Physically active children will never be passive when they grow up because they have a clear sense of purpose and then achieve their goals.

Group training will teach the child to interact with other children, become more sociable and get rid of various psychological barriers.
Sport has a positive impact not only on the children’s health but also on their mental abilities.
