SPORTS OUGHT TO DO IT created by semone mcelroy

MANY TIMES MOST MIDDLE SCHOOLERS MISS OUT ON THE OPPORTUNITY TO GET INVOLVED IN SPORTS AND ARE SHOWN TO HAVE SIGNS OF SEDENTARY LIFESTYLES

MOST MIDDLE SCHOOLERS SPEND THEIR TIME PLAYING VIDEO GAMES...

...OR WATCHING TV

SOLUTION: LYNCHBURG PARENTS OF OBESE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS BETWEEN THE AGES OF ELEVEN AND FOURTEEN SHOULD ENROLL THEIR CHILDREN IN SPORTS TO ENCOURAGE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

SPORTS CAN ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO GET ACTIVE AND LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF TIME THEY SPEND INSIDE

BECOMING ACTIVE THROUGH SPORTS CAN BUILD CHILDREN'S CONFIDENCE IN THEMSELVES WHICH CAN ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO BECOME EVEN MORE PHYSICALLY ACTIVE

WHILE CHILDREN ARE ENROLLED IN SPORTS AND BECOMING ACTIVE. SPORTS CAN ALSO HELP CHILDREN DEVELOP FRIENDSHIPS AND CAN ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO SPEND TIME WITH THEIR PEERS AND LESS TIME INSIDE HAVING A LACK OF PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
