Benefits of Sport in Schools

Participation in school sports provides a sense of belonging and being part of a team or group. Students interact with their peers in a friendly manner. Students learn to consider the interests of their teammates and to practice mutual respect and cooperation. Students work together, share time and other resources, take turns to play and learn to cope with success and failure as a team. These interactions facilitate bonding and lasting friendships with Student’s classmates, which can help make children more sociable and outgoing as they grow, motivate and continue to help others.
