Bridging The Gap
The benefits of being a student athlete.

The benefits of being a student athlete.

Learning life lessons are common throughout high school. Whether it’s inside a classroom or doing activities outside of school, they keep the knowledge they have gained with them for years. A lot of these lessons can be taught through sports. These lessons teach student-athletes how to collaborate and work as a team, they teach them that nothing is ever earned without effort put in, and make athletes realize the importance of practice.

One of the many life lessons that high school sports can teach teenagers is exactly how to represent their community. Student-athletes will learn to act and speak in a way that would shine a positive light on their school. This directly connects to how the teens will live out their lives.

“Last season, we played a 14- inning game against Spruce Creek,” Junior Kendall Walsh of varsity softball said. “After a tough loss, we had to show them sportsmanship. This was not all that easy considering we were all tired and disappointed, but I was proud of my team for that.”

The competition that comes with sports can form a friendly rivalry between cities and schools, keeping the competition alive. The team captain or not, high school sports provide students a chance to develop leadership skills that they might not have obtained without them. The upperclassmen value their time playing at a higher level of competition but also value the teachable moments for the players under them. Uniquely, athletics can supply many teachable moments. A tough loss, a buzzer-beater, the rush of adrenaline after a big win.
