The Benefits of Sports For Kids and Teens
A sports movie is an independent film genre which makes use of sport as the main theme of the movie. It’s a fictional creation in which a fictional sport, fictional athlete, or fan of a fictional sport are heavily involved, and that rely heavily on sport for their plot resolution or overall motivation. Although the audience will have a firm affinity towards the subject matter, it’s considered by many to be an indulgent form of entertainment. It’s not widely accepted outside of a certain niche of film-going communities, and there are often serious discussions about the subject.
The plots of most sports stories revolve around some type of competition between rivals, whether its a traditional sports tournament, a street race, or a personal competition between two rivals with different physiques. The competition takes place due to an element of skill, exertion or sheer strength, where the contestant needs to overcome their own ability, physical strength, athleticism, speed, etc to win. The sports in question can be highly competitive or highly casual, but the competition inevitably involves some level of exertion or energy.
There are three distinct forms of competition when it comes to sports, each with their own style of play and competition. One form is purely physical skill, where there is no skill involved at all, and the winner simply needs to ‘nip’ someone in the bud to win. This is the classic competitive sports where, for instance, boxing matches are usually won by knockout. Another form is mental or’strategizing’ skill. This can include such things as ‘focusing’ to win a chess match, or’reading’ one’s opponent’s mind to try and figure out their next move. And then there’s the’social game’ forms of competition, such as football which often involves a lot of communication between players.
In most forms of competitive eating, though, there is some element of skill involved in deciding who will win. In most forms of football, for instance, unless you score a hat trick, you’re not going to be known as the league’s greatest player. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a good time, eat well, be a bit competitive with your friends and enjoy yourself. It’s just that in most cases, you’re dealing with a group of people who have a common interest, and that means that there is skill in how you interact with each other.
Sports also allow us to use our body in a variety of ways that we might otherwise never be able to do in most other situations. Think about the obvious physical exertion required of certain kinds of wrestling or boxing. Even the smallest of movements have to be considered, for instance when you’re taking a punch or delivering a blow to another person’s face. Not everyone enjoys doing this, but that’s because most people simply don’t like having their arms or legs directly touching the ground.
Then there are the mental and social benefits of being actively involved in sports. Quite simply, it keeps you from being a couch potato at home watching television. If you have a favorite sport, you’re more likely to make time for it. And even if you don’t follow the game regularly, you’ll discover that there is plenty of mental stimulation involved as well. There’s always something to be said for engaging in a physical activity that helps improve your mental activities as well.
