FITNESS & FOOTBALL

Your children may not be getting enough exercise!

We often think that our dedicated and driven children are getting more than enough exercise, children need at least 1 hour exercise every day. Unfortunately obese children are even less active than normal-weight children and inactivity may actually be a consequence of obesity.

There is a link between sports and performance in school, it has been scientifically demonstrated that physical exercise is correlated with mental acuity. MRI scans of the brains of children, who have improved their fitness, shows an increased volume in the temporal lobes, hippocampus as well as frontal lobes, the regions of the brain associated with cognitive functioning.

It is very important to keep active, especially during the winter months.  During these winter months we need to get creative and to make sure that kids get the exercise and physical activity that is so important.

There is no better way to build a solid and secure social circle than enrolling your children at First Touch football training, as sports are the ultimate common denominator, helping kids break the ice and encouraging them to develop friendships with other kids.  Playing football is not all about success on the field, it is also about learning lessons early in life.  Teamwork, goal setting and sportsmanship is all about learning to also deal with failure in a positive way.  Sports teaches kids these values and benefits.

Parents need to bear in mind that their little ones sometimes do not want to let go when you drop them off at the sports club, they might feel a bit anxious.  Entering a new environment filled with unfamiliar people and children can cause anxiety for children, as well as parents.

One thing to remember,  through the eyes of a toddler, the world can be an intimidating place for them and sometimes they do not want to let go when you drop them off at the sports club and might feel a bit anxious. Entering a new environment filled with unfamiliar people and children can cause anxiety for the child as well as the parents.  First Touch coaches are experienced and well qualified, they understand the anxiety that beginners might be experiencing on their first day.  Our coaches will give your child a warm welcome in a safe environment, making it fun as well as giving them the support which helps them to gain social skills at an early point in their lives.
