Participating in Boys High School Athletics Can Benefit Your Student in Many Ways

At Fordham Preparatory School, we encourage students to explore extracurricular activities, including sports. There are many ways this can benefit your son. For one thing, colleges look favorably on students who pursue a variety of interests outside of academics. Participating in boys high school athletics can bring about many other positive outcomes as well.

  • Physical Health: Adolescence is one of the most developmentally important times in a child's life. Participating in high school sports can help students establish and maintain healthy routines that follow them throughout their lives. Men who participate in boys high school athletics tend to have better mental health, fewer instances of habits such as smoking and drinking, and reduced chance of conditions such as obesity or type 2 diabetes. 
  • Leadership and Teamwork: Leadership, mentorship, and collaboration are all major benefits of participating in boys high school athletics. Acting as part of a team teaches important soft skills such as empathy, understanding, appreciation, and leadership. This creates a more positive and collaborative environment that benefits the school as a whole in addition to our individual students. 
  • Time Management: Participating in a sport will teach your son the importance of properly managing his time. Between studying, preparation work, practices, and games, student athletes learn to balance different obligations and fit them into their busy schedules. This is excellent preparation for college and professional life down the road.
  • Improved Academics: Several studies have indicated that students who participate in high school athletics tend to see positive academic results. Many of the skills your son learns on the playing field will translate directly to academic skills at the collegiate level and even beyond.
