Top 5 Reasons kids play sport

You want your child to be active and to have fun.  Research shows that's exactly what they want, too.

A Michigan State University study asked boys and girls aged 10 to 12 why they played sports.  Here are the top five reasons they gave:

1.  To have fun

2.  To do something I'm good at

3.  To improve my skills

4.  To stay in shape

5.  To get exercise

Surprise, "winning" didn't even make the top ten reasons.

Study after study comes up with the same #1 result.

Kids play sports for the fun of it!​​​​​​​
