LESSON 11 P1 --- Sports and Games


Dear Students: This site is developed for your help and guidance. We will appreciate your comments & feed back. Soon we will add other subjects to this site. Thanks

SPORTS AND GAMES
All schools and colleges organize extra curricular activities like plays, drama, debates, sports and games for their students. Extra curricular activities are those activities which are outside the regular course of studies. These activities are good and healthy for the mind and the body. Mere literary and academic life is not necessary. The students should know the realities of life as they exist. The ideal of a good and perfect life is to have a sound mind in a sound body. Body and mind should work their best and they cannot do their best unless both are in good order.

.
The proper end of games is bodily health and physical fitness. Greeks were the earliest people who introduced the marathon race and many other sports. In the past, hunting and fishing used to be mainly utilitarian in purpose. These sports were used to get food. With Greek Civilization, sports came to be looked upon as a means of building up the body and mind. The Greeks excelled in shaping the human body. The famous Olympic Games held every fourth year are a proof of the importance of sports and exercise.
.
Sports and athletics are now considered an essential feature of human activity. While sports give shape and strength to the body they also instill the spirit of discipline and team work. The discipline that gained in games makes for a life of cooperation and team work which in turn are important in society and in nation building.
.
Apart from making the body, limbs and muscles strong, games and sports teach how to use the energy in the right way. There are different kinds of games for different age groups. Children play running, hide and seek or they play on swings, merry go rounds or slides. The School going children have P.T. classes in which they are taught easy exercises to keep the young bodies flexible.
.
Young boys play basketball and volley ball. Girls play net ball which is played on the schools courts. These games make the body muscles strong.
Some of these games and sports are played at national level. Some players qualify to play at international level.
.
On thing must be kept in mid that the spirit of games and sports is not to win only. Games also teach us to practice, tolerance, honesty, dignity and other moral values.
