2. Confidence and self-esteem
Building physical strength and endurance helps build confidence. Developing competence in sporting skills can lead to a sense of personal effectiveness and feelings of autonomy and build self-esteem. Sporting activities also give kids the opportunity to become more sociable in different environments. They have to deal with different people, who may or may not be their friends
When you play a team sport you learn that it doesn't just come down to the best player, it comes down to working as a team, accepting decisions and understanding that people have different abilities. Kids learn important lessons in personal values, such as fair play, respect, cooperation and working together. They also learn that things aren't going to go their way all the time, and that they need to respect their team mates as well as referees and sports officials.
4. Decision making and resilience
Sporting activities give kids opportunities to make choices, building their sense of responsibility and developing their decision-making skills. Goal setting as a team encourages children to plan and think ahead and understand the link between making decisions and taking action. Kids who play team sports learn how to be more resilient when presented with a setback, and are less likely to feel isolated.
5. It's fun
Playing a sport allows a child to have fun with friends. If the sport stops being enjoyable, maybe it’s too competitive or too much of a commitment. Trying a new sport could re-inspire the fun factor.
