hi this is my eassy !

Children should only play sports for fun, or should play in competitions or contests Sports are the daily activity for children. However people hold different attitudes to their sports. Some of them assert that children are too young to afford these competitions; otherwise, others hold the point that children's matches must be full of contest. Were it left for me to choose whether children plays sports in competition or only for fun, I will choose the former without any hesitation.

There are some detriments the competition brings, children will feel shameful when they do not have a good performance during the game, which directly results in the children's unwillingness to play that sports. Other voice is that children are at the age of learning fundament of the playing sports so it is unnecessary for them to face too much competition. However, for my perspective, the benefits of competition overweigh the disadvantages it brings. Competition makes the country special, active and energetic.

By facing the competition, children could realize their shortages or deficient efforts. If they lose the match, they will practice more diligently to improve their skills. If they win the competition they will follow their previous training. In other words, competition is kind of comparison and an exam of their previous work to motivate children to exercise harder and more industriously.

Competition is the fundament of the society. Moreover competition teaches children the realities of the victories and losses, with which they must handle. It is so useful for them when these children grow up and enter the society. Competition is a living standard of all creatures around the world. Just think of Darwin's theory, when the environment changes, only the strong or environmental-fitted creatures could survive. Why not let children face the competition earlier in order to adapt the society better? The more profound they understand the world the more desperately they want to change themselves to be stronger.

Comparing to just playing for fun, competition stimulates children in an indirect way. That means the upward mobility throughout the competition encourages children to try harder and explore further

I think it is supposed to be a question:

Should children only play sports for fun, or should they play competitions and contests?

However people hold different attitudes to about their sports.

Some of them assert that children are too young to afford these competitions; otherwise others hold the point that children's matches must be full of contest competition.

Other voice Another important point is that children are...

Just think of Darwin's theory, when the environment changes, only the strong or environmental-fitted creatures could survive.----You made an excellent point here. I disagreed with your argument at the start, but now maybe I agree! :-)
