5 Things a Backyard Court Teaches Your Kids

30x25

There is a general agreement that sports offer a great opportunity to teach kids important lessons. Having a backyard court means that the classroom to teach your children is much closer. Here are 5 things we think every child should learn that are enhanced by having a home court.

1. The Benefits of Physical Exercise--After just a few weeks of outdoor play, even your kids are likely to realize that they are getting stronger, quicker, and healthier. If all they do is sit indoors in front of a screen, they can't experience that.

2. The Fun of Competition--The world is a competitive place. Letting young people learn how to deal with competitive situations, and with both winning and losing, while in their own backyard is a great way to help them develop a healthy attitude about competition.

3. The Importance of Teamwork--Playing basketball, volleyball or doubles tennis helps kids learn how to work with others toward a goal.

4. The Value of Hard Work--Kids often idolize sports celebrities, but do not have a good sense of the amount of hard work it takes to develop professional-level skills and physical strength. Giving them an arena to work on developing their skills and talents for a sport is a great way to help them experience what real dedication looks like.

5. The Impact of Parental Guidance--There is no better place for parents and kids to experience bonding time than on the court. Kids learn to trust their parents' judgement and guidance in an atmosphere that is enjoyable and fund for all. It is a great way to teach concepts like honesty, sportsmanship, and responsibility.

Make sure your children have an opportunity to learn these important lessons. Let Grand Slam Courts install a court in your backyard. Call for a quote and to set a time to visit one of our demo courts here.
