In America, at least one of every three high school students will participate in a team sport. The American educational system encourages athletics as contributing to a well-rounded, healthy society. Sports instill a form of competition that helps to develop individuals physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and sometimes even financially. Some of the benefits include….
Physical Effects: Physical activity is necessary for a healthy body.
Emotional Effects: Sports give individuals a sense of belonging because of the team attitude: "Together Everyone Achieves More!"
Brain Workout: Exercise affects every aspect of the body, including the brain.
Social Development: Social skills are a prominent attribute of sports, and socialization is the result.
Middle and High school students in the Lake Holcombe School District will participate in their Fall Sports Meeting on Thursday August 1 at 6:30PM in the Commons. The computer lab will be open from 4-6PM for Rschool registration. High School athletics bring a community together. Athletics are an important part of the overall school experience and are important to any school community. When you see a student athlete; thank them for their contribution to the team. Let them know that you support them and their efforts on behalf of their school and community. Encourage them to make good choices and to work hard in school.
