    It’s Not Always Easy,

    But It Is Always Worth It

    Coming up with the money and shuttling kids to practice and events is not always easy, but extensive research indicates that children that are routinely involved in organized sports tend to be better students, are more community and civic minded, get in far less trouble, and are more successful in their adult lives. In addition, organized sport activities are proven to help develop:

     

    Leadership Skills

    Sports provide a valuable training ground to cultivate strong leaders by teaching young athletes how to perform up to their potential, how to set individual and team goals, and how to achieve those goals through practice, preparation and determined effort.

     

    Sportsmanship & Resiliency

    Team sports develop a competitive spirit while exposing players to lessons in how to win graciously as well as how to handle adversity and pick themselves up after losing. These simple concepts build a strong foundation for dealing with successes and disappointments throughout their lives.

     

    Community & Loyalty

    Athletic programs foster a sense of community, team and school spirit for students and parents alike. They give both the participants and the spectators a sense of identity and the collective experience of belonging to something larger than themselves.

     

    Independence & Confidence

    When children play sports they are faced with physical and emotional challenges that provide them an opportunity to discover solutions on their own. As they develop an understanding of what their bodies can do and see a difference in their performance based on their preparation and training, they develop a sense of accomplishment and independence, which helps develop a positive self‐image.

     

    Appreciation Of Health And Fitness

    Through athletic endeavors, children improve agility, coordination, balance, flexibility, endurance and strength. The positive results include: building healthy bones and muscles, weight control, reduced anxiety and stress, and improved cardiovascular fitness. More importantly, it establishes a healthy pattern of lifetime physical activity.

     

    Teamwork And Social Skills

    Organized sports are very beneficial for the development of social skills in a child. On a team, young athletes benefit from working together to reach a common goal.  Players learn to put the team before their individual interests, which develops the qualities of selflessness, cooperation, camaraderie, and responsibility to others.
