 Private School Shares 3 Reasons Your Child Should Play Sports , Honolulu, Hawaii

Team sports are a great way for your child to stay active, forge new friendships, and work through challenges in a supportive environment. In tandem with a comprehensive private school education, playing sports can impart invaluable lessons to support your child’s development. To help demonstrate these key benefits, Hawaii Baptist Academy in Honolulu shares three positive impacts sports will have.

Why Your Child Should Play Sports 

1. Appreciate the Value of Commitment and Hard Work 

private schoolParticipating in organized sports is a great way for your child to learn the value of commitment. By waking up for practice, regularly performing drills, and dedicating time to hone their skills, your child will begin to equate success with hard work and commitment. This is an important concept that they can carry over into other aspects of their lives, such as committing to academic achievement at their private school.  

2. Learn Valuable Life Lessons

In addition to learning the value of commitment and hard work, team sports will also teach your child a variety of other important life lessons. Children will learn how to work together with others, become more resilient and understand how to lose gracefully and persevere regardless of the obstacles they face. Developing this skill set and healthy coping mechanisms will boost their confidence, preparing them for inevitable challenges later in life.

3. Stay Active & Healthy

In today’s technology-driven world, it’s increasingly important to encourage an active lifestyle. Sports are a great way to keep your child in healthy physical shape and improve their fitness levels. In addition, research dictates that children who participate in sports can also enhance their mind-body connection, reducing the risk of diseases such as dementia later in life.
