Title: Reasons Why Kids Should Play Sports


1
REASONS WHY KIDS SHOULD PLAY SPORTS
2
  • Kids at day camp love to play sports
  • in fact, youngsters thrive getting involved in
    all kinds of sports.

3
  • From
  • goofy soft ball games at summer day camp to
  • recreational leagues and
  • Little League All Star teams,
  • there are so many ways that kids can learn and
    grow from playing sports.

4
  • Physical, academic and social benefits can all be
    achieved while having lots of fun along the way.

5
  • UP AND OUT

6
  • In a time when so many kids are glued to their
    techie devices, being on a sports team gets kids
    into the habit of getting out and exercising
    every day.

7
  • They may not be thinking about it while theyre
    out there practicing layups, running the bases or
    doing soccer drills

8
  • but its all contributing to their overall
    health and instilling habits that can lead to a
    healthier lifestyle right into adulthood.

9
  • KIDS LEARN TO FUNCTION AS A TEAM

10
From school and summer camp right through college
and the job market, a team player is a valuable
asset.
11
The ability to put individual needs, differences
and desires aside is a key component in being on
a team, starting on your youth soccer league.
12
Kids on a sports team need to learn how to get
along with people they may not like and try to
concentrate on what will work best for the team,
even if its at the cost of their own individual
glory.
13
  • MANAGING TIME

14
Of course, schoolwork comes first, and
extracurricular activities like sports should not
get in the way of academics.
15
By participating in athletics, your child will
need to develop some good time management skills.
16
You can help by showing him how to manage time
and prioritize responsibilities so that homework,
chores, sports practices, games and competitions
can effectively fit into his or her schedule.
17
For example, he may have to finish homework
rather than watching some TV or playing outside
afterschool in order to have everything done
before practice.
18
  • PROMOTES
  • SELF-ESTEEM

19
A well-coached youth athletic team will help
promote self-esteem.
20
When helping your child decide which sport hed
most enjoy, look for one where she can grow and
improve and be sure to provide positive
reinforcement along the way.
21
As kids work hard to get better and better at
their sport, theyll experience a joyful feeling
of accomplishment and self-confidence.
22
  • RAMPING UP
  • SOCIAL SKILLS

23
  • Kids participating on sports teams develop social
    skills that allow them to have a good social
    standing the rest of their lives.

24
  • Not only do they learn to interact with a variety
    of their peers, but they also learn to be able to
    interact effectively with older people, in
    particular their coaches and various sports
    officials.

25
  • DEALING WITH ADVERSITY

26
  • Your child will inevitably make errors, miss
    shots and strike out at some point when they play
    sports.

27
  • Learning how to handle these kinds of adversity
    can give them valuable skills for dealing with
    lifes curve balls right through adulthood.

28
  • Learning from mistakes and coping graciously with
    adversity are excellent character building
    experiences that will serve your child well in
    school and beyond.

29
  • THEY ARE FUN!

30
Mostly, sports are just fun. Youre out running
around, learning a skill you love and
experiencing the thrill of winning and the
not-so-thrilling lows of defeat.
31
But whatever you do, youre surrounded by your
teammates and the sense of camaraderie and fun
that accompanies the experience of being a part
of the team.
32
  • Let your kids enjoy the sports experience of
    summer day camp at Maplewood Summer Day Camp.

33
  • Experienced staff will keep your child both safe
    and busy with
  • Arts and crafts
  • Games
  • Water sports
  • Gymnastics and more
