School Sports

by Logan Bolling

Crowds are roaring all across America for high school football teams! Parents and students have been helping each other out to get them to football practice and still pass in school. Students do better in schools when they are involved in sports.

Students do better academically when they play school sports, for example, "according to a 2013 report from the Institute of Medicine, physically active kids have more focus, are better problem solvers, and score higher on tests." Students that go to schools that have sports, have better test grades.

Students have been getting out and more active. "A 20001 survey found that students agreed they would not spend as much time in sedentary activities like watching television and playing video games if they had other options after school." Schools have been creating a lot more after school activities. If schools had more activities, more kids would do them instead of video games.

In school sports, you half to have leadership for a successful team."Senior athletes are expected to encourage younger team members and hold them accountable." It teaches younger athletes to start helping the team by leading it.

Schools sports has many benefits that can change your way of thinking about life. I think that all schools need some sort of physical education to keep students well because it keeps them involved.
