Sport is an important learning environment for children. Studies have shown that children who play sports perform better at school, are less likely to use drugs and smoke, have less self-esteem issues and of course, there are the physical benefits.
Sports can help teach honesty, teamwork, fair play, respect for ourselves and for others. Sport can demonstrate the importance of hard work and determination. Through participation in sport young people learn the value of discipline, dedication to a goal, the quest for excellence, risk, and growth.
