Seagoville Youth Sports Association Baseball And Softball Sign-ups

The Seagoville Youth Sports Association (SYSA) will be conducting Baseball and Softball Sign-Ups every Saturday in February at 500 May Road.

The sign-ups will be held from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM and parents are encouraged to get their kids participating in physical fitness activities.

According to Michigan State University Extension these are the top life skills children learn while participating in a sport:

• Social Skills
The social aspect of sports might be what entices children to play in the first place. Youth sports participation enables children to spend time with friends in a safe environment and obtain social skills that are likely to last a lifetime. Aside from bonding with peers, youth learn to solve conflicts effectively, reach common goals and learn to be more assertive, all while getting physical fitness. A child’s communication skills also are enhanced after playing a sport, giving a child needed life skills.

• Competitive Skills
Although there is such a thing as being too competitive, it’s important for a child to understand the positive aspects of competition. Adults are surrounded by competition, from getting a job to moving up in the work force, and when children learn the basics of competition early, they have a better chance of succeeding. Sports participation helps children cope with competition in a friendly environment. Working to achieve a goal or being part of a team will help youth gain healthy competitive skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.

• Sportsmanship
Sportsmanlike behavior is a lesson that children obtain from playing sports. Children learn to positively handle both the winning and losing aspect of playing a sport, and good sportsmanship is a trait that carries over from childhood to adulthood. Athletes who focus on mastering personal improvement have a good chance on later becoming good citizens and hard workers. Good sports tend to better cooperate with others and make moral decisions instead of being ego-oriented individuals who behave badly, according to Education World, an online resource for educators.

• Leadership Abilities
Achieving leadership skills is a life lesson learned when children participate in sports. Obtaining leadership qualities that range from being a good character, to respecting others, to being task oriented can be accomplished in both team and individual sports. A solid support system, such as a strong parental involvement and effective coaching can help mold a child into being a leader now, and later in life.

  1. I have a 5 yr old son that I have signed him up to play t-ball for Mesquite and they have talked me in to being a manager and we had our full team until I had to release one of the coaches for his and his wife’s very inappropriate violent behavior and he formed his own team and has taken several players and I’m not getting any cooperation from the board and am very dissatisfied with Mesquite. I am looking for another league to place my child in. I also have another friend with a son that is five and is looking also. My number is 214-791-1142.
