Kids and Sports

Some people like their kids to play organized sports, others don't. I joined the new rankrz site today to see what it was all about. It is like my blog, only it is for everyone to rank their favorites (and worsts!) Here is the list I submitted today about my favorite reasons for kids to play sports:

1. Get their bodies moving

2. Learn to play by rules

3. Learn to be part of a team

4. Learn to listen to coach/become "coachable"

5. May develop a love for the game

6. May be something you can do as a family

7. Develop leadership abilities

8. Develop concentration and focus

9. Help build confidence

10. Gives them something constructive to do

Ironflower is dying to play soccer already. So I think I'll be discovering my own list sooner than I'd planned.
