Why sport, and why competitive sport?

Both casual sports and competitive sports yield benefits. The casual sports are a great way to get some exercise whilst enjoying time with friends. The competitive sports also have a number of other advantages.

Why competitive sport is important in education? Here are 5 reasons:

  1. Encourages higher standards of achievement With greater effort in sport comes greater improvement in a variety of different areas like skills, fitness, teamwork and potentially awards.
  2. Encourages physical activity In sports, students will often push themselves harder in training and in matches. This extra effort results in improved fitness levels as well as extending an individual’s boundaries about their perception of what they are physically capable of.
  3. Builds discipline and self-esteem Competitive sport requires dedicated training and practice. Taking part in such training and seeing improvement helps students to understand that with hard work, often comes results. When they experience these improvements, their self-esteem grows. Good goal setting techniques are highly transferable skills that can be applied across all areas of schooling and life.
  4. Teaches how to lose well/deal with disappointment Losing well is a skill best learnt early and learnt well. Competitive sport is the perfect place to develop this skill as many students are at an age where they are maturing and deciding what type of person they want to be. Engraining good sportsmanship early can ensure students carry these good practices across every aspect of their lives and into their adulthood. Equally as important is teaching students to win gracefully. Competitive sport, especially when the stakes are high and emotions invested, provides ample opportunity for these lessons to be taught, learnt and practiced.
  5. Builds camaraderie and teamwork Team sports are one of the best examples to showcase the need for teamwork to achieve success. Regular training and competition provides regular community and bonding. Working together towards a common goal is one of the most effective ways to grow camaraderie and friendship. It’s this shared experience and emotion that builds loyalty and trust within a team. And it’s not just team sports that require team work. Athletes in individual sports also require support from their coach, friends and family, whom all share in the journey through the sporting season.

You are absolutely right. It is a pity that in our time everyone forgets about it.
