EXERCISE C

Benefits of Team Games

A movement against inter-school fixtures is gathering momentum and its advocates have mustered some cogent arguments. There is a place for individual sports, but they must remain subordinate to team games for moral and philosophical reasons.

Team sports induce discipline in an individual: initially imposed, it becomes self-discipline-cooperation underpinned by regular physical training. In some cases such strength, and its consequent moral uplift, can prevent an otherwise prevalent tendency to delinquency.

Team sports also create pride and a sense of the school as a genuine community; these often blossom into a wider response from the town, which has social and material benefits. Staff-student relationships also benefit through greater mutual involvement and understanding; so as a result does school discipline. And team sports are much cheaper to effect than all individual sports.
