Encourage your kids to play team sports

Team sports foster cooperation, camaraderie and commitment. Encourage your child to play a sport they are interested in.

  • Encourage enjoyment of sport, not winning
  • Don’t be an ugly parent at the kids events
  • Don’t add to their performance pressure but encourage them to just do their best
  • Accept the fact that sporting activities are not without some risk
