In addition to the opportunity to get out of the house and socialize, homeschool sports and arts programs can offer long-term benefits by developing characteristics like leadership, self-confidence, perserverance, and self-esteem. Many organizations and businesses have opportunities specifically for homeschoolers, while others invite homeschoolers to participate in their regular programs.

With so many different routes to the top of the ‘mountain,’ kids get the opportunity to test out their problem solving skills, and learn how to negotiate the smoothest route to victory. Indoor rock climbing is a great puzzle to be solved, and kids have fun trying to figure out the best way to navigate the path to the top. Stretching little minds toward creative solutions is great practice for facing challenges on the path of life. Climbing walls require strength, flexibility, and coordination to successfully maneuver. Practicing the skills to ascend a rock climbing wall naturally builds a functional, core-driven skill set that helps aid in all other sports kids may want to play. From football to soccer, and tennis to swimming, core strength and flexibility are a valuable part of playing safe and injury free.
