Hello Sport lovers, in this spring mood we will talk about the top 5 soft skills sports can develop in your children.
This is so important thing to think on. In fact, it is the main purpose of Sports Discovery Camp. We believe that every child should be able to practice sports, wether they are awesome playing sports or they just want to have fun.
We believe it is important because sports are a great tool to develop skills that they will need to succeed in life. Not everyone will need to know how to score a perfect goal, but everyone on this planet needs these top 5 soft skills. Here they are:
Top 5 Soft Skills sports help to develop
Can you think about the gazillion problems (in your personal life and elsewhere) that could be avoided with better communication? To communicate properly is a huge asset. Sports can play an important role to develop this soft skill since team communication in team games are essential to strategize and succeed. At Sports Discovery Camp we have designed fun drills that will show how important communication is. For children, they will have fun. But they will also learn a lesson to have for life!
Self-confidence is so important for people, from childhood until they become adults. When children learn to excel in a sport and to learn what they are good at, it improves their self-confidence. An important note here is that they might not be good at some specific sport technique, they can be the best person to play with; they can be the person everyone else relies on, they can be the one that holds the team together, that helps the one who is not that good. At Sports Discovery Camp campers will have the opportunity to build the confidence they need. There is much more than the final score to realize how good you are in sports
We need leaders. We need them desperately. Society needs people who can inspire, who can look to others and find each person's strength and provide the opportunity for everyone to work together. A great leader makes everyone shine. Sports provides the perfect scenario to develop these skills. Not everyone is a natural leader. But everyone can learn how to act as a leader. We can’t wait to see leaders develop at Sports Discovery Camp!
Team sports are a fantastic tool to develop teamwork. Life lesson: you can’t do everything by yourself! We need each other, and we need to learn how to work together. We can think of so many examples of extraordinary players, but when they don’t know how to play as a team, it leads everyone to defeat. But average players acting as a team… it is so wonderful to see and certainly is a key to success!
We are different. Every one has strengths and weaknesses. It is not a matter of being better or worse. It is a matter of learning and respecting diversity. Sports teaches us to respect teammates, opponents, rules, coaches and officials. Learning this lesson, our campers will extend that behaviour to their family, teachers, and friends. In the future, they will respect workmates, bosses, and processes. A strong work ethic starts with respect!
Can you imagine a whole generation that has learned these top 5 soft skills? Soft skills that sports help to build, but that go way beyond playing sports.
This is Sports Discovery Camp essence: more than players, we build people!
