Sport, A Shortcut To Success – Danielle Brown – Family Session

Family Session

There is a sport out there for everyone, whether we want to be the best in the world, go on an adventure, make new friends, pursue a career as a coach, referee, or scientist, learn a new skill, or stay fit and healthy. Finding a sport that brings us joy has the power to change our lives, and helps us feel happier, healthier and achieve success – both on the sports field and off it.

We all know that sport comes with oodles of benefits, but sometimes it stops being fun. As young people grow older they face pressures from lots of different directions, and can often struggle with a lack of support from their peers, families, communities or schools. Even though they know they should do sport it can be hard to motivate themselves to get moving.

Developing confidence in their own bodies, abilities and social connections is key to changing this, giving the tools to break through the barriers in their path.
