Benefit of Sports for children

Sports have a significant impact on a child’s overall growth & results in the enhancement of confidence & nourishment of mind, body & soul. Physical fitness helps students in enhancing gross motor skills and stretching physical ability to an optimum level. It acts as an important component of leading a healthy life. Sports provide healthy & steady fitness activity and have a significant impact on child’s moral development, discipline and leadership skills.

Step up school lays a strong emphasis on physical development of our students. We believe in group participation and therefore, the curriculum of sports is designed and planned in such a manner so that stepians develop skills like strength, speed, endurance, agility, control, balance & flexibility, etc. Stepians are encouraged participate in various sport activities like Squash, Table Tennis, Football, Chess, Basketball, Foosball, skating etc.

Several benefits of integrating sports as an essential element of school curriculum are listed below–

  1. Team spirit & Sportsmanship
  2. Leadership Skills
  3. Sense of Competition
  4. Self Esteem & Determination
  5. Resilience
  6. Improved Fitness Level
  7. Discipline
  8. Strategic Thinking
  9. Self Confidence
  10. Enhanced Social Skills

A student should be physically and emotionally robust, & focused to perform well in academics. Incorporating sports in school curriculum can help them to achieve this goal to a great extent. We must understand & accept the fact that, if we want our kids with nerves of steel & muscles of iron, we have to include physical education/activities as an indispensable part of the school curriculum.
