Why play sports?

People play sports for a variety of reasons. Kids should play sports for a few main reasons: health, fun, and education. Learning how to move your body and maintain a healthy lifestyle is important from a young age. If it is not fun, you will not stick with it. Let your kids choose and try lots of different activities.

The goal is to have fun, learn the game and stay active. NOT winning! Keep the experience positive. And don't forget to get out there and play.......


  1. I agree with your post completely. Children should be involved with sports at an early age to achieve one purpose and one purpose only. That purpose is to have fun. I believe that by having fun children will stay or get healthier, learn different rules and games and finally set themselves up to be involved with lifetime activities. In addition to having fun, the goal is also to achieve or work towards lifetime fitness.

  2. Kids are like most adults, we don't want to try something new or difficult if the chances of the experience being positive are slim. Let them learn in a positive and encouraging atmosphere - if they want more they will let you know!

  3. I think you are right that kids are like most adults when it comes to physical activity. I find that it is hard to get teenage kids to participate in some really fun activities if they have not had a good experience with physical activity before in life. This is why I believe that Elementary physical education teachers have an extremely important job in making physical education activities a fun experience for all children. It takes a lot of encouragement sometimes for those children who have not had a positive experience with physical activity to take that leap outside their comfort zones. But that is our job! Make it a great time!
