Sport is important for us because it improves our health as it keeps our mind and body fit, it also helps control health conditions, weight diseases and it promotes better sleep.

Getting involved in different types of sports, such as football, rugby, running, karate and boxing are very good for young people because it builds on teamwork and sportsmanship. When we go for a job, the employer will look for us to be good at communicating and working with others. Getting involved in sports at a young age will help us in the future!

Time

A sports club requires time and commitment. Getting involved in sports at a young age will make you develop two important skills, these are focus and time management. With commitment to your sports club you will get things done and accomplish your short and long term goals.

Mental health benefits

Doing sports can benefit your mental health. Getting involved in a physical activity triggers brain chemicals which results in making you feel happier and more relaxed. ]

Research has shown that doing a mix of aerobic and muscle strengthening activities is very helpful. Getting involved in this kind of activity three to five times a week for at least 30 minutes can provide these mental health benefits.

Physical activities improve the quality of sleep. Sleeping longer can improve your mental outlook the next day, as well as improving your mood.

If you regularly get some exercise it will eventually boost your confidence and improve your self esteem. Your self image will improve as well. You will look healthy and have good fitness at the same time. When people start participating in sports at a young age, they are far more likely to stay active as they grow older.
