As a Physical Therapy and a Sport Blogger, I encourage youth today to engage in Sports like Basketball because it enhanced your endurance and even improves the way you make decisions 
in dynamic environment. 

Also, Basketball requires you to perform series of movements like: running, jumping & quick lateral movements that trains your balance and coordination. Furthermore, basketball gives strength training and mental alertness.

For an early age, thru Basketball Camp Clinics develops independence and confidence, sense of achievement that enhanced their positive self-image. One can develop leadership skills and accept team responsibilities. 

In conclusion, joining this prestigious Jr.NBA /  WNBA, let your kid develops agility, flexibility and speed in becoming an efficient sport enthusiasts. A child can develop good sportmanship and team work that provides growth for spirit, mind and body to be a good role model in the World.
