The Role of Sports in Childhood: Why play sports?
Besides benefits to health and fitness, there is a lot to be gained from sports. Children learn the value of practicing to improve-- a lesson that translates well into other areas of life (including school work). Sports ability is also an avenue for many kids to develop an identity and self confidence. Confidence achieved through sports, even at an early age, contributes to confidence in other areas, helping to make kids successful in everything they do.
At Future Star Baseball, we work with students to focus on improving their personal physical skill sets. At this same time, we consciously aim to instill a self confidence that will follow and support the player in endeavors beyond athletics.
