3 Benefits of Playing Sports for Kids

      1. SOCIAL BENEFITS

Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine reports that out of 14,000 high school athletes, the ones who regularly played sports were less likely to use drugs.

The National Household Survey of Drug Abuse found that students who played sports were less likely to have smoked cigarettes or used drugs and were more likely to disapprove of others using them.

The Women’s Sports Foundation has stated that female high school athletes are 80% less likely to become pregnant than non-athletes.

       2. ACADEMIC BENEFITS

Studies of children in Colorado, Wyoming and Iowa found that playing sports can increase success in the classroom. These studies showed that athletes have higher grade point averages, higher standardized test scores, better attendance records, lower dropout rates, and are more likely to go to college.

       3. CAREER BENEFITS

A survey of individuals who are Executive Vice Presidents of 75 Fortune 500 companies showed that 95% of them played sports in high school.

Playing sports may not guarantee higher incomes, and executive level jobs. But sports can prepare children for the leadership and team work skills, work ethic and determination that are needed to be leaders in the business world and in our communities.

THAT’S WHY YOU ENCOURAGE YOUR CHILDREN TO PLAY SPORTS!
