“Extracurricular activities and sports teach students many important life lessons. It teaches discipline, focus, dedication, hard work, commitment, teamwork. It is our responsibility as adults to value sportsmanship and award the courage of students to take action rather than focusing on winning or losing. Sports allow students to be agile and fit that only increases the concentration in academics and the willingness to perform better in any field.
