ALLOW OUR CHILDREN TO PLAY!!! NY,GA,TX and many other states are playing....Youth Sports, are a great activity for children that provide a variety of benefits other than physical activity. Participation in sports can help build self-esteem and confidence, can motivate children to excel academically and can help build social skills. People who are active dramatically reduce their risk of many diseases, including heart disease and osteoporosis. Regular exercise is also known to reduce the risk of emotional problems such as anxiety and depression. Habits are established early in life and evidence suggests that physically active children are more likely to mature into physically active adults.Some of the many benefits of sport participation for children include:reduced risk of obesity
increased cardiovascular fitness
healthy growth of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons
improved coordination and balance
a greater ability to physically relax and, therefore, avoid the complications of chronic muscular tension (such as headache or back ache)
improved sleep
mental health benefits, such as greater confidence
improved social skills
improved personal skills, including cooperation and leadership.
