This one’s for you people who use the excuse “I can’t decide” so you don’t have to do a sport. Oh, grow up! Your parents shouldn’t be choosing a sport for you any more than they should be choosing your friends.

Most people tend to lean toward individual or team sports. This can spark some pretty crazy arguments (I know from experience). But let’s seriously consider the pros and cons of both in an effort to help you decide once and for all which one is better.

Team Sports?

Pros:

  • Teach team building and social development skills
  • Encourage trust (In this crazy, identity theft world. Hmm. Maybe this should be a con.)
  • Not-so-fantastic players can learn and develop from others on their team
  • SQUAD GOALS!!! (This deserves an entire paragraph.)

Cons:

  • You can blame any problems on someone else on your team.
  • Kids might feel bullied by others on the team.
  • Fights might break out, which could cause injuries.
  • If you’ve got a flake, and they don’t come for a game, the whole team suffers.

Or Individual Sports?

Pros

  • Problems can’t be blamed on other people.
  • You compete with yourself, which encourages goal setting.
  • Individual sports teach skills like discipline and self reliance.
  • There are no worries about other people messing up.

Cons

  • There is no support team.
  • If you make make a mistake, there’s no one to hide behind.
  • If you’re self taught, you could make mistakes in technique, causing injury.
  • If no one is pushing you, it may get hard to find motivation.

Did this solve anything for you? Hopefully, if you were in the middle, this list helped you decide. Now you can be a die-hard team player and take all the credit every time you win!
