports teach kids to face personal challenges, and to overcome adversity.
Students can apply the same principles of dedication and hard work learned through sports participation to their studies.
