Extra Curriculars

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Athletes do better in school on average than non-athletes. You don’t have to be on a team, but you should be active. It’s good for your body including your brain function. It’s good for your self-image and self-confidence. If you are on a team of some kind, it makes you become a better time manager. (note: many of the same arguments can be applied to serious musicians or other types of performance)

Also, kids who do extra stuff outside of academics such as speech and debate, journalism, student body, etc, do much better than the typical student.
