What Is Team Sport?

Team sport involves a group of people who work together to achieve an objective. It is a group activity in which members set goals, make decisions, communicate, handle conflict and solve problems in a positive and trusting environment.

There are many different types of team sports including hockey, basketball, football, cricket, volleyball, tennis, water polo and ultimate. Each sport requires a different level of teamwork from its participants.

Those who play team sports can also benefit from the mental benefits of physical fitness and competition. They are less likely to experience depression, anxiety and poor self-esteem, and may have improved education performance.

In addition, participating in team sport has been found to improve children’s social skills and confidence. It can deter negative behavior patterns and teach them to respect others.

Some of the most popular team sports include soccer, rugby, baseball, basketball and hockey. Other less traditional sports like rowing, cycling and bobsleigh are also considered team sports.

Cheerleading is another interesting team sport that combines athleticism, creativity, and cooperation. Typically involving five to 35 athletes, cheerleading is an exciting mix of agility, endurance, stability, strength (to catch and hold teammates), and concentration.
