As a parent it’s amazing how much thought and effort goes into doing whats best for our Children and trying to give them as many advantages as possible. We clearly all want the best for our Children.
We strongly believe that the benefits of Sports are numerous. Learning Sports and as many as possible at a young age will be beneficial in many ways.
Gaining confidence is one that leaps right out, most young Children are “not sure” if they can do things. With the proper instruction and nurturing encouragement kids can learn athletic movements and sports skills easier than they think and when they do and gain that confidence its awesome.
We have been teaching Children these skills and watching them gain this confidence for many years and it is truly great to be a part of it. It is our belief that kids will utilize this early success so they can grow up confident and more prepared for the future ahead.
Taking instruction from Coaches and separating from their parents at a young age are additional benefits that will help prepare them for School but Sportsmanship and working in groups are such important factors in life as we all know.
Learning how to Win and Lose is something in my option that is age appropriate and something we introduce at the right time. Being competitive is a very good thing but needs to be fostered correctly.
All along you thought I was going to talk about the advantages of Children participating in sports being that they will be a better athlete, make school teams one day, have a chance for a College scholarship etc. For the real benefits of Sports you may have to look deeper....
