Did you know that football boosts physical abilities in children?
Sports and activities have a wide range of positive benefits for children and adolescents. Participation in a team sport can introduce and foster the growth of the character of the youngest, as well as provide their physical and emotional well-being.
In addition to providing a fun experience for children, football has many benefits that contribute to their overall well-being and development. So, from Campus Experience Real Madrid Foundation we share some of the physical skills that are acquired through football:
- Running: in football training, children run a lot, which develops their lung capacity, increases their musculature, improves their immune system and their capacity and physical condition.
- Jump and Dodge: on the football field there are always other players who want to take the play away from you. Play requires children to jump, dodge, and change gears, improving agility, responsiveness, and decision-making.
- Throw and Catch: Every time the ball passes out of the area, the game is restarted with a kick and each player needs to learn how to do it. In addition, goalkeepers are a position that almost all children play at some point during their early years in the game, which improves motor development by enhancing their physical skills through learning..
- Following the movement of an object in flight: the ability to track the movement of an object, as in this case the balloon, makes children learn to estimate speed and distance, which are skills that are learned through constant practice and experience gained in training.
Football teaches and helps children acquire physical skills that help them develop properly and enhance their abilities in all aspects of their lives, such as coping with the ups and downs, anticipate opportunities and how to work with your peers to solve problems.
At Campus Experience Real Madrid Foundation we want to encourage more and more children to join this sport and be part of the game that connects them, through values, with millions of children around the world.
