    Why KidSport? I love being a part of the KidSport team because I believe in the value of play! Not only is playing sports amazing for kids health, but I know from experience that it can transform a child's confidence and help them perform better in school, make friends and will eventually help them be more employable adults. Learning how to be a part of a team, how to work hard and how to be gracious in winning and losing are skills that are invaluable and in my opinion, the easiest way to learn them is through playing sports, regardless of the level.
