Sport Manitoba’s #PlayMoreBeMore campaign is all about helping Manitobans, especially parents, learn about the dangers of specializing in one sport at a young age and the many benefits of kids playing multiple sports.
Playing a variety of sports will help young athletes:
1) Excel in their chosen sport
2) Benefit their overall athleticism
3) Avoid overuse injuries that come with repeatedly doing the same sport over and over for several years
4) Avoid burnout
5) Have fun and walk away with a positive and enjoyable experience in sport and physical activity.
