Benefits of Team Sport
Participating in team sport provides kids with an opportunity to develop important life skills, including: patience, perseverance, hard work, and a positive attitude toward setbacks. These skills are also transferable to the classroom, where they can help children to perform better on tests and exams, and in their relationships with friends and classmates.
Team sport is also a reliable, consistent, and fun way for kids to get physical activity. It improves their strength, endurance, and health, and reduces their risk for obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.
