Book Description:
The growth of children’s sports has reached almost unbelievable proportions. Using Little League Baseball as an example, there are around 3 million participants on almost 200,000 teams in more than 60 countries. In addition, more than 750,000 volunteers world-wide participate in this program.
Contrary to general belief, sports experience for children is not of recent origin. In fact, educators and philosophers as far back as the early Greeks felt that sports-oriented activities might be a welcome adjunct to the total education of children. For instance, over 2,300 years ago Plato suggested that all early education should be a sort of play and should develop around play situations.
In the 17th century, Locke, the English philosopher, felt that children should get plenty of exercise and learn to swim early in life. Rousseau, the notable French writer, held much the same opinion, believing that learning should develop from the enjoyable physical activities of childhood. These men, along with numerous others, influenced to some extent the path that children’s sports was to follow through ensuing decades.
This unique book presents a veritable treasure house of information about team sports for children which is now widely accepted as one of the most important teaching and healthy activities which all parents need to encourage in their children.
