25 million American children can not be wrong Even though at least 20 million of these kids will suffer injury by the age of 15 only 10 of the injuries are serious enough to require more than one visit to the doctor I have been playing baseball as well as other organized sports for almost 15 years and in my opinion sports develop friendship and self-esteem I believe that coaches should take a how-to class on what a coach should and should not do Injuries occur for three main reasons First because parents push their children past their natural ability level thus it causes injury to the over worked body parts Second an accident occurs such as a turned ankle or a ball taking a bad bounce and hitting a player The third and most common reason a coach teaches a player the wrong way to perform specific task For example when I was 12 years old my baseball coach taught me the wrong way to throw a curve ball After repeatedly throwing the wrong way I tore a ligament in my right elbow If my coach at that time would have taken some kind of class he would have known the proper way to teach the technique Nevertheless I feel that sports should greatly benefit a childs self-esteem Competition also builds self-esteem because children grow both emotionally and physically and sports help to develop a positive view of both themselves and their athletic skills As long as children feel that they are beneficial to the team they are developing self-esteem because they see their personal role in the team as important to the whole cause If a child is not athletically gifted he can always take up a more non-competitive sport such as jogging or weight-training This will also build self-esteem because the child can see his improvement and relate to others at the same time Michelli and Jenkins As well as building self-esteem
