What is Character?

Character can be defined as your moral safe or the morals you live your life by. Building character is an essential part of childhood as this is where their moral structure forms and the building blocks for habits, thoughts, and motives are formed.

Developing Team Spirit

Sports and being on teams are important ways to learn how to develop team spirit. Team spirit is the feeling that brings your closer to your team to work well together and cooperate in a shared goal, usually winning a match, a tournament, or getting through a particularly grueling training session. The confidence that a team brings can help you build your character as you know that your team will always have your back.

Learning Healthy Competition

Learning to engage in healthy competition is another great way to build character. Competition doesn’t only happen in sports settings, but sports can be a great way to learn how to engage in a healthy competition where teammates and even rivals encourage others to do better and strive for higher marks.

Growing Resilience

Lastly, playing sports is a great way to build resilience. Team sports and sports, in general, have a thing in common, you won’t win all the time. So learning how to overcome adversity, lean on your teammates, and focus on getting better can be a healthy way to grow your resilience and build character.

Sports and exercise are great ways for children to build character. If you’re looking to enroll your child in an exercise program designed especially for children, give Stretch-n-Grow in Winston-Salem, NC, a call at (336) 287-1193 for information on their excellent programs.
