A healthy nation is always a wealthy nation. Therefore, it is necessary to put emphasis on sports. One can think of a healthy mind only in a healthy body. Both physical and mental well being are the prerequisites of great achievements in one’s life. However, the growing popularity of computer, video games and television makes the today’s youth very inactive in their lifestyles whereas a greater amount of time spent in these activities must be spent in some physical activities. Participation in organised sports and other physical activities can have many benefits for children. It offers the chance for youth to enhance their physical and social skills. However, a balance should be maintained that matches the child’s maturity, skills, and their interests with their sports participation. Sports offer children a means of entertainment as well as a change from the monotony of their daily life.
The importance of sports in the life of a young student is invaluable. It instils lessons that are essential in the life of a student. Sports play a pivotal role in the makeup of a young athlete. Where else can a young, impressionable youth learn values like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, sacrifice, and accountability?
