Choosing the right sports in school can be a difficult task for your child. There are so many options to choose from and children often end up trying the wrong one and losing interest in sports ultimately. It is important to pick the right sports to be physically active and mentally focused. Here are some of the ways you can help your daughter zero in on her ideal sport.
Why Do Schools Mandate Sports And Physical Education?
Schools mandate sports as one of the most effective girls’ empowerment group activities. There are multiple benefits of playing sports including physical fitness and confidence building. Sports help children to be active and focused on their goals. When a girl plays sports regularly, she is less likely to fall ill. Sports also keep obesity away and keep the heart healthy.
Physically fit kids gradually develop higher self-esteem and confidence. When sport is a hobby, there is no chance a child will get bored. They also gain confidence, learn teamwork skills, and understand life skills and strategies.
Types Of Sports To Choose From
Schools have many sports to choose from. Children are allowed to choose one or more than one to practise as their hobby. They are also encouraged to take part in inter school or intra school sports competitions. Schools also conduct girls’ empowerment workshops in Kolkata and other cities so that it becomes easy for them and their parents to choose the best-suited sports.
Some of the most preferred sports and physical activities are:
Football: One of the finest and most interesting sports is football. The game teaches teamwork, coordination and communication. The strategies of the game also keep players on their toes making them sharp and focused throughout the game.
Cricket: In India, cricket is a “religion.” The gentlemen’s game is no longer confined to only men. It has also been immensely popular among ladies who not only watch the game but also take it up as a sport. Let your daughter play the game on the ground to learn how to be patient and organised.
Basketball: Basketball is a game that teaches hand-eye coordination, teamwork and improves reflex action. Many schools have special basketball courts for the students to play the game with proper guidance and regulations.
Karate: Karate is a Japanese martial art perfect to empower the child physically. They learn how to defend themselves and at the same time how to be mentally and physically strong.
Yoga: Yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that helps children connect to their inner selves. Their body posture improves, and so do their flexibility and physical tolerance. It also helps in the detoxification of the body and mind.
Skating: Skating helps children to learn how to balance. It is a unique sport that helps in focussing their body and controlling manoeuvrability and speed.
