The research is about the impact of sports towards students. The term sports is very
important in this study. Sports are a universal word having many synonyms such as
games, event, activities, exercises and recreation. Students have known sports in their
own version or perspective. Sports in English when used as a noun. describes a game and
recreations. When used as a verb, it describes the process or activities involved in
student's life. The Oxford Advanced learner's Dictionary of Current English ( 1995)
defines sports as activities made for people to life. Regarding Sports definition, Sports is
all forms of usually competitive physical activity which through casual or organised
participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing
entertainment to participation.
According to the preliminary results of an ongoing national study.Students who
participate in sports express less hostility toward their classmates and are more likely to
graduate from high school and go on to college. According to Jomills Braddock II( 1998);
"Students who participate in sports are less likely to be hostile or antagonistic toward
other students regardless of their race or ethnicity. Moreover, according to Director of
the University of Miami 's Center for Research on sport in Society, "Sports require
teamwork in pursuit of mutual goals to achieve success . With sports, students learn to
recognize and value the unique and important contributions of their diverse teammates.

Participation in sports requires on students to work as a team and be persistent in
order to succeed . It also gives students access to positive role models, such as coaches
and older players who can set positive examples. Students tend to be sensitive to
criticisms. self-conscious, loyal to peers and more motivated by social factors than by
academic concerns. As a result ,they benefits from sports that foster team work and
skill-building through "no-cut" policies rather than highly competitive programs imilar
to those found at institution.
Sports also help adolescents to develop lifelong habits of physical activity that will
benefit them throughout their lives. The long term effects of inadequate physical activity
can include obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure, so it is important that students
build active habits instead of spending their free time watching television, playing video
games or using a computer. According to the united states Department of Health and
Human Services, students sports participation also reduces the likelihood that teens will
eventually drop out of school and increases their chances of attending college.
