what is the use of sports and other activities. i mean that one can get good jobs only by studying hard. and he is happy without sports then why today schools are presurizing us to do sports and other activities....

I would say that sports and other activities are very important to have in schools.
First of all, they help make well rounded people out of the student's. When a student experiences not only academics, but also music, art, theater, and sports they will be much more experienced individuals, and will be much more knowledgable as a result. This, in turn, will make them better able to succeed in all areas of their lives. In addition, it is just a good experience.

Second, participating in sports will foster teamship and leadership skills. These skills aply very well to all aspects of the business world and will certainly help you when applying for a job.

Finally, sports will keep students fit. Obesity, especially childhood obesity, is a huge problem in America, and sports can help curb it. In general, without these activities being offered in schools most students would bnever get exposed to them. Perhaps a student will be so inspired by his art class that he goes on to be a painter. Maybe a young musician will eventually become a famous pianist. PErhaps a football player will go on to play in the NFL. Maybe a young actor will become a star.

There is no reason to limit what people can do. The more oppurtunities they have, the more they can achieve.

(I would ver much reccomend that you get involved in some sort of spot or other activity. It really can be a great experience)

well n mi opinion spoorts are wasting time

sports were introduced with the motive that students wud remain fit
but this can be done by regular morning walks ,, proper diet,, and attending GYMS
then whynot save time to study

other big matter is that the sports exhaust children and wud act as a barrier tto stop children from studying

you must have heard of a phase that "one in hand is better than two in bushes"
same here . sports and studies couldnot be continued togeather . why? because students would try to be best in both of them and eventually become average in both of them. well if a child is able to be good at one thing then why give him burden of other. we all know that being good is better than being average.

other big factor is that studies act as a weigh of 100kgs oer a person thanwhay giving him more burden................

I agree with "wryan".
Sports and other activities are important to have in school.
First, Extra curricular activities help keep kids in "a good crowd".
Second,They help with the problem of obesity. Which is a huge problem in America.
They teach kids how to keep up with responsibility. They provide children with experience.
