Do Kids Get the Same Benefits from Sport Climbing?
Absolutely! There’s no reason why kids can’t enjoy the same mental health benefits as adults. In fact, the earlier they learn to rock climb, the sooner they can reap the rewards.
Here are some reasons why your kids should take up rock climbing today.
1. Physical Activity
We all know that kids have plenty of energy to burn – and rock climbing will give them a full body workout. Unlike sports that focus on speed, rock climbing will build skills like co-ordination, strength and flexibility. And you don’t have to worry about leaving any of the kids at home. There are climbing levels to suit all ages and abilities!
2. Improved Concentration
Rock climbing requires focus, which is why it’s perfect for children who have trouble concentrating. The goal of climbing a wall not only focuses their attention, but it gives them a sense of accomplishment. With ongoing practice, their focus will improve and you’ll see benefits in other aspects of their life.
Not all kids are suited to competitive sports. This is why rock climbing is a great alternative for shy or non-sporty kids. It provides physical activity without having to join a competitive sports team. While there is a social element to rock climbing, it’s always supportive and collaborative, and the only person they’ll compete against is themselves.
Contrary to what many people think, rock climbing is one of the safest sports you can take up if you follow the right protocol. It can be an excellent option for people with an adventurous spirit yet have physical conditions that make other forms of adventure dangerous. Mild forms of epilepsy and other central nervous system disorders are a great example of this. In fact, rock climbing can be a fantastic addition to holistic treatment programs for many conditions. There are harnesses and safety precautions that make climbing easy and risk-free. Children like to climb and explore at the best of times, so why not let them do it in a safe, fun and controlled environment?
5. Family Activity
While it can be challenging to motivate yourself and your family to exercise, rock climbing is a fun way to keep fit and bond as a family. You can build skills together and support each other’s climbing goals. It’s one of the few sports where people of different ages and abilities can participate and have fun.
