The valuable life lessons team sports can teach your kids

Posted: 5 October 2018

Sport has the ability to teach kids healthy habits and lessons they can take with them throughout their adult life.

Sports are a great way for kids to remain active and playing outside. As well as these physical benefits, kids participation in sport also has many social benefits and can teach them valuable life skills they can utilize for the rest of their lives!
These valuable life lessons include:

Developing healthy habits:
Within this digital age it's not uncommon for children to prefer to play with the latest game console over playing outside. This is why it is more important than ever for kids to understand the benefits of living an active lifestyle at an early age. As not only does it establish healthy habits for your child to follow growing up, sport helps kids develop the necessary skills to remain active within the future.

Developing self-belief:
As children develop their skills and abilities their self-image and belief in their own ability grows. Plus there is no greater feeling than playing a great game or being the winning team and having all your team mates cheer you on and celebrate!

Teaches them about obstacles:
Life isn’t perfect. Every now and then we are confronted with an obstacle or two and have to find a way to get back on our feet again. Within sports, a huge component of the game is overcoming these obstacles such as losing to another team or having an injured player. By being exposed to these set-backs through sport at such a young age teaches kids that life isn't always going to be a smooth ride and to prepare them for future bumps in the road that they may encounter. 

The ability to interact with different people:
Within junior sporting teams children are given plenty of opportunity to communicate and make friends with different groups of kids, whether it's in their current team or over a few years as they progress through different levels. This exposure teaches them how to get along with children from different backgrounds, which will assist them in later life when dealing with a diverse mix of people in school and the workplace.

Hard work:
Although very fun and sociable, participating in sport as a kid can also involve a lot of hard work. This includes showing up to training, working together as a team to improve results and showing up to games ready to go! These lessons can set a standard for future work ethics and teaches kids that hard work really does pay off, whether it’s an improved kick or their team moving up the ladder.
