EFFECTS OF SPORTS ON STUDENTS

Purpose of the Study to discover if playing sports in school actually enhanced students’ learning or if playing sports in school cause student’s academic achievement to decline? Were student’s grades stable or did they increase or decrease?

Expected Contributions of This Study School leaders, guidance counselors, teachers, coaches, and parents should find the results of this study, to see if the demands of being a scholastic athlete links positively or negatively to academic achievement at the post graduate level

Many times administrators and teachers often feel that playing sports negatively affects their scholastic achievement. However, it has been found in extant literature that not only has sports engagement has positive affect on student’s academic achievement. Literature has shown that students who play sports are actually exercising their brain and learning valuable skills that are transferable to school work.

Results: Over 90% of the participants stated that they were never involved in team sports while they attended secondary school. The only sports played by any of the participants were played on weekends.

One participant did swim on a swim team while attending secondary school.

When asked what participants did after school, the most common answer was READING!!!

DiscussionIn regards to the hypothesis of this study, the results will have to be considered inconclusive. Only one student actually played on a sports team in Secondary school but that student did state that their grades were in no way effected during the time they were playing sports. There was no negative or positive effect on grades.

Consideration for Future ResearchFurther study should be done involving participants that are not part of a doctoral program. Further study on doctoral students may also be useful if the doctoral students are not receiving their degree in Education
