Sports in contemporary society
Author(s): Dr. Shrikant S Mankar
Quality physical education programs are needed to socialize the youth into the total education process and also increase the physical competence, health-related fitness, self-responsibility and enjoyment of physical activity for all students so that they can be physically active for a lifetime. Physical education and sports programs can only provide these benefits if they are well-planned and well-implemented. The physical educator recognizes the essence of sports in his quest of humaneness, and he accepts the current barriers that now block his envisioned ideal about sports as a challenge. His thrust at the cutting edge of this frontier does not leave him uniquely alone in his quest and do not isolated him from other disciplines. There must be an integration and a synthesis of many approaches to socialization through sports, but while other disciplines may well contribute to the evolution of the sports ideal, the application of this process will ultimately be left to the educator and the physical educator who organizes, administers, and teaches the sports curriculum, should design his activities accordingly.
