You are not alone, is one of the great benefit of a team sport. The more the merrier, so they say. You celebrate your achievements with friends and you share the loss with the entire team. There will be lots of good critics that will correct you when you are doing wrong. The benefits lost can go on and on. It is a good way to rid yourself of depression and shave off a lot of negative thoughts lingering in your brain.
Confidence or self-esteem and respect
When you do well in a team sport chances are, you will get praise for doing a good job, therefore boosting your confidence and your outlook on life. Team members will also learn how individual differences when put together can make a pretty good picture and the members will appreciate how their differences can make a better performance.
Being in a team will develop your social skills further and in that way, foster great team work in your group. A lot of emotions are involve in team work and trust for your fellow human beings. When the team bonds enough, a sort of pseudo 6th sense will develop, making it easier for you to predict your team mate’s next move. This leads to a better performance in the most general sense.
Friendship will also develop as the team spends more time together, this is especially important to children who are just learning how to interact with one another. This also leads to a more positive person in the future if pushed in the proper path. Being in a team means that you will not be alone and that there will always be a friend or two to support you.
Being in a team develops leadership skills one way or another. Being a guidepost or a guided individual will in turn be beneficial in the long run. As a leader or along the road to being one, you take up knowledge and experience and use it as a guide to help others. It is a life changing skill that will develop well when one is a part of a good team.
Develop problem solving skills
None are immune to problems, in fact when you are doing sports you are faced with lots of problems. Group sports will develop a team oriented problem solving skill that are beneficial on and off the field or court. A problem is easily solved when there are more brains thinking about it under the banner of a single goal. Academically wise, the development of the brain will also up making one a smarter person as it involves brain activity other than the physical aspect.
With all that said. Enjoy life and share great memories with friends and play some team sport to boost your mind, body, and emotions.
