How Youth Sports Programs Can Benefit Children and Parents

Getting your child involved in youth sports programs offers many tangible benefits and rewards--not just for your child, but for you, too. Youth sports programs run the gamut from soccer to basketball, and they are a worthwhile investment of time and money for the whole family.

Let's begin by looking at the benefits these programs offer to your child:

Physical Benefits


Increased physical fitness is the most obvious benefit to participating in a sports program: 

   • Children who regularly participate in sports show increased coordination and  better  overall health than their peers who do not get involved.

   • Increased physical activity allows for better weight management as well.

Social Skills


Participating in sports will help your child build their social skills:

   • By working with others on their team, your child can understand the concept of teamwork and hones their leadership skills.

   • Your child will learn about sportsmanship and treating others with respect.

   • Finally, your child will also learn about the concept of success vs. failure, and about the dedication it takes to achieve success.

Fun


Participating in sports is just plain fun for children:

   • It allows them to enjoy time spent with their friends.

   • It also encourages them to make new friends.

Strengthens Your Parent-Child Bond

The best benefit youth sports programs can offer you is a chance to bond with your child:

   • Watching your child play sports can help you modify your expectations. Watching your child learn to win and to lose is a valuable lesson in control for parents also.

   • Participation makes your child feel special. After all, who doesn't want to have someone cheering them on?

   • You may decide to get more active. If your child has taken up a sport that looks like fun, have him/her teach you some moves over the weekend, or better yet, join a Leesburg Recreation adult league!

Sports programs offer benefits that go way beyond physical fitness. They can be a fun learning experience for the whole family. Find a sport or activity your child loves and go for it!
