The sooner a child begins to mix physical activity with mental challenges, the better. Skills are acquired by learning progressions. In life goals are achieved by taking small steps, learning to believe in oneself by conquering a new skill teaches confidence, determination, and perseverance. The ability to have a sustained commitment to long term goals is as important as talent, strength, or intelligence to a child’s level of success in life.
