- Health, Fitness and body awareness
As students grow and pass from one grade to another, the importance of sports significantly reduce and they are pushed towards academic achievements only.

Sports impart body awareness in students and they stay away from drugs and alcohol.They start loving their body and participate less in unhealthy or risky behavior. Sport release feel-good hormones ‘endorphins’ which helps them stay in good mood and achieve good grades by better performance, says a physical fitness trainer at one of the best schools in Gurgaon.

This is an extremely sought after skills in the professionals world and frame the mind of a student towards leadership, suggested a veteran physical education teacher at one of the best schools in Gurgaon.
Sport offer sense of time to students. Some sport last only for few minutes and it creates histories in those few minutes. As an athlete each second is important as it might take you to your goal. They understand the important of each minute and that time is limited and crucial. Once a student understands that time is a limited asset they start prioritizing time. Time management is a critical skill that is required at every step of the way in our lives whether we are students writing in examination or in corporate office work towards a deadline, says a Principal of one of the best schools in Gurgaon.
Sports teach students teamwork and cooperation. You learn to socialize. How to manage a team, maintain relationships, co-operations and aiming for common goals, much like working in an organization, says a senior education consultant in a top school in Gurgaon. Student should get an idea of how to work in future in their respective jobs where achieving company’s common goal is the idea.
