2) Apply the information above into a table.
3) Think about how your sports benefit the three different categories (physical, social and mental) - add it to the bottom of your table in a different colour.
Physical activity is just any form of exercise or movement; planned or unplanned...hockey club or running for the bus!
Exercise is any physical activity you do to improve or maintain your health and/or fitness.
1) FRIENDS - Doing physical activity can help you make friends with people of different ages and backgrounds. It might also just be a way of socialising with your current friends.
2) COOPERATION AND TEAMWORK - By taking part in team activities like netball and hockey you have to learn how to cooperate and work with other people.
1) FEELING GOOD - As you do physical activity, your body releases more of a hormone called serotonin into your blood stream. Serotonin is the 'happy hormone'.
2) STRESS RELIEF - Doing physical activity can help relieve stress and prevent stress-related illnesses.
3) SELF-ESTEEM - Taking part in a physical activity can increase your self-esteem, and confidence.
4) COMPETITION and PHYSICAL CHALLENGE - Physical activity can challenge you and drive you to do the best you can. It can also improve how you think and act under pressure.
1) HEALTH - You can maintain or improve your health with regular physical activity. You reduce your chances of getting ill, and can increase your life expectancy.
2) FITNESS - You can increase your strength, endurance, flexibility and overall fitness.
3) PERFORMANCE - The more you do an activity the better you will get at it!!
Development of Friendships and Social Mixing
Many sports are played in teams. Working in groups helps to improve teamwork and cooperation, which are often necessary in everyday life. Netball, football, rugby and hockey are all good examples of team sports where it is important to support and encourage your team-mates.
Competition can be thought of as psychological (mental) both in terms of the psychological preparation necessary to compete and in terms of getting away from the stresses of life. When competing most people put aside their problems and concentrate on doing well in their sport.
Coming back to sport after a long time away, perhaps as an adult who has not taken part since leaving school, or taking on a seemingly impossible task, allows for a physical challenge which can be very satisfying. The London Marathon is a good example because the challenge it offers is often the most striking memory for those who take part for fun.
Moments in sport are sometimes beautiful; beauty may be seen in a brilliantly executed goal or save in hockey, a try in rugby, a smash in badminton or a passing shot in tennis. Often it is the spectator who appreciates the performer, although hitting a good shot in hockey can feel brilliant; sometimes the performer knows when something just feels right. Sports such as gymnastics or ice dancing are often thought of in these terms.
Taking part in exercise or sport at school or club means involvement with other people, including other players, coaches/trainers and officials. Participants get to know more people, make new friends and develop lasting friendships.
Training along can be lonely and requires motivation and discipline. Many clubs are run by volunteers and have a strong social side.
