Life Lessons From Youth Sports

Athletic competition is healthy for children. Ken Miyamoto writes, “Children learn more from their 'failures,' losses, and shortcomings than they ever will from success.” It is important to remember youth sports aren’t all about winning. They give youth an avenue to grow and learn, work hard and build confidence. Miyamoto shared a great list of all of the life lessons kids learn through sports in the Huffington Post parents section:

  • Working in a team atmosphere
  • Handling individual pressure with everything on your shoulders
  • Handling rejection
  • Handling loss
  • Handling the pressure of winning
  • Handling the pressure of breaking that winning record
  • Handling the pressure of breaking that losing streak
  • Learning how to take direction from coaches
  • Learning how to apply what you have learned
  • Learning how to focus on any given task at hand
  • Learning about friendship and thinking of others as you cheer them on
  • Learning how to appreciate others supporting you and cheering YOU on
  • Integrity
  • Perseverance
  • Self Control
  • Indomitable Spirit
  • Courtesy
