From a young age people promote the fact that children should have a well-rounded education. This means that you must make your child engage in some sporting activity from a young age so that he has a wholesome education rather than merely studying what is taught in class. I am not denying that what we learn in class is equally important merely that as the saying goes all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
It wouldn’t do if the only thing your child does at school is stay in the classroom. Playing a sport especially of you play a team sport will increase your ability to work in a team. You will learn the hardships of losing but also learn that you must never give up. This is also where you get the first opportunity to be a leader and hone your leadership skills for the future.
The thing is if you were good at the sport you play in school you will most likely even get a sports scholarship to a university. The pride and joy that you get when you finally receive your letter man jacket is just amazing. A custom varsity jackets that you make for yourself will never be the same as earning it. Sports can be very satisfying while you are at university as this would give you way to blow off some steam. Of course one of the biggest things is that at that age it’s one of the best ways to interact with people of a similar age. In present times socializing is very important and more importantly everyone wants to be popular. Sports are an obvious way to get some popularity while in university.
Making a stylish jackets many years later to hide your regrets is not really going to work. Seize the opportunity while it is still within your reach. Like I said earlier you need to experience the world around you and gain an all-round education because sports are the best training ground to train you for what is out there once you are done with your education. Moreover sports will teach you to be competitive which is very important when you start working somewhere. Sports will also very good for your health in the long run.
Locking yourself up in a room and studying day in day out is not going to do wonders for your health. You need to do something to stay fit. I do understand that not everyone is cut out for sports like rugby or cricket. But there will always be some sport that you could engage yourself in. So try your luck and have some fun before it is too late because university is your last opportunity to engage in sports unless you are thinking of being a professional athlete.
