why sports matter

I’ve always participated in sports. I was the eldest of six kids and I can always remember playing games and sports outside. During school, I played every sport that was possible. I loved the team aspect of volleyball, soccer and basketball but also enjoyed the challenge of the individual sports like track and field, badminton and golf.

I was a student who needed sport to make it through school.

For most of my career, I worked with students and strongly recommend that they get involved some way or another with a sport or fitness – just for their well-being.

Everyone should take some time for themselves outside of school, work and other commitments.
