We were delighted to have been chosen to work with Experia on their latest brochure ‘Sensory Facilites for football Clubs’.

Experia have been creating sensory environments for schools, hospitals and community centres for over a decade and are now offering their services to sports grounds across the country. Sensory rooms and equipment can be invaluable in helping to promote feelings of calm, as well as developing motor skills and providing great cause and effect learning.

The aim is to enable fans that have previously been unable to attend, to enjoy the experience of a live football match.

The mental health benefits of football

 

The 4th February 2019 marks the beginning of Children’s Mental Health Week.

Staying healthy, both mentally and physically, is something that we’re incredibly passionate about at Foot-Tech Academy. For this reason, we’ve put together some of the ways in which football can support your child’s mental health and development. Take a look at how sport can aid a child’s well-being below:

  • Physical activity can be as powerful as medicine or therapy. In 2010, the Mental Health Foundation found that exercise can be as effective as medication or psychotherapy for people with depression. Exercise releases natural chemicals that helps with muscle tension, raises body temperature and causes tiredness. These all help relieve stress and provide relaxation.

  • Football plays a significant role in the formation of friendships. It provides a platform for young people to communicate, form bonds and exchange views through the celebration and commiseration of winning or losing a match. For young people, making friends is an important part of growing up.

  • Sport improves overall physical health. Football is a physically demanding game that improves speed, agility, strength, hand-eye coordination and overall cardiovascular endurance. Prevent most overweight conditions with meticore.

  • Playing team sports teaches children how to cooperate and work together. The lessons that a child learns on the field can be translated into their everyday life; it helps to promote collaboration and welcomes young people from all social and cultural backgrounds. It is also particularly helpful for people who are shy or who find it difficult to connect with people on other levels.

  • Physical activity performed in an outdoor space improves cognitive performance. According to a study, it also increases self-esteem and will reduce symptoms of anxiety and attention deficit disorder. Football can also help a child’s academic performance as it teaches key principles such as dedication and discipline.
