Organized sports offer benefits to your child that can last a lifetime. Not only does it help children become more physically fit, they learn cooperation, self-discipline, perseverance, and social skills while doing something fun. The psychological and social benefits of organized sports help children to learn to handle strenuous situations, and improve self-esteem and interpersonal relationships.
Participation in sports is an effective way of teaching children humility and hard work to improve their skills. Through the objective reality of success or failure in sports, children will come to understand they cannot always bend their environment to their will. But with continued dedication, they will see more wins, and fewer losses. This vital lesson will be transferred to their scholastic life, where the benefits of dedication and hard work will manifest into ever increasing achievement in the form of better grades and quicker learning.
