5 Life Improving Reasons Why Should Children Play Sports – HTI Sports

Sports, whether it be team-based or individual, are a great activity for children. Sports provide a variety of benefits other than physical activity. Taking part in sports can help build self-esteem and confidence. Also can motivate children to do well academically and can help build social skills. Taking part in sport can also teach children the benefits of goal-setting and practice.

Physical Activity

Physical activity is the most obvious and well known benefit of sports. With the use of technology such as tablets,  games consoles and 24 hour tv services, children are often spend too much time using ‘screen time’ watching television or playing video games. All good and well that video games can provide a social aspect, but sports and games provide an opportunity for exercise that can help keep kids in shape and healthy.

Social Skills

Sports can help children develop social skills that will benefit them throughout their entire lives. They can learn to interact not only with other children their age, but also with adults such as their teachers and sports coaches. Through sports, children learn leadership skills, team-building skills and communication skills that will help them in school, their future careers and personal relationships.


Taking part in sports can have a massive positive impact on a child’s self-esteem and confidence. Children who take part in sports get praise and encouragement from teachers, coaches and parents, which helps to build self-confidence. They also learn to trust and believe in their own abilities and push themselves. Constructive criticism is also a major part of sports. Children learn to accept criticism and use it to their benefit, by setting themselves goals and making plans so that they can improve and achieve their goals.

Academic Success

Children who take part in sports generally excel in academics as well. They can apply the same principles of dedication and hard work learned through sports to their schooling.

Lifelong Health

Sports promotes health and wellness not only through childhood but throughout a child’s lifetime. “Lifetime” sports such as swimming, football, tennis and cricket are especially beneficial because the child can continue to play as an adult, benefiting from the physical activity. Children who take part in sports might also be more aware of healthy food choices. Generally, sports and the promotion of health and wellness, go hand in hand. With teachers, parents and coaches encourage healthy living and being positive role models to the children.

    All great points. I’d add that introducing them to a bit of competitiveness is good for them in the long run as well #anythinggoes

    I couldn’t agree more. Sports play a vital role in building self-esteem and social skills in children. Too bad, many kids spend hours upon hours on computer games resulting in kids that can’t relate with each other.
