America’s pastime offers a lot of fantastic life lessons to kids, adolescents, and even adults. When someone loves a game enough to dedicate themselves to playing it as well as possible, it motivates them to make a lot of other choices in their life to help them advance and improve their skill sets. With physical activity such as sports, it can set them down a lifelong path of healthier decisions.
If you play any type of sports with any kind of seriousness, then regular exercise is par for the course. Even in the offseason you will be training in the gym and at home, working to stay in the best possible shape. Those kinds of habits can last years after your time actually playing is over. For many people it is so ingrained to stay in shape that it has become an essential part of their life like sleeping or eating.
Speaking of eating, that is where a lot of the physical and medical problems in our society come from. Unhealthy, processed foods, too large of portions, excess sugar, and many other bad eating habits are killing us. Diabetes, blood pressure issues, heart and respiratory problems, and many other health concerns are all traced back to diet. Playing sports exposes kids to the dangers of these unhealthy foods, as well as how to eat properly.
It’s not just physical health that sports can help with, it is also mental health as well. People these days are getting much more discouraged and frustrated much easier. When they can’t achieve the things they want immediately, they just give up. Sports teach mindfulness, focus, and perseverance.
Being part of a team, with shared goals and aspirations teaches children so many valuable lessons and skills. In a world where people are becoming unhealthier by the day, it’s more important now that ever to make sure they get started on the right foot. At Schaumburg Seminoles baseball, we share these values and principles with your child from day one. Get in touch with us today to learn more about our program.
