Researchers found children reported better mental health as adults if they participated in team sports as children. 

Team sports help kids learn important social skills and how to interact with their peers more effectively. 


Kids learn how to lead and negotiate with others to reach a common goal.

If a child struggles with their emotions or interacting with others, sports can help create a safe environment to learn important social skills.
