It is amazing to witness overseas Filipino parents, no matter how tight their daily schedules and workloads are they still managed to fetch and send their kids to the net-cornered basketball court in Marina Mall for a sports clinic they believe an avenue for their kids success.
Reasons may be obvious for those who finds that sports is an important aspect in one’s life to grow with and become a well-balance individual.
While kids have a lot to explore and have a wider range of opportunities to experience, it is just right to give them these chances at early stage.
With these beliefs and visions, some parents and basketball coaches unite to build STRIDE Abu Dhabi – a basketball clinic for kids. It was realized last year and saw a growing demands for little boys to practice and improve not only skills in the sports but personality development and better healthy lifestyle.
”We formed a clinic and named it Stride Abu Dhabi for kids to enhance their skills and techniques in basketball. We have integrated in our sessions with the value of sportsmanship, appreciation , teamwork, respect, intensity, discipline and effort”, said coach Nino Teorica – one of the coordinators of Stride.For Ace, he said ”As parent, I’ve noticed that my son has improved a lot since he joined the clinic. Not only his playing skills but in terms of discipline, self-confidence, leadership skills and he become more aware of healthy lifestyle”.
It is incredibly true that playing sports such as basketball helps children become successful because of leadership and teamwork. As a member of a team, they are forced to work with other kids and gives them the opportunity to become a leader and good leadership is a very valuable characteristic in life.
If a child develops good teamwork and leadership skills early on in life, he/she will be better off later in his/her life when it matters most. If they are active and in good shape, they are more likely to continue this.
