“Students need to keep busy,” said Kim Millard, a P.E. teacher at Buzz Aldrin Elementary School. “Playing a sport is definitely a way to make friends in school, as it’s a healthy competition and teaches you how to be resilient when things aren’t going your way.”

Studies say that participating in a sports activity further helps players understand homework and classwork material.

Students at schools try out for lots of sports, but they don’t know how hard it might be for them. Students are learning ways to better manage their time when they are playing on a sports team. That is because they will have to go practice every day and after they do their homework and study. It can also help boost confidence and respect.

“It helps being on the field because it will boost your confidence in the classroom — for example when you are doing a presentation, you will be more confident when presenting,” says high school student Mike Michallas.

“It helps with students grades because in sports you must have a GPA requirement to stay on the team, so it helps boost students so they won’t fall behind,” Mike says.

You can get injured in everything that you do in your daily life, but in sports there are a lot of injuries. Studies say that 3.5 million people get hurt from sports each year. Yet a lot of those 3.5 million kids keep playing sports. Why?

“You can get injured from sports and that can be a small or huge setback,” said Mr. Campagna, a seventh-grade PE teacher at RCMS.

Sports play a big role in most of our lives, as they help people with a plethora of skills. studies say that participating in sports help you can maintain your weight, increase endurance, become stronger and build healthier muscles and bones.

“It keeps them socially engaged with other kids, helps their self esteem, and their confidence, as they can learn a lot about themselves while doing sports,” Mrs. Millard. “It also keeps them active, keeps them out of trouble and keeps them busy.”

It is important for students to get the proper physical education needed for their grade level, as healthy activity will help them perform better academically and better help their education.  

“My grades have definitely improved, because when there is a big game or something, then I will be more efficient with my work and manage my time more wisely,” said Mike Michallas.
