It is a useful means of entertainment and physical activity. Sports and games help in character building. They give us energy and strength. Sports and games are means of mental and physical growth. During sports we come to learn many things. We learn how to maintain mental balance in the midst of hopes and despair. They make us learn how to tackle the difficult situation. Sports develop a sense of friendliness. They develop in us team spirit. They help in developing mental and physical toughness. They shape our body and make it strong and active. They give us energy and strength. They remove tiredness and lethargy. They improve blood circulation. This improves our physical well-being. Sports and games improve our capability. They improve our efficiency. Either study or work alone makes us exhaust. We remain no longer efficient to do any work. Sports remove our mental exhaustion. Sports are integral part of education. Education without sports is incomplete. Keeping their value in life, children are taught some sorts of games in the very early stage in school. These days’ sports are a part of academic curricula. Sports are particularly important for the youth. They help in their physical and mental growth. They contribute in the formation of character. They inculcate in them good values.

...An essay on Sport The issues involving Sport has been a popular topic amongst scholars for many years. I find my self constantly drawn back to the subject of Sport. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, there are just not enough blues songs written about Sport. It still has the power to shock those most reliant on technology, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of Sport. Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues. Social Factors Comparisons between Roman Society and Medieval Society give a clear picture of the importance of Sport to developments in social conduct. I will not insult the readers inteligence by explaining this obvious comparison any further. The immortal and indispensable phrase ‘honesty is the best policy’ [1] created a monster which society has been attempting to tame ever since. Much has been said about the influence of the media on Sport. Observers claim it raises the question 'why?' Some analysts have been tempted to disregard Sport. I haven’t. It is intrinsically linked to adolescent inner acclimatisation. Economic Factors Increasingly economic growth and innovation are being attributed to Sport. We will study the Lead-a-Duck-to-Water model. For those of you unfamiliar with this model it is derived from the Three-Amigos model but with greater emphasis on the outlying gross national product.

Strategies for E-Sports Events

...Introduction When we think of the term sports, the first things that come to our mind are Football or Basketball, which happen to be the most common televised sports, but we rarely give thought about what these sports have in common. In a sport, players assemble to participate in a competitive game against each other, demonstrating their skill and understanding of the game. Players dedicate lots of time into practicing and honing their skills, in hopes of outmaneuvering the opponents and earning the victory. Just like in normal sports, E-Sports is when players gather to compete invideo games. This may sound a bit ridiculous, but I assure you that there are many video games out in today's market which require a lot of skills to play competitively. Take a shooter game, like Call of Duty or Counter-Strike, for example, where it is critical for players to have the ability to aim at their target quickly, precisely and accurately, in order to stay alive and defeat the opponents. To gain these skills, the the teams needs get together often and practice game after game after game to coordinate their teamwork and skills. There are a number of leagues (more and more are popping out as the E-Sports community to grow) which host these games. One of the biggest league in America at the moment is the Major League Gaming(MLG), which happens every 1 to 2 months, and hosts a variety of games. Players and viewers gather from all over the world to attend these events. Other examples include...

...Sports today are the highlight of American life in a great majority of people. They are enjoyable whether you are playing them or watching them. This is the same all over the world. In some countries, a certain sport is the backbone or the main attraction. A majority of sports are played in the U.S. and in other countries but a great deal of them are only played in the U.S. Why is this? Is this because other countries have no interest in our sports? Is it that maybe countries are just unaware of U.S. played sports? Whatever the case may be, sports expansion would have a huge impact showing a sense of unity within countries. Though, certain cultural factors must be relinquished before integration can happen. ​​​​​​​​An introduction to the sport in other countries must be the first step in the integration process. People need an incentive to be transformed into a fan from a spectator. Seeing the sport will give people an opportunity to learn it and make a decision to determine if the sport is appealing to them (Ipatenco). I believe that before it is decided what sport to integrated into a country, research needs to be done to ensure that the sport is not offending to the country’s religion and beliefs (Hodgson). There are so many different cultures of world and we as Americans have to ensure that we are not intentionally “bashing” or demeaning a culture. Participation in the sport from other countries would be prosperous as well. In sports, hands on experience will......

...Sport (or sports) is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which,[1] through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.[2] Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals. Sport is generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting this definition,[3] and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding activities without a physical element from classification as sports.[2] However, a number of competitive, but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee (through ARISF) recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports,[4][5] although limits the amount of mind games which can be admitted as sports.[1] Sports are usually governed by a set of rules or customs, which serve to ensure fair competition, and allow consistent adjudication of the winner. Winning can be determined by physical events such as scoring goals or crossing a line first, or by the determination of judges who are scoring......

...E-Sports Should Video gaming be considered a sport? Jaime Vital Mr. Bollman EN1420 ITT Tech, Concord February 17, 2014 Should video gaming be considered a real sport? What does it take for a sport to be considered a real sport? How athletic they are? How much money they make or their fan base? In today’s society most people would not think twice about considering video gaming a real sport, but little do they know and huge wave of fans are proving them wrong. The scene is called E-Sports, the E standing for electronic. It is a term for organized video game competitions between professional gamers. The most popular game associated with E-Sports is League of Legends.

It was first announced on October 7 2008, and released on October 27 2009. League of legends has grown to a staggering 65 million players since release from over 145 countries.

...Elle Kloewer Mrs. Peterson College English 9 September 2014 Audience: American Teenage Athletes How Sports Benefit Life         She is sitting there, getting ready for the biggest game of her life. All her emotions are overwhelming her. This will be the last game she plays in a cyclone jersey this season. It all comes down to one play. Her only thoughts are to keep breathing, stay positive, and win. One rebound, that’s all the coach says as she leaves the huddle. Playing a sport is not just about the game itself, but a benefit in every aspect of life. Live life to the fullest, try new things, and enjoy every moment.         Health is one of the most important aspects of any sport. Staying physically fit as a teenager/ young adult is a priority to living a long healthy life. In the Harlan Community High School, a student must have a semester of physical education; however, they can bypass this by being involved in a full semester of sports. Athletes put in hours and hours of physical activity every week. Being physically fit is not only just about working out though. Eating healthy can make you that much more of a powerful athlete. Protein, fruits, and vegetables can help keep the body full of energy and power longer than any energy drink or power bar. Sports also increase your metabolism rates so you can eat more to keep your energy up. Having a high metabolisms allows your body to take in more food without gaining much weight. Your cardiovascular system will also be......

...groups and all the stages of the sports participation pyramid I am going to explain the barriers to participation from 3 different target groups at each stage of the sport development pyramid. My 3 target groups are Over 50s, Women and Young people. Over 50s is a target group because there is more over 50s playing sport now than ever before, this is because people are living longer and wish to keep fit and active. Young people is a target group because if people can get young kids active and give them a chance to do sport at a young age then it is more likely that they will carry on with sport and go up through the sports participation pyramid. Women is a target group because although traditionally women participate less in sport, the number of women in sport has gone up in the past few years. From 2005 to 2008 the overall women participating in sport went up from 2.57 Million to 2.81 Million (12.3% increase). Also more women are playing male dominated sport like Rugby and Football. Target group 1 – Over 50s At the foundation stage for Over 50s there is not any facility’s that will teach the basic skills for a sport. For most sports such as Crown green Bowling participants will go straight into the participation stage. In the participation stage for Over 50s a barrier would be cost of travel. If a person cannot drive then the cost of the buss maybe too much and if it is too far to walk the participant may have to stop playing that sport. Also the cost of......

...Robert Smith SOC 2340 September 11, 2015 E-Sports International Gaming is becoming more and more popular as new federations continue to pop up like MLG (Major League Gaming) and the International E-Sport Federation. Online competition has rapidly grown throughout the years, and continues to grow as technology grows. If e-sports have become this popular and more enjoyable to watch and play, then why are they not considered to be apart of the Olympic games? Do the Olympics fear for the future? Are they afraid that technology might take over sooner than they expected? I think that it is time the Olympic Games stop defining sports as only competitive games involving physical activity, and start letting technology and the future make history. I want to move the petition forward to make e-sports Olympic games and here is why. What do we think of when we think of sports? Fast paced activities involving lots of rigorous physical exertion, and very well practiced physical skills. I think that we sometimes look past other competitive activities solely because they do not involve physical activity. This is where e-sports come into play, and it may be hard to adapt to at first, because only the younger generation people will understand all of the new technology and games better than most older generation people. StarCraft 2, Dota 2, and League of Legends are all online competitive PC games, where millions of players online from around the world fight and compete with each other.......
