Encourage them to be Active in Sports
We all have high hopes for our children. Our goal is that they will grow into well-rounded adults. We make sacrifices and provide them with the best opportunities possible. Sometimes, we are stuck in a fight for their attention because of television, video games, and other sedentary activities. Win the battle and make active fitness a priority.
Give your children the best opportunities in life when you encourage them to participate in a sport. It doesn’t matter if it is a team sport like basketball or a solo one like tennis. Keeping them active will give them the boost they need as they grow. Total Sport Solutions has the equipment and courts you need to turn your backyard into a haven for your entire family. Enjoy games together or allow your player to hone their skills independently. We can help!
Reasons Your Children Should Stay Active
There are many reasons to get up and move as a family and especially as a child. Here are a few:
- They will avoid obesity. By being physically active, your kids are less likely to gain and hold onto weight that can put undue pressure on their joints and cause other health issues.
- They may have higher test scores. With all the oxygen they inhale while participating in their chosen sport, their brains can handle those algebra and chemistry tests with greater levels of mental alertness.
- They are less likely to engage in unhealthy activities. Your athlete is more apt to make better choices and avoid smoking, drug use, alcohol, and unsafe sex.
- They experience depression less often. Being physically active helps your child avoid high levels of depression. It keeps their mind engaged and able to think clearly.
- They have higher self-esteem. A side benefit of less depression is self-esteem that is higher than most. They don’t worry about what others think about them.
- They may be more productive in their careers. Because of the discipline of sports, your athlete will carry that into their years at college and their chosen career. As adults they will perform better and be more successful at work.
- They may have lower health costs. Staying healthy also reduces the need to go to a physician. They may have fewer colds and other illnesses as their immune system is more robust from staying active and fit.
- They teach their kids to do the same. Active kids generally grow into productive adults and guide their children to do the same. Imagine creating an inter-generational legacy of health!
