I think that they are fair, because you go to school to learn. So you should be more concerned about your grades than sports, even though they are fun.
You have 4 years of eligibility, and cannot be 19 or older.
It is fair because you need to be disaplined. If you plan on going to college for these sports then you will have to have good grades to go to a good team.
Eligibility to play high school sports is not based on individual grades, but rather than your GPA. You can fail a class and still play high schools sports, only if your GPA is about a 2.0. Anything lower than a 2.0 and you become ineligible to play a high school sport.
You can play sports if you smoke, though your performance will likely be impaired relative to what it could have been if you had never smoked. If you're in high school, smoking on school grounds is usually enough of an infraction to get you suspended from school, which by most state activity association rules has a negative impact on your eligibility to participate in intramural sports. That might be what you were thinking of.
all is fair in war and sports because our goal is winning.
No, it is not.
Sports is introduced in school primarily for physical activity. Physical activity is recognized as a component of good health by the FDA. However, there are also side benefits such as instilling competitiveness, fair play and teamwork among students.
Anyone who meets the eligibility requirements of the NCAA Bylaws can play college sports. Age is not a determining factor in the eligibility requirement.

I think sports are a great way to get young children active, and I most definently think that sports teams would be excellent in elementary schools, so kids can get ready for school sports in middle and high school.
