Basketball is a high-intensity sport that teaches kids of every age coordination, concentration, and cooperation. The physical benefits of basketball are numerous, including: increased endurance, motor control, balance, and agility. Performing drills on and off the court with a basketball increases your child’s confidence, as he or she gets better with practice. Basketball can also increase your child’s social skills because the game requires that your child learns how to work as part of a team, communicate effectively, and pay attention to others.
