When trying to join a game at recess, “the core features of autism – social, communication and behavior problems – can make joining a game of kickball at recess or playing tag with neighborhood kids a struggle” (Sarris). Joining a game of kickball is harder for them to join than a child without the disabilities. However, “by creating an autism friendly environment, the child will not associate exercise with stress, and will enjoy it more and continue to practice it” (Morin). By making a stress free environment, the children will want to practice and play the sport more often. When making a class, “one constructive physical habit to introduce and nurture in children with ASD is swimming and organized swim lessons, which will have multiple benefits for them” (Altenbach-Brennan).
Starting early in sports, there are some pro’s and con’s to think about. Some favorability to an early start these days are learning basic technique, strengthening muscles to help prevent injury, and to decide whether the child likes the sport. “Personally, I believe that you should start kids early because everyone needs to know the very basic technique to play any sport, also though it can’t be completely prevented stronger muscles lessen the chance of an injury” said Georgia Bolis. Late starts force your child to catch up with all the learning that they missed. With pro’s come con’s, some con’s too early sports are kids being forced to play, the potential for an injury, and the pressure to perform.
It’s true how many adults say that kids are easily impressionable and take lead from parents, guardians, or others around them. What kids are taught from a young age can shape how they view the world, act, respond, and even live. Surprisingly, giving a kid a participation trophy in sports is one of those things that many debates about because giving one to them will depend on how their life is shaped and what lessons they are taught. Not giving a kid a participation trophy in sports is more beneficial in teaching them the lessons of proper effort and winning or losing. It also shows how diminishing hard work which can lead to negative outcomes.
In the article named “Benefits of Teamwork In Sports.” the author, Wade Harle showed how learning to cooperate with others towards a certain goal in youth sports is what builds character, friendship and important life skills for players and also coaches. The friendships built throughout a team can last a lifetime for some players, and the journey of a team throughout a season is often stuck in your memory for a lengthy period of time. Also found in that article is, the teamwork in sports offer a way for kids to compete for something together. Although it is important to know that winning isn’t everything in sports, some competition can be great for people. Kids can translate the hard work they've put into their sport by working harder to be a better student or employee and a better person overall.
For youth sports programs, the main priority should be the kid athletes. These programs need to make sure that a child 's need is being taken care of and that their voices are being heard. Of course winning is a main topic in sports but, it also important to make sure that every child is enjoying their experience playing the sport. The first step for this that each child knows how to play the sport properly. Then from this a way that the kids can be more involved is to tell their coaches what drills/plays that they like do or don 't like and perhaps they can come up or suggest their own.
Outside of sports, learning how to cooperate and work together with others would be extremely important and would also help you in learning as group work or seeking help with homework from others would involve using these skills. Some students can also find their interest in sports and not just finding a sport fun and pursuing it, but maybe finding out that they have the capability to be a leader and may pursue leadership positions. Overall, I want to teach PE because it not only helps the kids learn routines and games to stay fit, but also improve communication, cooperation, teamwork, and social skills that would help them outside of sports as

The value of leadership is a great value to learn because it makes not only you a good player but it makes your teammates play better too.

A Competitive sport is very good at a young age to keep children on a good road to no drugs so it will reduce the drug use in the world and they will be healthy so go against obesity.

However competitive sports can also be bad because some children will experience permanent brain damage. So it can go both ways depending on the parent of the child or children. But schools should allow both competitive and noncompetitive sports in schools for example if they have competition that all students have to participate in.
Participating in a sport keeps kids off the street, encouraged them to make good grades, and gives them hope at a better future. Sports are very important to many teenagers. Playing a sport requires a kid to dedicate their time to bettering himself. If kids did not participate in a sport they would have to much free time on their hands, and start doing things they shouldn’t. Instead of running sprints, lifting weights, and preparing themselves for a long season they could be walking the streets, drinking, doing drugs, stealing, or just simply wasting their life away.
Adults should trust kids with these sports, so if they push themselves, let them do that so they get out of their comfort zone. Kids know when they need to stop and push themselves so they excel.
