As the saying in English goes, “All work and no Play makes Jack a Dull boy”. It has been forgotten that academic learning and sports education complement each other. They resemble the two sides of the same coin. If sports education is carried out accompanied with the academic curriculum, the overall personality of the student is increased to quite an extent. The qualities of the leadership, sharing, team spirit and tolerance are learnt from sports.
Sports education not only teaches the students to maintain the physical stamina, but also the habit of obedience, discipline, the determination to win, willpower, etc. The power of reasoning, mental development, vocational specialisation comes from the academic education of the students. Therefore, sports education along with the academics result in the all-round development of the students.
Now-a-days the system of education makes the students stress more on their mental development and completely rejects the physical activities. The overall outcome of this is that the developing groups of graduates and professionals have weak bodies and poor physique. The curriculum should include sports, games and physical health education for the all-round development of the students.
Sports education should be introduced in schools and colleges with complete sincerity. It also justifies the statement, “a sound mind resides only in a sound body”. A healthy and strong body is not possible without sports and physical activities.
A good sportsman always learns to obey the rules of the games and the comments of their superiors. It also teaches them leadership qualities, maintaining teamwork and displaying team spirit. Sports education trains the students to face defeat with a smile and maintain the humility even in victory. It is the healthiest means of refreshments and recreation.
Any person good in one walk of life automatically gains confidence in others. So if one is good at sports, it follows that their confidence will spill over to academics as well. With confidence on their side, they are motivated to give their best.
Sports Entrepreneurship Management has become very important in today’s age. With sports being introduced in educational curriculum managing it has become a very important aspect. Various companies like IMG, Octagon, RCS Sports help the educational institutions manage the sports related activities.
With the advent of leagues for various sports like cricket, football, hockey and kabaddi in India the money earning capacity for sports people has considerably increased along with making life easier for them. It has also opened newer avenues for livelihood for people not only in India but across the globe.
Sports releases feel-good endorphin which elevates the mood. A good mood is conducive to performing well in other fields because there is peace of mind that allows greater concentration. Sports acts as a great outlet for frustrations of any kind.

Sports and Games—Their Importance
Value of Games and Sports
Nobody can deny that games are a part and parcel of life. In fact, life itself is a game and this world is a big playground. We have to play the game of life with all our energy and courage. The game of life is a hard nut to crack. In order to play the game of life well, we have to learn to be good players. It is through games and sports only that we can learn how best to overcome the challenge of life.
There are different kinds of games and sports. There are indoor games as cards, chess, ludo ect. Out of the out-door games,Hockey, Football, Volleyball, Cricket, Tennis, etc. are the more common ones. Races, Jumps, Throws, Weight-lifting are some of the other kinds of the sports. Games and sports are necessary and useful for all. They are specially useful for the students who must have a balanced development of the body as well as the mind. A sound mind lives only in a sound body. “All work and no play,” as the proverb goes, “ makes Jack a dull boy.” Games and sports contribute to an all round development of personality and develop such qualities as help in the formation of a noble character.
Games play an important part in life. Education is incomplete without games. Games are necessary to keep the body fit and trim. Moreover, they provide recreation. As a result, one feels smart and cheerful throughout the day. If one is cheerful and healthy, he or she is able to get the best out of life. A player really enjoys life. For him, life is a song and a beauty. On the other hand, an unhealthy man cannot enjoy life.
We feel happier in a playground than we do in a class-room. While playing in the playground we feel happier because we forget the homework and the scolding of the teachers. Players are better friends. Games teach us the lesson of discipline, team-work, patience and punctuality. In the playground, the players obey the captain and abide by the rules of the games. Games also teach us that we should play a game for game’s sake, not for victory or defeat. As Grantland Rice has apply re marked:
“When the Great scorer comes
To write against your name
He marks – not that you won or lost—
But how you played the game.”
The Duke of Wellington once said,” The battle of Waterloo was won on the playground of Eton.” He meant that discipline, patience, courage, and optimism learnt on the playgrounds of Eton had stood him in good stead and these qualities had lead him to victory.
If a person is physically fit, he is also mentally fit and healthy. There is always a sound mind in a sound body. A healthy man is always hopeful and cheerful. On the other hand, an unhealthy person leads a painful and miserable life. Life become a burden to him. Games and sports also produce a sense of equality, co-operation and fraternity. They provide enough of amusement to remove the rust caused by our dull routine. They add colour to an otherwise dull and boring life. All those qualities which we get from the playground help us to face the struggle of life.
Today, games and sports have assumed a great importance. Sportsmen and players have started choosing sports and game as their career. It is a compulsory subject in schools in most of the states in the country. State Governments are giving special grants to their best sportsmen and players. Newspapers and periodicals carry special section for sports news from all corners of the world. Matches played at the national or international level are relayed over the radio network. The staging of the ninth Asian games in 1982 and the World Cricket Cup in 1994 in India greatly enhanced the status and prestige of the lovers of sports all over the country. Sportsmen are certainly the backbone of any nation. They certainly deserve a place of pride and honour in any country.
