Basketball is an active sport involving a lot of running, jumping, passing and shooting the ball. These repetitive movements and activity help kids build muscles. Shooting the ball into the hoop requires immense concentration, a good aim and great accuracy, all of which can be achieved through a lot of practice. Learning to target and building precision is a life-long skill that your child can benefit from. Just like every other sport, basketball has a number of rules to follow. And if not followed, that will lead to penalties. So it’s a good way for your child to appreciate the importance of following rules and developing competitive spirit while doing so. With so many benefits including building self confidence, basketball is a great sport for your kid to get involved in!
