It is widely accepted that children should be introduced to such skills and activities early in their life if we want them to develop a high proficiency, because late learners seldom acquire the proficiency that a child who started early can acquire. Kids who start early have very high chances of becoming true champions as compared to those who start late. Hence this championship to provide the young kids with the most important skills that they would need their entire life.
