3. Have fun
High school is all about learning to strike a balance. If you spend all your time studying, you might have stellar grades, but you probably won’t be happy. Participating in a high school sports team can help you take the time you need to have fun and stop worrying about schoolwork. Whether you are running up and down the basketball court or trying to beat your best time in a swim competition, you will learn to relax and focus on the game. Making time for fun activities can also help you manage your study schedule. When you learn to balance your fun activities with schoolwork, you’ll be better able to plan ahead, and you’ll feel less stressed as a result.
High school sports help many girls survive high school. Joining sports teams not only allows young women to make solid friendships, learn respect, and have fun, but sports programs also help high school girls learn how to integrate an active, healthy lifestyle into their busy study schedule. Participating in high school sports can ultimately help girls develop into respectful, healthy young women.
