Physical activity and learning to play sports have widely documented benefits for all, but particularly for children. Not only does exercise have a positive impact on children’s physical health, but the boost to their self-confidence, leadership skills and teamwork skills can help set children up for a life of healthy habits. Children who are active throughout their childhood are far more likely to grow into active adults.

Research also suggests that participating in sports and physical activity as a family has an overwhelmingly positive effect on children’s attitudes to sport and exercise, as well as on their physical health and levels of screen time.
