Team sport involves a group of people who work together to achieve a common goal. It involves the setting of goals, making decisions, communicating, handling conflict and solving problems in a positive and trusting environment.
It also requires patience and perseverance as the goals may not be met instantly.
When students play sports, they can experience a sense of achievement by winning and defeating their competitions. This can help to build their self-confidence and encourage them to strive to be the best they can be.
In addition to a strong sense of accomplishment, students can learn valuable lessons about teamwork and leadership through playing a sports team. Athletes will learn that their coaches and fellow teammates have a powerful influence on them, potentially as much or more than teachers and parents do.
They will also develop self-discipline, both physically and mentally, by learning to be calm under stress, and how to control their emotions. This is a vital life skill that can be applied to school, work, and home.
Athletes who are successful in their sports have one thing in common: they put in a lot of hard work. Talent plays a role in early years, but it is the hard workers that rise to the top.
