Did You Know?

There are several benefits to participating in school sponsored sports. Below are just a few:

  • A student involved in middle school athletics has a much lower chance of receiving a behavior referral.

  • A student’s engagement, as measured by effort grades, dramatically increases when involved in a middle school sport or activity.

  • Coaches and teachers have anecdotally noticed great improvement of the self-efficacy of a student after they become involved in athletics and activities.

  • Students who stay involved in school-based athletics or activities at lease up until they turn 15 have much higher graduations rates.

  • Female students who stay involved in school-based athletics or activities at least up until they turn 15 have a much lower risk of teenage pregnancy.
