Children aged 3 to 12 are one of the most important age groups requiring exercise, because it is much more difficult to compensate for overweight children in this age range than overweight during adolescence and after. Therefore, many children’s health control centers in the United States have considered appropriate exercise for children as necessary and mandatory. In addition to preventing obesity, sports and physical activities promote health, teach social behaviors, and also regulates energy.
Many parents think they have hyperactive children. Children from the age of 3 onwards, who are capable of understanding the surrounding environment and learning commands, have a surplus of energy that needs to be discharged. But the main question of the way, manner, quality and activity through which energy is consumed, is begged by many parents. If you are one of this group of parents and you care about your child’s health and well-being, then stay with us to introduce you to suitable sports for children between the ages of 3 and 12.
The importance of sports for children, in the words of Michelle M. Miller, a leading coach in children’s sports in America: “The importance of physical activity for children is undeniable, and definitely parents who deprive their children of at least one type of sport have ignored and even risked the development and health of their children.”
From gentle warm-up activities, such as warming up to intense sports like gymnastics, organized sports can benefit children in 5 key areas including physical, emotional, social and moral issues.
Most parents think about starting an organized sport for their children when they start school or reach puberty, meaning from 6 to 14 years old! Parents, not only have to encourage children in this age range to continue a type of sport, they should also provide them with a foundation for fitness from a young age.
