Physical Education is crucial in the development of Children for many reasons - Sports develop fine motor skills, help to teach values and morals, good behavior, the movement helps the children concentrate during classes as well as enhancing their overall behavior and mood. Sports also happen to offer so much value to people lives as it builds community and brings different cultures together in unity as they support their national team. It offers a platform for young athletes to reach huge goals and achieve greatness. It is a platform for others to express themselves and even find a sense of identity.  We can go on and on listing the advantages of Sport - but in this case, volunteers can use Sports Coaching as an opportunity to connect with children and communities through a common intesrest, to speak a universal language and unite despite the obvious differences.
