Sports, whether team-based or

individual, are a great activity for
children that provide a variety of
benefits other than physical
activity.
1. Physical Activity

Physical activity is the most
obvious benefit of sports
participation. Sports practices
and games provide an
opportunity for exercise that can
help keep kids in shape and
healthy.

2. Social Skills

Sports participation can help children
develop social skills that will benefit
them throughout their entire lives. They
learn to interact not only with other
children their age, but also with older
individuals in their coaches and sports
officials. Kids learn leadership skills,
team-building skills and communication
skills that will help them in school, their
future career and personal relationships.

3. Academic Success
They can apply the same principles of
dedication and hard work learned
through sports participation to their
studies. According to an article
published on the website America,
playing on a high school sports team
increases a young men and women
chances of graduating from college by 41
percent.
4. Lifelong Health
Children who participate in
sports might also be more aware
of healthy food choices. Sports
participation is an excellent
avenue to promote health and
wellness.
