A balanced attitude towards the highs and lows which a child will experience through participation in sport is essential for the child to experience the many benefits therein.

Athletically gifted children who have difficulty dealing with success and failure often drop out of sport altogether. The same happens to children who may find themselves out fo their depth among their peers. They label themselves as "not sporty", create a disempowering association and drop out.

As educators, we must try our best to coach children through the numerous pitfalls which may result in children missing the opportunity to experience achievement within the limits of their body's physical capabilities.
