Some parents prefer not to let their children play sports, for fear that this additional commitment will distract them and, above all, lead them to spend less time in school and studies. In making this decision, every parent must put an important factor in the balance, namely that sport, in addition to promoting physical development and improving coordination and conditional skills, can also be good training for the mind of children. On a festive and emotional level, sport can represent a first training ground in life, which will allow your little ones to learn and understand the functioning of their body, its reactions, its limits, its potentials,  to gain greater knowledge and awareness of themselves.  And pushing them, during their growth journey, to cultivate the desire to put themselves to the test and test the new skills acquired. At the same time, it will be a first opportunity for them to compare themselves with others and socialize, which will allow them to meet new people.
