Life Skills through Kidzhoops

We have always believed “sports build character”, which can help the youth learn life skills. But sports can also be associated with negative issues like aggression, adults showing improper behavior, alcohol and drugs. On the positive side, we do believe sport participation can improve self-esteem, social skills, problem solving, goal attainment and emotional regulation just to name a few.

 

Learning life skills start with identifying hopes and dreams and then setting appropriate goals to achieve those dreams. They do not happen just by playing sports. Researchers of sports always say, “life skills are taught, not caught.”

We grown-ups - parents, guardians, coaches, volunteers and organizers - hold a big responsibility in developing the life skills of our youth that will enable them to succeed in the environments we live. The emotion-laden conditions every KidzHoops game presents is challenging, but it is in those situations…those teachable moments where 'You and I' can seize the opportunity and use deliberate methods and support to teach not only our children but also ourselves as peers - LIFE SKILLS.

Though the saying “sport builds character” may not be all true, the balance of evidence shows KidzHoops has ‘the potential’ to build character, promote the positive effects of physical fitness and exercise.

Together, we can contribute to their growth and guide the future not only for our own but also the needs of the youth in general.
