People are debating whether sports in high school is a distraction to students or a way to help students establish better characteristic and encourage them to go to school. High School sports can expand school spirit, give opportunities and positive recognition to student, this can help students be more confident about themselves. In some schools, sports over shadow the achievement of other programs like music, academic and arts program. People think that this is unfair because the sport teams gets more resources from the community. Although some believes that sports should not be included in education, participating in sports can help students improve in behaviors and bring students to a better and brighter future in society.
These need to focus more on letting the children be and polish their individual skills rather than eliminating the weak ones and selecting the stronger ones to play. The sports must be used as a medium to make the children more healthy and physically and psychological
In the rat race of today, every one seems to only focus on winning. They forget the main goal of playing is to establish the concept of teamwork, sportsmanship, and collaboration with the fellow players. I believe that the truly alarming fact is the extent to which parents are in favour of these kinds of sports activities that they ignore the health issues their children will face. They put an enormous amount of pressure and expect nothing but the best from them. This causes a lot of mental health issue when little children fail to come up to the desired expectations.
It is as if some kids are scared that their skill won’t matter.For example in the article Minds made up before tryouts it says “Regardless of when tryouts are, it seems like coaches already have their minds made up by the summer, if they have summer camps or if they coach a travel team” (smith para 2). As you may know sports teams may have a summer program that kids can get involved, in which the coaches may pick kids to make the team not by their skill but by their personality. Also in Sports tryouts should be fair for all students it says “There were plenty of boys trying out for the team and several that were cut so these ineligible and injured boys could have their spots. How is any of this fair? This is why kids get discouraged and stop playing or trying to play sports” (John's para 4).
“Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers). To improve this, teachers and parents need to be mindful of how their students feel and need to not push them as much. You could see why people might think cheating is okay and vital to succeed, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s wrong and that you should talk to your teachers about how you
The students just need to get the help. As long as the students are getting the help, there’s no point in the no pass, no play rule. For school teams, the coaches are typically teachers. The teachers understand the struggle students are going through, “Coaches are very understanding about a student putting schoolwork ahead of sports. They will be understanding if a student needs to attend extra help after school before coming to a practice.” Students can balance school and sports, they just need to find the balance first.
Children all over the world as young as five and up are involved with sports. Sports offer a great way to acquire traits such as leadership, communication, time management, and discipline (UK). It's healthy for kids to put down video games and associate themselves with physical activity. But parents and coaches are now pushing kids a lot harder than ever. This usually leads to an injury or burnout.
Kids who are involved in sports are more likely to stay in school and graduate. Graduation should be a main propriety for parents, so that kids can be successful later in life. “Studies have shown that high school athletes have higher grades than non-athletes, lower absentee levels, a significantly smaller percentage of discipline referrals, lower percentages of dropouts, and higher graduation rates (Child Trend).” May colleges want students that were involved in sports. In high school its tough to balance sports and school. Kids that are able to balance the two, are prime candidates for collages.
If you went around asking people at school if they participated in any type of sport or athletic. “No” will be the most common answer. That can be for many reasons. Most people see athletics as a waste of time and an inconvenience. Unfortunately, not many kids or adults know about the tremendous benefits of participating in athletics.
In the article “The Benefits of Competitive Athletic Sports Participation in Today’s Sports Climate” made by Kirk Mango and states “Working toward a common goal is an integral part of the sports experience for athletes. It is through this experience that some grow into leaders and others into strong supporters, both of which a team will need to be successful.” This explains how sports are excellent for kids because leaders and supporters in the real world are needed to keep the world going. Children that are leaders can become big people in the world like a CEO, public speaker, and even a politician. If children learn that they are good leaders early in life they can develop their leadership skills to become the best person they can be. Supporters are also needed to support the leaders and everyone else.
