According to the University of Illinois, playing sports can increase a child’s performance in the classroom.
Their research showed that engaging children in aerobic sports (running, soccer, jumping rope, etc.) helped students ages 8-11 perform better in both reading and math.On top of giving children a boost with their schoolwork, students who participate in sports also develop a strong understanding of work/life balance and teamwork, which carry over into their adult lives.
Parents are encouraged to promote participation in sports for their children in order to boost their abilities not only on the field, but in the classroom as well.
