With the school year underway, you may think your child’s schedule is already too full between homework, making friends, and learning new things, but signing them up for a fall sport, such as basketball, can have a variety of benefits!

Health Benefits

In today’s society, childhood obesity is a major issue, so it is crucial to teach youth how to take care of their body. There are many health benefits of playing a sport, including:

  • Balance
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Weight control
  • Strong bones and muscles
  • Endurance
  • Cardiovascular health

By enrolling them in a sport now, your child can learn healthy habits and find a physical activity they love.

Social Skill Building

When you are on a team, you learn how to form relationships with your coaches, teammates, and rivals. This provides your child with practice in a variety of real-world situations. From having anxiety over a championship game or experiencing unfairness when they are seated on the bench, your child will learn how to handle these hard lessons and how to navigate relationships while developing crucial social skills such as communication, teamwork, and building friendships.

Learning to Follow Rules

Sports provide a great structure for what it is like to function within a set of strict rules. This shows your child that you cannot change the rules of the game and that the rules apply to everyone. Your child will learn how boundaries and rules work within the world of sports, and for older children, it will teach them how to excel while following the rules.
