Get ready for loads of fun
"Sport helps young people to develop physical skills, make friends, improve their self esteem, and improve communication and academic ability. Some evidence suggests that youngsters who participate in sport are less likely to drop out of school."
This is a quote by an unknown person, but it seems to ring true.
