Games and Sports help in personal growth that includes a variety of physical and psychological factors. Involvement of youth in sports and games is a viable method of promoting good health. There is a positive relationship between psychological well-being and regular involvement in physical activity, especially in the areas of reduction of anxiety and depression. Sport also serves as a mechanism for the transmission of values, knowledge, and norms in creating social harmony and exercise through sporting activities is an excellent stress reliever.
Engaging youth in sports teaches young people how to interact and work together towards a common goal. Teamwork in Football, Hockey and Cricket is one of the most important skills that students learn, and nowhere is this easier to teach than on the sports field. Here students can learn how each individual's effort combined with that of their teammates creates the chances of success for the team.
Even if a child isn't happy with team sports, there are plenty of sporting opportunities where individual effort is required. Track and field events, Tennis, Badminton, Table tennis are usually the more obvious ones. Students get the chance to test their skills against peers at inter-class events in much the same way that the teams compete in inter-house matches or individual events.
