Organized Sporting Activities Help Children Improve Cognitive Skills
Organized extracurricular sport activities for children help them develop and improve cognitive skills, such as greater concentration capacity, that can in turn greatly help them in the classroom, according to researchers from the Université de Montréal. “We worked with information provided by parents and teachers to compare kindergarteners’ activities with their classroom engagement as they grew up,” said the study’s lead researcher. “By time they reached the fourth grade, kids who played structured sports were identifiably better at following instructions and remaining focused in the classroom. There is something specific to the sporting environment – perhaps the unique sense of belonging to a team to a special group with a common goal – that appears to help kids understand the importance of respecting the rules and honoring responsibilities.” To read more about this study, click here.
