As well as having a positive impact on a child's health, here are some other ways playing football can be beneficial: • SOCIAL BENEFITS – Children who start playing at a young age gain an opportunity to build friendships with their peers that can last years and beyond the pitch. • BETTER COMMUNICATION – Attaining success on the field requires teammates to communicate and work together as a team. These skills are just as vital at home and in school. • IMPROVED SELF-CONFIDENCE – Children develop confidence when they perform an activity they love. Participation in football can help them to develop a sense of belonging that is the foundation for growth in confidence. • BETTER ENERGY AND FOCUS – With increased exposure to the game, children adapt and build up their energy levels, ability, agility and stamina at a physical level. At a mental level, playing improves recognition, awareness and memory skills, while helping them to focus on something enjoyable.
