Student participation in sport offers experiential learning, that is physically active, enjoyable and developmentally appropriate. Integral to students’ involvement in sport is the acquisition of movement skills, concepts and strategies that enable students to participate in a range of physical activities confidently and competently. Sport provides students with the opportunity to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to support them to be resilient, to develop a strong sense of self, to build and maintain satisfying relationships, to make health-enhancing decisions in relation to their health and physical activity participation, and to develop health literacy competencies in order to enhance their own and others’ health and wellbeing.
