Study Shows that High School Sports Increase College Grad Probability

High School Girls Soccer

I have long been a supporter of sports for kids of all ages, but there is a new study that reinforces one of the most positive benefits of sports. Researchers at BYU have just released a study that reports that women who participated in high school sports are 41% more likely to be college grads as well.

In my opinion, sports help teach girls (and boys) some of the same life skills that are essential to success in college, including:

  • Time management
  • How to deal with success
  • How to deal with disappointment
  • Persistence
  • Self esteem
  • Team work
  • The benefits of a good work ethic

Getting girls involved in sports as children is a great investment in their future!
