Sports is a very important part in education system, but today some schools don’t even have playgrounds, sports helps to keep the student fit both physically and mentally, when a person playing any sport, his or her mind focused entirely in the game alone, it helps them to have a dedication to winning and also encourage them to try harder, sports train people(student) to be focused in a single point at a time and also help them stay strong and fit.
