Professor Play is a service for kids and adults who look to achieve success, learn skills, or celebrate occasions with activity and fun. Professor Play experiences also help bridge the gap for kids to enter into recreational sports or for those who face challenges in engaging in recreational sports.
There are a a few key factors that can contribute to lack of participation and engagement in recreational sports.
(1) The stars. The players that demonstrate advanced skills in a sport often unknowingly intimidate those with little skill. They become unwilling or unable to try out of fear of being embarrassed.
(2) The role. New players think that they must be proficient at every position, skill and role in the game. This couldn't be further from the truth. A team consists of multiple players with different skill sets to achieve results. In basketball, for example, some players on a team are skilled in shooting, rebounding, ball handling and more. While others may have other skills or just some of them.
We must all embrace the abilities we have, channel growth and implement them within the game in a positive spirit with fun in mind. If we appreciate our strengths as assets to games, we can achieve great success.
All success starts with a passion to engage and have fun.
Let's keep that spirit in mind as we cross bridges and enter into new phases of life.
