Benefits of Team Sports

Team High-Fiving
May 9, 2017

We all know the health benefits of playing on a sports team, but did you know that being a team player also benefits you in the game of life? Here’s a list of some of the cool stuff that happens when you join a team:

Build Confidence
Reaching a goal on the playing field provides the motivation you need to reach even greater personal goals.

Make Friends
Your teammates are the ones right by your side, sharing with you both the wins and the losses. This creates long lasting bonds and built-in support to help you tackle challenges both on and off the court.

Learn to Compromise
Sometimes, decisions will not always go your way, but that’s completely okay! Teams teach you how to compromise, pick your battles and understand differing opinions.

Stay Motivated
When an entire team depends on you, you’re less likely to miss a practice or game. Keeping up with your teammates keeps you motivated, even when you feel like throwing in the towel.
