What is a Team Sport?

Team sport

Team sport is a sport in which the participants are part of a group that competes against other groups or individuals in order to win. A variety of sports are considered to be team sports, including swimming, rowing, sailing, dragon boat racing and track and field. These sports may involve scoring against an opposing team or they might not, such as in mountaineering where the relative difficulty of a walk or climb is measured rather than points scored.

Team sports are great for children as they teach them the value of hard work and the payoff that comes from being able to overcome setbacks. They also teach them to be unselfish and put the needs of the team before their own. This is a lesson that will serve them well in life when they have to deal with difficult colleagues and co-workers.

In team sports, children learn to communicate both verbally and non-verbally. From locker room discussion to communication of strategy, they have to be able to express their fears, hopes, dreams and disappointments to their teammates. They also have to be able to take criticism from their coaches and peers.

They will also have to solve problems on the fly and be able to formulate tactics quickly. This will improve their critical thinking skills as they’ll be able to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each opponent and come up with a game plan accordingly. These are skills that will carry over into all aspects of their lives from school and work to family relationships.
