Sport is an aspect of educational activities that develops an individual in all ramification of life. It develops physically, emotionally, socially, recreationally, and promotes optimal health through participation in physical activities/games such as soccer, basketball, volleyball, swimming, cricket, hockey, handball, tennis, and athletics.
