What is a Team Sport?
Team sport is a form of competitive sports where members of a group work together toward a common goal. There are many different types of team sports, including American football, baseball, hockey, basketball, soccer and water polo.
Team sports offer a wide variety of pedagogical benefits, such as physical development, self-esteem and social skills. They also teach kids about commitment, training and achieving goals. Additionally, they help children learn to accept defeat and turn setbacks into learning opportunities.
A successful team requires players to communicate well and rely on each other. These are life-long skills that can benefit a child in all aspects of their lives. Having a good coach and a strong support system can make all the difference in a kid’s participation in a team sport. i9 Sports offers quality coaches and programs that are an ideal environment for children to learn these essential life skills.
i9 Sports also helps kids develop a sense of community through our sports leagues. Kids get the opportunity to meet new people and build friendships that last a lifetime.

Team sports are a great way to get kids active, which in turn promotes healthy living. Studies have shown that kids who participate in team sports have higher GPAs and are less likely to engage in risky behavior. Whether they are playing football or basketball, kids learn to be disciplined in their activities and understand that it takes practice to succeed.
