“Sports are like school? No way!” you say.
To which we retort, “Heck yes.”
School is where kids go to learn. It’s more complicated than that, but we assume you already know those benefits, so let’s move on to sports.
School and Sports are Good for Kids
Sports foster the same foundational ideals as school, but in a more active way. Like a classroom, there is a group of children who spend time together focused on a mission.
Let’s use basketball as our specific sport example today.
The mission of basketball is to dribble, pass, shoot, and score more points than the other team. Kids work together in teams of five on the court to make this happen. Since kids can’t readily pick up the sport on the court at game time, there must be days of practice before each game. The practice includes listening to the coach, following directions to learn the skills, and practicing teamwork to make plays run successfully. All of this is put together during the game to work toward that rewarding victory!
