Being on a sports team promotes feelings of community between children, making it easier for them to become friends. The Social Their time management skills will improve. Children are born with the instinct to lead others. This is apparent in early childhood but, being a leader of a team, an individual must consider the wants and opinions of their teammates in order for the team to work together. The children who pursue leadership learn about the proper methods of conflict management. Adopting leadership roles at a young age helps a child form high-achieving habits right away. Children enjoy sports and view them as rewarding. In most households, parents ask that their children put their responsibilities first, which is where time management comes in. Children learn to recognize and manage their priorities first so that they have time for athletic practices and competitions. If a child is taught how to deal with differences and recognizes that everyone makes mistakes, chances are, they’ll be able to use that skill in real life and effectively minimize mistakes or bad decisions as well as recover from failures. Their network of friends will expand. Their relationships with adults will improve. Outside of sports, a child's experiences with adults include their parents, relatives and teachers. When playing a sport, their coaches become their guides to success. These relationships teach them about overall mature relationships and the importancethat they play in growing up. They will learn how to handle adversity. The amount of interaction a child athlete is exposed to, whether it's with adults or other children, enhances their social skills and aids in their maturing and developmental processes. Their communication skills will improve. They will be encouraged to take on leadership roles. If a child
