Benefits of Sports
Nowadays Children often spend too much time watching television or playing video games. Sports is a wonderful substitute to keep kids happy and engaged. Research finds that in addition to improved physical health, sport plays a primarily positive role in child’s development, including improved academic achievement, higher self-esteem, fewer behavioural problems, and better psychosocial health. Studies found that participation in sports helps youngsters develop a host of crucial skills which give them a leg up as they enter the work world and achieve success for decades afterward as they develop stronger leadership skills, self-confidence and self-respect and work better in teams.
One sport or Multi Sport
Most experts believe it is crucial to participate in multiple sports till the age 10-12 that will help develop all areas of the athlete’s body. In fact, even children with an aptitude — and love — for a sport should not specialize in it until they are well into their teens. This will help prevent over-use injuries and reduce the risk of burnout. Also practice in each sport improves ability in every other activity.Getting experience in many different sport is a good way to develop love for sports, which provides the foundation for achievement in sport, and also for success in life.
