Does Playing A Sport Affect Your Schoolwork

By

Many arguments could be made concerning whether or not playing a sport affects your grades. Well, we have many athletes in Chartiers Valley. To further expand, we have many athletes in Chartiers Valley that play a sport and do very well in school, and many athletes that play a sport and do very poorly in school. To add to that we also have many people in Chartiers Valley that do exceptional in school and do not play a sport, and many students in Chartiers Valley that do very awful in school and do not play a sport. So what factors in this argument would be a correlation in how students are doing in school? According to the survey I have taken of the students in my Newspaper class, 60 percent of students say playing a sport does have a correlation to their grades and does affect it whether its negatively or positively. Also 40 percent of my class states that playing a sport has no affect and no correlation with their schoolwork. According to senior editor Kenzi Sinclair, “playing a sport affects my grades and my life skills positively because it teaches me better time management for the real world.” Many other students reasoning for how playing a sport affected their school work was that it keeps them motivated to not fail their classes to be able to participate in their sports. For the students who claimed that playing a sport affected them negatively, they said that during their sport season they never have enough time to complete their work because their main focus was sports. Therefore the majority of students demanded that playing a sport did affect their school work, whether it be positively or negatively ,and the minority of students claimed it just did not affect their schoolwork at all.
