HIGHLIGHTS

  • Sports is an important part of life especially for a student
  • Sports make a student more passionate.
  • Sports and academic can go hand in hand.

The general concept in minds of parents is that sports hurt their children's academic performance but it is not the case it has much more positive aspects to it which helps children in their academic performance. Physical activities are a part of life and important in a child’s life, parents tend to believe reverse of this because of the shortage of time and they want their child to devote more and more time towards studies as they consider it more important than sports. The routine of having a sport in a child’s life makes them effective and efficient in their studies also because having a routine with sports they tend to adopt more disciplined behavior. Participation in sports especially in the morning makes the attitude of the child more positive because waking up early always makes a person more active all day. It also expands knowledge and experience and also enhances memory because learning about different aspects is what makes a child allrounder. It also increases attentiveness in classrooms because while playing a sport a student has to concentrate fully otherwise it will be of no use, and like this, a child develops a habit of having longer attention span and become more concentrated in studies also. That will eventually lead to better academic performance because concentration is the main key for studies, and a student memorizes everything for a longer period. Also, frequent participation in sport and physical activity at a young age encourages positive cognitive development in youth, developing and learning to use the core skills of the brain to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and solve problems. Sport and physical activity positively impact academic performance as it encourages the enhancement of brain and function and cognition through increasing blood flow to the brain; increasing levels of norepinephrine and endorphins; and increasing growth factors that help create new nerve cells and support synaptic plasticity. Participating in sports also provides an opportunity for students to interact with different children of different age groups which boosts confidence and promotes strong friendly relations. Students with participation in sports also show the skill of better commitment toward different things. Sport and physical activity in schools can produce gender diverse role models that empower young women and girls who continue to be under-represented in school sports and physical education. Also, it positively impacts their physical health, and adopting frequent physical activity into the routines of children is associated with decreased cardiovascular risk in adolescence through adulthood. Participation in physical activity also has a positive correlation with lower drug and alcohol use in schools. It also improves mental health because things like confidence and self-esteem are also increased with participation in sports. Sport and physical activity in schools can enable students to develop the skills, knowledge, and networks not only to succeed in the classroom but at home, in the community, and in their careers. Through skills development and increased confidence, active students are more likely to have the desire and capabilities to pursue higher education. Sport and physical activities allow students to learn skills and internalize values that are attractive to employers, with studies showing that they are also more likely to secure high-quality employment as a result. Studies also show that students who participate in extra-curricular sports are more likely to be active participants in their communities and engage with social and charitable issues.
