But now trends are changing, the mind frame is changing, the definition of education has evolved over a period of time radically. Sport events, extra-curricular activities or other practice for the learning of skills are now becoming important. More emphasis is on the holistic growth of learners rather than the growth of one tract. These days, classes, apart from academics, are equally focused on extra-curricular events and athletics to make students all-rounders.
Earlier people use to say “Sports will spoil the life” but now sports activities are getting focus. Sports are playing an important role in holistic development and in educating students as it teaches them to become strong from inside and also develop a fit and sound body.
Fusion of sports and education can help students to develop a self-motivating spirit to do things on their own and increase accountability and responsibility. Being active in sports can help students relax from the syllabus of their daily learning course routine and also reduce the stress of the exam. Keeping mind, body and soul in harmony and maintaining a balance between work and play is a great medium. Day-to-day sports training will help students develop leadership skills
As educational institutions view sports as a significant practice, there is also an influence on the sector. Today, internationally, there is a unifying appeal as an industry for a sport. The sports market has a diverse appeal that many other, even bigger sectors admire.It has the authority to describe countries in their entirety. Sports offer an outstanding opportunity to investigate science principles such as stamina, movement, potential capacity, speed, and torque.
Sports – Still for the sake of formality
Each school has sports incorporated in their curriculum as they recognize the value of physical fitness and exercise. However, the meaning given to sports stops there, as this presence is solely for the sake of formality.
It is found that schools use sports only for the following reason:
1. Marketing purpose 2. Brochure Decoration 3. Board’s Guidelines compliance 4. Because others are doing
But if school really views sport as a significant thing, students will really support them. They will genuinely provide students with holistic development.
