Benefits of playing in team sports for kids

There are a huge amount of benefits involved when it comes to encouraging kids to take part in team sports. Vital life skills can be learnt on the hockey field!

Hockey encourages resilience, determination, communication and problem-solving. It’s a great way for kids to develop close, life-long bonds with children who have similar interests as they do – as well as some who are completely different!

Sunshine Coast hockey is an excellent choice to help your children develop a love of healthy competition and activity. There are strict guidelines involving player (and parent) behaviour and respect – this is a positive environment where poor behaviour is simply not tolerated.

It’s not just bigger kids who can play sports, either. We’ve also found some awesome toddler-friendly sports you can start this year with your little ones!
