Sports For Kids: Let Your Child Play  

It’s Time To Let Your Child Play  

Sports for kids

“Play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold”- Joseph Chilton Pearce

Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence theory states that there are a group of people who are “body smart” and have a gift for excelling in sports. If your child is a craftsman master (displaying kinesthetic intelligence), it’s time to take their interests in sports and activities to the next level.

There are numerous benefits to playing sports such as an improved fitness, alertness, resilience, and teamwork. There is also no shortage of activities or sports that can afford these benefits for the development of your child. Whether your child is a hardcore athlete or a fun lover, here are some activities that your child will enjoy:

Sports for the hardcore athletes: 

Everyone knows that martial artists endure one of the toughest training in the sports scene. If your child loves high-energy activities, consider signing them up for mixed martial arts or taekwondo classes where they develop resilience and strength. They will also learn to mentally prepare themselves for challenges and pull themselves together for a fight.

Recommended learning center: INDUK Taekwondo

Classes at INDUK Taekwondo are deliberately kept small with low student to teacher ratios to ensure that every child has the required attention to make training safe and fun. The programmes at INDUK are thoughtfully crafted to cater to students of varying age groups and skill levels starting from toddlers as young as 2.5 years old. Other than imparting the skills of the martial art form, INDUK also aims to inspire its students to develop a good sense of self-discipline & social graciousness.

Sports for the fun lovers:

Have fun with your kids with a variety of activities that develop their motor skills, coordination and agility. These are key to a child’s growth, and can also reap numerous benefits to their emotional and mental strength in the long run.

Recommended learning center: MyGym

Established in the US in 1983, MyGym was built by a group of passionate professionals in child development. It has since expanded globally, launching its first outlet in Singapore in 2005. MyGym offers a series of fun and rewarding programmes for babies, toddlers and children. You can start your child on an active lifestyle as soon as they turn 4 months old. Children aged 2 and below will be accompanied by their parents, who can play an active role in improving the motor coordination of their kids during the activities.

Recommended learning centre: Ready Steady Go Kids

Ready Steady Go Kids came to Singapore in 2012 as its first international franchise. Originating in Australia, the programme introduces children as young as 1.5 years old to physical activities. These activities help them to develop motor skills and spatial awareness. Its highly effective programmes have been implemented in more than 50 preschools around Singapore.

Children who exercise grow into healthier adults

Research shows that children who engage in enough physical activity to improve their cardiorespiratory abilities, tend to grow into healthier adults. The activities improve the structure and function of the brain, especially for the memory. With this, parents should enroll their children for sports activities to nurture a healthy mind, body and soul.
