WHY SPORTS FOR CHILDREN?
Children have to be active every day. Physical activity stimulates growth and leads to improved physical and emotional health.Today,research shows that the importance of physical activity in children is stronger than ever. For example, medical researchers have observed that highly active children are less likely to suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer of the colon, obesity, and coronary heart disease later in life.
Exercise is also known to relieve stress. Some children experience as much stress, depression, and anxiety as adults do. And because exercise improves health, a fit child is more likely to be well-rested and mentally sharp.
Sports improve a child’s skill at arithmetic, reading, and memorization. But sport, not just exercise, gives a child more than just physical well-being; it contributes to a child’s development both psychologically and socially.
Sport is an important learning environment for children.Sport can affect a child’s development of self-esteem and self-worth.It is also within sport that peer status and peer acceptance is established and developed.Children who are competent at sports are more easily accepted by children of their own age, and are more likely to be team captains and group leaders. Such children usually have better social skills.
