Sports is needed not only in school but through out life. So school is essentially a great place to start off. A person good in academics does not mean that a person is healthy. For good health sports is important. What better way then having a great time with your friends?
I think sports or games are important than studies because when you study, you might get some stress, so you might need something to entertain you. When you keep on studying, an enormous amount of stress will press you, and it might be hard to concentrate, so you might need to rest, and you can entertain yourself by playing games or doing sports. I think a healthy person that did sports and games will be better than an unhealthy person that did not much sports but smart person because health is better than cleverness and intelligence
It is good socialization for kids. It also teaches discipline and kids get exercise. I think grades are important, but teaching good sportsmanship, discipline, and getting kids out of the house is as important. I like to see kids participate in extra curricular activities and I am a teacher. There are many lessons to be learned!
They are defiantly as important because sports don't make you obese and studies give you a good education, which will give you a good career and sports will give you a career too. They both help a part of your body stay active. Sports helps your muscles and studies help your brain stay active. So, sports and games are just as important as studies.
School was made for learning not for playing around. If we wanted our kids to play around not learn then we send them to a playground. If not for school kids would already be playing a lot of sports already. So why do we chorrupt the one place they learn with sports.
Sports are good because they help with fitness and teach teamwork and fair play, but studies are more important. Studies are needed in all areas of life, and are used for work and outside of work. Even if you get a job in sports, it won't last long. If you are injured, or get old, you can play anymore, but studies last a lifetime.
Sports are certainly not as important as studies because very few kids are going to make careers in sports however, most have potential to do well academically. So many athletes fall behind in school because of immense focus on sports and then they end up not getting into college because of their sport. I'm certainly not against sports, they're fun and they inspire kids but they shouldn't be placed ahead of schoolwork. I also believe that kids should stay active but sports are not the only way to do so. Kids can go jogging, lift weights or attend a gym.
