Why should kids wrestle? Wrestling is one of the oldest sports of all time, which proves its durability and function in the course of a person’s life. Even young kids can get in on wrestling, and there are so many benefits to incorporating wrestling into the life of your child.
Take a look at just some of the many reasons wrestling builds kids up and teaches them great life lessons:
- Gives kids an outlet for their energy – we all know kids can be plenty energetic, and wrestling, even more than other sports, allows for that energy to have a focused outlet
- Improves development – Wrestling uses every part of the body, meaning that as kids grow and mature, they’ll remain lean and fit with the proper build up of muscle.
- Teaches how to handle adversity – Depending on the level at which they’re practicing or competing, wrestling can teach kids how to win, as well as how to lose gracefully.
- Builds confidence – As with most sports, wrestling helps build the confidence of participants, no matter whether they win or lose. As they become more proficient in wrestling, their confidence grows, which spreads to other aspects of their lives.
- Helps kids become accountable – Because wrestling isn’t a team sport, kids learn to rely on themselves in order to be great. Wins and losses are their own.
- It’s fun – This is an important piece of wrestling! Having fun is one thing we can all agree kids should be doing, and wrestling, plus the competition it provides, is very fun!
