Six benefits of the program:
With the rapid increase of computers, technology and video games, participating in school sport programs have become more of a past time. There is an important time and a place for computer-based entertainment, however activities in the external environment are vitally important in the development of all children.
Exactly how do children benefit from the school sports program?
When children participate in sport and outdoor activities, they not only engage in beneficial exercise, they learn the crucial life-long habits of keeping mentally and physically fit. These important life habits combined with other life skills, such as correct eating, will ensure that children are subject to the basics of living and sustaining a healthy lifestyle.
MIND + MUSCLE = MEMORY
Physical education and competitive sports are an effective way to develop a student’s problem-solving skills and creativity. They also promote team work and team building, trust in one another and your team, respect for the rules, your team mates, and the opposition. It can also lead to strong and lasting friendships.
The best activities for your children are those that encourage their natural curiosity and interests.
Many activities take place in a relaxed environment in order to promote healthy methods for dealing with stress. In an increasingly complex and pressure-oriented world, the more positive ways we can find to deal with stress the better and being able to start this at a young age is highly beneficial.
When children learn new skills and engage in social activities, their self-confidence increases. Learning social skills such as cooperation, negotiation, and conflict resolution in a fun and relaxed environment will help them understand how to communicate effectively with people- a valuable skill in all aspects of life from home life to the workplace.
Team Spirit and Camaraderie
Teamwork is a vital life skill and a key ingredient in success. Team sport requires children to work together in order to achieve a common goal, removing the focus from the individual to the team.
Having to balance multiple activities (school, homework, family life, and after-school sports activities) can teach a child the necessary skills of time management and the importance of prioritising, planning and structure. Not only is the school sports program fun and entertaining, it promotes and engages important life skills and helps teach children responsibility.
School trainees engaged in the program will have unlimited benefits. Your students have the opportunity to become a trainee in the future.
These benefits include:
The program will be delivered by sports officer trainees.
