Students gain invaluable experiences in planning, decisive and assertive body language. Co-operation with each other, goal setting and commitment to shared team goals. They get an opportunity to show ownership, collaboration, and fairness. The most precious lessons that students learn from sports events are managing emotions.

They may experience frustration, sadness, and disappointment during the game. They cope with failure to celebrate the opponent’s victory. They become aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. Students face challenges and display feelings in group dynamics on the field. They learn that it is team synergy and not an individual skill that wins them the game.
