Benefits of daily exercise:
Many athletes do better academically: Playing a sport requires a lot of time and energy. Some people may think this would distract student-athletes from schoolwork. Sport requires memorization, repetition and learning — skill-sets that are directly relevant to classwork.
Sport teaches teamwork and problem-solving skills: Fighting for a common goal with a group of players and coaches teaches you how to build teamwork and effectively communicate to solve problems
Physical health benefits of sports: Clearly, sports can help you reach your fitness goals and maintain a healthy weight. However, they also encourage healthy decision-making, such as not smoking and not drinking
Sports boost self-esteem: Watching your hard work pay off and achieving your goals develops self-confidence.
Reduce pressure and stress with sports: Exercising is a natural way to loosen up and let go of stress.
