Participation in sports can help keep teens out of trouble, though it’s not guaranteed. Teens who participate in sports tend to have less time to get into trouble. In better physical shape than their sedentary peers, they tend to pay more attention to nutrition than kids who don’t play sports. Teen athletes also tend to do better academically.
Sports require a lot of a teen’s time, as most teams practice or have competitions several days per week during the season. When she isn’t practicing or competing, she is most likely studying to stay eligible, eating or sleeping. When teens are busy doing positive things, they don’t have as much time to get into trouble. Teen athletes, particularly females, tend to have better self-esteem than their peers and typically make healthier choices to keep their bodies in better conditions, which includes abstaining from unhealthy foods, sex, drugs and alcohol.
Help us create more sports teams to keep youth out of trouble and on a better path in their lives.
LET A CHILD KNOW THAT THEY MATTER AND THEIR NOT LEFT OUT ALONE!
