Author(s): Dr. Vivek Solanki and Dr. Jyoti Solanki
Focusing upon the relationship between sports, physical education and education, this paper offers a review of the evidence related to the outcomes of the participation of children and young people in sports and physical education. Particular attention is paid on potential contribution that sports and physical education can make in achieving the aims of education. The review suggests that there is strong evidence that sports and physical education strongly influence educational achievements. There is a considerable amount of evidence in favor of positive relationship between sports, physical education and education. In general, however it is evident that much more empirical research is necessary if the benefits of sports participation for young people and children are to become much more than a theoretical aspiration.
