TEAMS SPORTS GIVE CHILDREN THE OPPORTUNIT­Y TO:

-

be less selfish and to think of others

deal with losing as well as winning. They learn that things are not going to go their way, or the team’s way, all the time

overcome shyness by putting them into situations where they need to communicat­e with others

become more sociable in different environmen­ts. They have to deal with different people, who may or may not be their friends.
