Role of Teamwork in Sports

Almost everyone knows that the best way to inculcate teamwork is by working as a team and the field that provides us with the opportunity to do so is sports. Sports are of different types, but the sports that help kids inculcate teamwork are known as team sports. Some examples of team sports are – football, basketball, Kho – Kho, lacrosse, baseball, cricket, rugby and so many more. Teamwork is an important component of these sports and you can’t play without them. Sports such as basketball, football etc are known as team sports for the simple reason that you can’t play them until you play as a team. Working as a team helps you become selfless and see the good of the whole team instated of just yourself. It teaches you that you don’t have to do things alone, you don’t have to fight your problems alone for your whole team will be with you through thick or thin. It teaches you to always have each other’s back and also gives you a sense of security that your team is always there for you and will never leave you hanging. Teamwork is a quality that I believe everyone should have not just for others but for themselves, as when you are a part of a team you feel you are part of something bigger than yourself at that shoots up your Adlerian and you can achieve almost anything. That is why all parents to encourage their children to take up team sports such as – football, basketball, Kho – Kho, lacrosse, baseball, cricket, rugby etc. according to their child’s taste and liking.
