How Sports Keep Kids Healthy and Promote Well Being

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Kids sports can do much more for your children than just keep them occupied and teach them new talents.  Kids sports promote great cardiovascular health and healthy body weight, not to mention coordination and muscular growth. They also give parents the chance to attend exciting sports events, which can be a great bonding experience and provide lasting memories. 

Here are five amazing benefits of kids sports that you might not be aware of.

  • Kids sports can teach children good sportsmanship. They’ll learn how to deal with losses and wins in life and know how to handle both gracefully, minus tantrums and other antisocial behavior.
  • Sports also help children learn how to work with others as a team. Even kids sports for individuals require working with coaches and trainers as a team effort.
  • Statistics have shown that kids who are involved in sports are more inclined to academic success. Sports help to teach kids discipline and motivation that carries over into other areas of their lives.
  • Kids who play sports are less likely to use drugs, including drinking and smoking. Sports require good health and kids who are concerned with good performance in sports have more reasons to steer clear of drugs.
  • Sports can help your children to form new and lasting friendships with other kids. Children who play sports get to spend time in a group of other kids working towards a common goal, which solidifies bonds and creates friendships.

There are lots of exciting benefits which sports can bring to your children's lives.
