PE contributes to higher participation in sports


The many benefits of physical education continue to grow.  A recent study by the Physical Activity Council shows that students who do not receive PE are more that twice as likely to be totally sedentary outside of school.

On the other hand, students who receive Physical Education are two to three times more likely to participate in sports and be active outside of school.

Clearly what happens in physical education can have a profound effect on the childhood obesity crisis which has linked inactivity as a pervasive problem.


the Physical Activity Council of 40,000 Americans shows children who do not have physical education PAC logo(P.E.) are more than twice as likely to be totally sedentary outside of school.  And, children who have physical education are two to three times more likely to be play sports and be active outside of school than children without physical education.  - See more at: http://www.phitamerica.org/News_Archive/PE_Ignites_Sports_Participation.htm#sthash.b9t0FeTZ.dpuf
