Why School Clubs and Sports are Important for Your Child:

  • Improved Academics.
    • A survey conducted by the Minnesota State High School League in 2007 and reported by the NFHS found that the average GPA of a high school athlete was 2.84, while a student who was not involved in athletics had an average GPA of 2.68.
    • The survey also showed that student involved in clubs or sports missed less school than their non-involved counterparts, with a total of 7.4 days missed and 8.8 days missed, respectively.
    • Another study published in the Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise in August, 2007 found that students who were active in sports like soccer, football and even skateboarding performed 10 percent better in core subjects like math, science, social studies and language arts.
    • Because sports offer equal opportunity to all students at the high school level, these academic benefits extend to all area of the student population, including students that might be traditionally undeserved.
  • Promotes a Healthy Lifestyle.
    • Teenagers who play a sport are already starting a habit of exercise that increases the chances they will continue it throughout adulthood.
  • Social and Parental Bonding.
    • Teens who play a sport or are involved in a club will most likely bond with their peers and this improves their social skills. Sports/Clubs can also maintain and improve parent-teen bonding, if the parents are involved and encourage their son or daughter.
  • Safe Fun.
    • Teenagers need stimulation and if they don’t play a sport or do some other extra-curricular activity, they will find that stimulation elsewhere. Sometimes this can end up hanging out with the wrong crowd or doing some other deviant behavior.
  • Appealing to Colleges.
    • Colleges like to see students involved in extra-curricular activities. It means that they are well rounded and understand how to balance other things besides schoolwork.
  • Social/Psychological Benefits.
    • Compared to non-athlete peers,female high school athletes are less likely to be sexually active, to use drugs, and to suffer from depression (Women’s Sports Foundation, 2004).
    • A correlation has been found between regular exercise and mental health among students in general as they move into the teenage years. Among students who exercised 6 to 7 days a week, 25.1% felt sad for two weeks or more in the past 12 months, compared to 35.7% of students who reported exercising on 0 to 1 day. (Journal of American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, 2015).
