This choice brings great benefits and pleasure because taking part in sport can contribute to good physical health, which in turn helps people to look and feel good.
Physical activity along with a good diet can help to prevent obesity, enabling young people to develop a positive body image. Physical challenges can increase personal fitness, raise self esteem and relieve stress and tension. Playing and competing with others also develops friendships, teamwork and co-operation.
