Question: Why do kids like to participate in sports?
Answer: Research will defend that the number one reason for both girls and boys is to have FUN. Kids have fun playing sports when they can interact with their friends. Texas Team's programming provides a safe learning environment in which several players can be instructed at once, creating a positive social climate that resembles more of a team sports atmosphere versus an individual.
Question: Why do kids stop participating in sport?
Answer: Children are more likely to quit playing if they have low perceptions of their competence. The Texas Team Coaching System has been modified to fit the needs of new learners but still contains the aspects in traditional golf. These modifications to equipment and games provide opportunities for any new learner to find initial success, and more likely to be coming back for more!.
