According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, regular physical activity in childhood and adolescence improves strength and endurance, helps build healthy bones and muscles, helps control weight, reduces anxiety and stress, increases self-esteem, and may improve blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
However, around 70 percent of kids in the United States stop playing organized sports by the age of 13 because “it’s just not fun anymore,” according to a poll from the National Alliance for Youth Sports.
By age 14, only 1 in 10 girls are doing enough physical activity to benefit their health compared with roughly twice the number of boys of the same age.*
