No student should be able to make up their own mind what they want to wast their time on.I hated sport and wether it was compulsory or not, they could never make take part.

I am now 60 and one of the few people I know that can touch their toes without difficulty.

(whoever this is..... i love sport)

Sports should be compulsory for a couple of reasons. Firstly, more students and other people are obese and students tend to not have exercises. Having sports at school should at least lose hundred's of calories. Secondly, this helps students to study other subjects since sports keeps them healthy and active. Lastly, it slows down or stops of having other diseases such as Heart disease and Diabetes.

it depneds on the school's budget and financial status. If the school is very keen on funding sports and sports equitment to the school, then chances are they are going to have more sports. some schools however may not have the time and money to provide to schools sporting teams. however i believe that schools should have alot of sports team's for exercise and fun.

• Schools could offer intramural programs instead of competitive, interscholastic programs. This would allow students to gain the health benefits of sports without some of the drawbacks.

• Participation in sports distracts students from their school work. Time spent at practices and games could be spent studying or doing homework.

• Participation in sports causes injury. Interscholastic football is particularly likely to cause injury. Additionally, Wrestling often supports unhealthy eating habits that hurt students that are still physically developing. In general, students are at an age at which they are particularly vulnerable to injury, and a sense of competition might encourage students to push themselves to injury.

• Students might become overly competitive. If this happens, they may take performance-enhancing drugs, cheat, and be disrespectful to other students that are not as athletically talented. The competitive nature of sports may also exclude many students from participation.

• Parents of school-age athletes go overboard when watching interscholastic contests. They often disrespect to student athletes and sometimes may attack other fans.

• These programs are too expensive. Interscholastic sports cost schools a lot of money in uniforms,coach salaries, transportation and equipment. With schools facing

They are an important part of education. Education is not just about the mind, but also physical. Physical education is good for you. It keeps you healthy. These things can also keep you fit for other areas of your education. A fit body can also help you to have a fit mind. It also good for schools to have a wide variety of subects, not just academic ones. Sports are also good for things that academic subjects can't really teach like teamwork, discipline, sportsmanship, fair play etc.

If sports weren't compulsory then children would never have a lesson to look forward to the most. Sports also keeps children who don't normally get to exercise outside of school fit.
