The Benefits of Sports for Kids

The Benefits of Sports for Kids
Posted January 29th, 2014 @ 11:44am

Kids’ sports can promote cooperative play, teamwork, and good sportsmanship while helping to refine gross motor skills. Sports can also help children get along with and become accepted by others, including peers, family members, teachers, and coaches. Plus, through positive feedback, group play builds self-esteem, helping your child realize that she's a capable personal who is able to accomplish significant achievements.

So how do you pick the sports that are fit for your child?

Definitely take into account his/her personality and interests.

Assertive children may be better suited for team sports while less aggressive children may prefer baseball, swimming, or gymnastics where they are given more space and independence from the rest of the team.
