“Participation in athletics, from Division I to intramural, teaches students critical life skills like leadership, teamwork, loyalty, commitment, perseverance, and time management. It fosters healthy habits and provides stress release. It forges friendships, inspires connections, and sparks school sprit that can last a lifetime.”
