Benefits of sport for children

Among the main benefits are the improvement of cardiovascular capacity, increased resistance and strengthening of muscles. In addition, sport also brings mental benefits such as reducing stress and anxiety, as well as improving self-esteem and self-confidence.

But not only that. Through sport, children learn important values ​​such as teamwork, discipline, respect, leadership and overcoming challenges.

Sport for children, families and community.

Practicing sports is not only beneficial for children, but also for their families. Sport can be a way to strengthen the bond between parents and children, encouraging participation in collective activities and promoting interaction between different groups. In addition, sport can be a way of uniting the family around a common goal, promoting coexistence and well-being.
