WHY PLAY SPORTS?
Keeping fit is the benefit that most people think of most when it comes to sports. Social and mental skills and teamwork also rate highly. Two thirds of parents even say sports keep children out of mischief!
Survey’s have revealed that while parents are understandably concerned about injuries, 92 per cent feel that the benefits of children playing sport far outweigh these risks.
The results come at a time when inactivity is reported to be responsible for more deaths than obesity and that eliminating inactivity in many countries would cut mortality rates by nearly 7.5 per cent.
At the same time recent research has suggested that teachers believe 39 per cent of children across countries like the UK leave primary school with a negative attitude towards being physically active and almost one in four (23 per cent) children believe video games to be a form of exercise.
At the same time, there have also been questions raised recently regarding the safety of sport for children and specifically about player welfare and safety in in games like rugby at all levels of the game.
Regardless of this, more than 80 per cent of parents surveyed say that they have never prevented their children from participating in an activity due to the risk of injury and even for a contact sports like rugby, the vast majority of parents are still happy for their kids to play.
