International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP) is celebrated on 6th April as a way to recognise the positive effect of sports on people and communities around the world. When we play sports, we learn some important skills like, teamwork – working well with others, communicating effectively, and being a good leader. That is why today, on this occasion, we are going to explore how to work together as a team.
Whether you like playing team sport or not, you need to know how to be a team player and work with others as a team. Here are some simple tips that will help you become a better team player.
Remember that working together as a team will take some time initially. Be prepared to feel overwhelmed. The only way to become a better team member is via practise. Keep a positive attitude towards the members of your team and ask for help whenever you need it. Do keep in mind that your parents and teachers are there to help you out.
So, why not learn/ practice teamwork by playing team sports with your family and friends? This can be a great way not only learn while having fun, but also to honour the spirit of International Day of Sport for Development and Peace (IDSDP).
