What are the benefits of playing sports?

  • Health: As we all know, playing sports is a great exercise tactic! The stress on your body builds up endurance and strength, making them strong and healthy. Exercise is also the main factor in reducing chances of obesity and heart muscle ability, reducing the possibility of heart diseases.

  • Self confidence and self esteem: Words of encouragement from teammates, parents and other schools bring great self confidence. Students are able to believe in themselves and achieve things they truly set their mind to setting them up for future success.

  • Teamwork: Teamwork is a great learning tool for students to develop at a young age to prepare them for the real world. In order to win students must work together to make it happen just how students must work together in school!

  • Leadership: Sports teach students the responsibility it takes to lead and guide others/the world. Leadership is an essential skill for students to develop that’ll be helpful in the long run and in their future. For instance, if a student later in life decides they want to be a politician they got to develop those skills while playing sports!

  • Social Skills: Being on a sports team you are essentially forced to work with others which is an important skill to have to work towards success! People will want to work with others who are open and easy to talk to, sports teach your students those techniques!

  • Discipline: We all know how much work and dedication is put into a sport which is good to have because it will allow the student to become more in tune and strict with themselves to work towards success. In sports students must listen to guidelines in rules just how a person has to do in life. This allows your student to be on the road to self improvement.

  • Improved energy levels: Playing sports will help your student build up endurance and tolerance being able to be more awake and aware during the day. A student whom is active has fewer struggles and able to have improved lung health.

  • Managing emotions: Sports allow students to let off all their steam on the field. Students can use this time to let out all their stress and emotions into a sport; it gives a place to be free of everything and let loose to become more in tune with themselves.
