It’s time to put the spotlight on team sports. Offering more than just physical benefits, team sports can help kids grow emotionally, mentally and provide an opportunity for socialising.

Tell a child to exercise and they may put up a fight. Tell them to go out and play with their friends on the other hand, and you won’t get an argument.

When kids play sports, they don’t even realize how much healthier they are becoming – building stamina, endurance and healthier hearts thanks to all the aerobic activity.

While team sports require team effort, kids learn about leadership and responsibility too, as they recognize the vital roles they play on their team.

Leadership isn’t always about who is the best or on top, it’s about being accountable for your actions and being a role model. The ability to work well with others is a skill young athletes will take with them through the rest of their lives.

Perhaps most valuable of all: the more kids learn about themselves and their abilities, the more self-confidence and self-esteem they will develop.
