Sports Can Be the Solution To Many Problems

Sports are among the most popular, loved, and important things in the modern era. In all twelve years of school that most children experience, many schools introduce students to all kinds of sports to get into that world of fitness.

Studies and statistics have confirmed that “Sports help children develop physical skills, get exercise, make friends, have fun, learn teamwork, learn to play fair, and improve self-esteem. “ According to many athletes, teenage and high school were the years that their self-esteem hit the lowest, so doing sports helped them improve their self-esteem and their overall mental health.

“Playing a sport requires a lot of time and energy. Some people may think this would distract student-athletes from schoolwork. However, the opposite is true. Sports require memorization, repetition and learning — skillsets directly relevant to class work. Also, the determination and goal-setting skills a sport requires can be transferred to the classroom.” says Health Care.

Moreover, schools across Canada should engage their students to get involved in the many sports they offer because this step won’t just improve their athletic side. It will also help them succeed academically, hitting two birds with one stone.

“I think the costs to join a team are quite expensive, so many of my friends don’t join because of that..” said a high school student in Manitoba. Lowering the costs so it can match all the students’ financial levels would allow more students to get the chance to enjoy being on a team and playing their chosen sport.

Sports during high school can be one of the most critical building blocks for the future generations carrying the country.
