The most important part in a sports education is the opportunity of leadership and socialization but also the development of skills to handle success and failure.
Benefits of a good sports education:
- developing skills
- learning to follow rules
- leading an active lifestyle
- learning leadership skills
What about students with low skills?
Students may be marginalized because of their lack of skills as opposed to other students. They need to know the fact that they have small chances to become professional sportsmen but they should not quit. With a proper education they benefit from being part of a team and develop self-confidence. This will be important in a long run because they will use those skills when they become adults. Also, the option to become referees or Sports Journalists is always available.
Knowing more about the sport you play:
Another advantage of sport education is that children will learn more about the sport they are playing. Through roles such as statistician, referee, and scorekeeper, they learn more about the non-player roles of play. This way they will take these responsibilities seriously and show minimal signs of off-task behaviors while performing these roles.
Why is it very important for kids to play at least one sport?
Kids need attention and respect,but they have few ways to get them. A sport offers kids an arena where they can earn attention and respect by showing their natural abilities. Kids are good at sports because sports are essentially about vision, speed, creativity, strength, coordination, and responsiveness – something that every child has.
The ultimate goal of sports education is for students to become competent, literate, and enthusiastic in sports and in life at the same time.
