Benefits & Ethos
Why is Multi-Sports for children better than specialising in one sport?
Studies show that children suffer FEWER OVER USE INJURIES, whilst playing different sports. Growing bodies can become over stressed by repetition leading to injuries. Children coached in multi sports can lead to better muscle, motor and skill development. Promoting general athleticism, balance, speed and agility.
There is LESS OPPORTUNITY FOR EMOTIONAL BURN OUT. Children focussing so much time only on one sport risk tiring of sport altogether. Having a variety of experiences keeps things interesting. SPORTS SKILLS TRANSFER from one sport into another - ball tracking, hand to eye co-ordination, quickness, running, jumping, agility and throwing. EXPOSURE TO DIFFERENT ROLES - being a team player in e.g. Basketball, is a different experience to being a team player in hockey, or football.
Children learn different supporting roles, communication and team play. NOT PUTTING ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET - playing only one sport limits your options. An injury, a bad experience, a reduced role in a more competitive team can bring an abrupt end to an athletic career.
Sports Academy UK is committed to the concept of 'Training for Life' through encouraging and developing young people of all abilities in a wide variety of sporting activities.
Sports Academy UK also aids children's personal development in areas of self confidence, communication skills, teamwork and appreciation of how to win and lose. Importantly your child does not need to be sporty to enjoy and benefit from the MultiSports programme.
Our experience is that our students flourish in an active, fun and safe environment. At Sports Academy UK, we believe that participation is the key. We do not claim to turn your child into an elite athlete but we will develop them, harvesting potential no matter how great or small. We encourage competition in a healthy manner, however it's not all about winning and it's not selective.
Participators not spectators – that’s our young people at Sports Academy UK.
