Sports can add so much to a student's learning power and job skills.
Studies show that participating in school sports makes students brighter and more connected to their school. Sports also provides students with opportunities to problem solve, get along with others and work as a team member, all of these are valuable skills for the world of work. A well rounded education that focuses on the child's mind, emotional well being and social well being is the best kind of education. School sports provides a well rounded learning experience.
Sports is healthy
Sport is extremely beneficial for health and fitness. Exercise benefits every part of the body, including the mind. It causes the body to produce endorphins, that can help a person to feel more peaceful and happy. Exercise can help some people sleep better. It can also help some people who have mild depression and low self-esteem. Plus, exercise can give people a real sense of accomplishment and pride at having achieved a certain goal. Moreover, exercising can help you look better. People who exercise burn more calories and look more toned than those who don't. In fact, exercise is one of the most important parts of keeping your body at a healthy weight.
Exercise also helps people lose weight and lower the risk of some diseases. Exercising to maintain a healthy weight decreases a person's risk of developing certain diseases, including type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. These diseases, which used to be found mostly in adults, are becoming more common in teenagers.
Exercise can help a person age well. This may not seem important now, but your body will thank you later. Women are especially prone to a condition called osteoporosis (a weakening of the bones) as they get older. Studies have found that weight-bearing exercise - like jumping, running, or brisk walking - can help children keep their bones strong.
No, sports should not be cut from school.
Not every child is academically gifted. Some children only excel in athletics. Cutting sports means taking away the one thing that some children can do well in. In addition, with childhood obesity on the rise cutting sports is a terrible idea, as many children only get any kind of work out is during the organized sports they play school.
No, sports should be allowed in schools!
Sports accually help kids. Like in school, kids are expected to keep everything bottled up inside, like stress, emotions, and anger. But if they are with other kids playing a game they all like, and getting along then it relieves a lot of it. Sports is something that everyone should encourage , I know I do!
Sports should stay!!
Sports are one of the most coolest things a kid could do, and at school. Research shows that a lot of kids get better grades and calm down when they are playing sports like football for example. The boys and girls who play football, soccer, or any school sport try their best to keep up the good grades so they can keep playing. It's like a challenge to most of them, and it's a great way for them to be active and happy. Another example of why they need sports is because say like you have a MAP or any other form of test coming up, playing sports calms you down. So, sports should stay in school. You don't want kids unhappy and under so much pressure when the sports are gone.
The inclusion of sports programs help enable students to be well-rounded
With many schools facing budget cutbacks, it seems likely that sports will be an early target. There may also be active opposition to sports in schools citing excessively competitive natures among the teams and parents or negative effects of sports-related injuries.
Nevertheless, sports programs are helpful in facilitating not only physical health but also teamwork, friendship, dedication, accountability, and other important qualities in students that help benefit the student's education as a whole. The issue of physical health is particularly important as obesity and associated health issues become more prevalent, and students without sports programs to turn to have more options that do not involve physical activity. Ultimately, the benefits of these programs outweigh the risks and the expense - to both the student and society - in the long run.
No because kids need there time to have fun and play
School sports to me are like free choice when i was a kid. Sports are what I need when i need a break from class and I spend a lot of time practicing and i think it is important. That really helped me get my grades up and helped my opinion
Sports are good.
Kids need to have things to look forward to after school. Kids will want to be on the team so they will keep here grades up so they don't get kicked of the team. Sports can help kids "kill" there stress from the day when they play sports after school. This is simply what kids need.
No sport should not be cut !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sports are completely overrated. I am on academic team, which got third in state. It received no recognitin and no one even hardly spoke about it from the school. However, our basketball team which won one or two games this year got in the school newspaper and acquired much recognition from the student body.
Sports also creates social classes. There are the successful, "nerds" which everyone treats as outcasts. There are the, "jocks" who copy the nerds papers, get all the girls, and everyone knows them.
Take sports out of school and it will have its priorities straight again!
Posted by: Cowboy0108 n Pro-Sport articles, the author always puts up a picture of children or teenagers winning something and they all are smiling from cheek to cheek. What is doesn't show is the other half of the equation - the losers. This is just one of the many reasons why sport teams should not be allowed in school. Children are harsh and mean but you know who are typically worse? Die-hard sport fans. Now try combining these two types of people and think about how that fan would feel if their sport team lost? Pretty bad. And who would the fan take out his/her problems with the team on? The person or persons who lose the game
Sports should not be cut
Schools have children that are gifted in athletics. Kids need to stay off the streets or keeping out of trouble. I think that sports can contain kids from breaking the law or doing something stupid. Sports is the only thing most kids look forward to in school. Obviously sports have academic standards, so I think students would actually have an increase in grades.
