Here are the five lessons that sports teach kids.
“Sports are just like this microcosm of life… a lesson that might take years to learn in regular life, you might learn in a single practice as you play a sport.”
Professional Basketball player, Eric Mika, recently made that observation on our show. The lessons you learn for sports are really the lessons you learn for life. Our interview with Eric made us want to explore the positive effects sports have on children. By doing so, we hope to help parents feel good about the time kids spend away at practice and games.
