How has COVID-19 Affected Young Children’s Activity?
Football and sport in general, are very positive activities for children to take part in and there is much more than fitness that sport provides. Football is seen to have a positive impact on children’s mental health and well-being and children who play football regularly tend become more sociable and confident as a result as they’re required to work as a team. There are many skills within football that can be extremely valuable for children’s education.
Lockdown has been a very stressful and challenging time for a lot of families. A decrease in energy, health, fitness has led to a decline in activities. But, at SoccerDays, we are determined to get more and more children back playing and enjoying sports once again with our highly regarded football classes.
Getting your Child Back into Sports
If your child had to stay at home during the Lockdown period, we understand it may have been difficult for them to play football. However, there are lots of good reasons why they should get back into football as soon as possible. Toddler football classes (link to homepage) are a brilliant way for children to learn and develop new skills outside of school and football also helps with their health and wellbeing too. Here are some great reasons why your child should be getting back playing football.
Football is a very social sport in that its interactive nature involves working together as a team; this enables children to communicate better with others or work on solving problems within the group environment. Playing football gives children an opportunity to meet new people from different backgrounds and gain experience in getting along with a range of personalities.
Happiness and Self-Esteem
Football is an enjoyable sport that provides children with more than just fitness but happiness too as football helps build confidence in their abilities and learn to take on new challenges. As football offers an opportunity for your child to improve at something every day and see the benefits of their hard work on the pitch!
It has been proven that football can help improve your health as footballers are known to have lower body fat percentage’s and increased upper body strength than non-footballers. Football tends to require less equipment such as boots or shin pads which means the cost of playing football is very low and sustainable for families.
Our toddler football classes are a great way to get your child back into football, we provide classes for kids aged 2-7 year olds.
