Does winning matter in youth sports? ›

Winning does build confidence especially when that winning represents a true accomplishment; (i.e., I've beaten a worthy opponent). However, winning against other teams or individuals of much lower skill levels normally does little to bolster self-confidence. Winning gains one access to rewards and special privileges.

Has there been a decline in youth sports? ›

Attrition in youth sports has been a problem for more than a decade. Children start sports to have fun, and they stay in sports if they are having fun. Parents may incorrectly perceive that the child primarily values winning. Adolescents drop out of sports due to injury, which can be from trauma or overuse.

What's the #1 reason kids drop out of sport by age 13? ›

Reason #1 - Sports Are No Longer Fun

Studies from the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) have found that of the 40 million youths who participate in organized sports each year, 70% will drop out before the age of 13! When asked why the number one reason given is that they just don't find it fun anymore.

At what age should kids start sports? ›

Around age 6 or 7, most kids develop the physical skills and attention span that sports need. They'll still need time to understand the rules of the game. When signing your young child up for sports, choose a league that emphasizes: learning in a fun, positive way.
