For the most part, kids get along with each other naturally. But what happens in the case that there are kids that might be a bit more shy or even alpha compared to other children? Helping children channel healthy bonds between their friends and peers is an important part of fostering a fun and memorable childhood. Activities such as sports are a great way to expose your children to practicing healthy friendships and social skills.
If you’re considering putting your child into sports or even a coach looking to find some creative ways to build team bonds, here are 5 steps to building an effective team and social space.

Establish leadership and a responsible person they can trust

Of course you can take additional steps as well as adjustments to these steps but the basis of these steps can help keep your team kept together.
