Sports Academy in Guwahati

As like the proverb – ‘all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’, it is also true that mental work out and no physical exercise leads to a poor health. For the overall development of a child, it is important to have both physical and mental exercise and sports is a wiser option for that. Earlier people in Guwahati and the State seemed to go opposite to this. Whenever a child was not good at studies, parents sent them for sports or for the cultural field as a secondary option.The scopes and facilities related to sports were not very well developed in the city.

Presently, the scenario has totally changed. Parents, as well as kids, are taking sports seriously. Along with the increment of medium for learning sports and to exhibit the talent, the interest of people is also growing. In most of the schools, colleges and other educational institutions in the city, sport is now a compulsory lesson. Moreover, students go to sports academies in Guwahati after schools and on weekends and they have become competitive too. Large spaces or wide open fields are no more available in city areas for children to play on their own or have fun with friends. In such situations, sports academies in Guwahati provides the option for the kids to go play in the outdoor. At the same time, they can concentrate on one game and have expertise in that. Kids prefer to go to sports academies after schools and on weekends and also on holidays.

In this digital world everything has been digitized and sports is no exception. Along with video games, kids can also play football, cricket, volleyball, badminton inside a small room on a displayed screen with friends. In the whole process, their eyes get stressed. It may help the children to utilize their brain but it does not at all help in good blood circulation of the body which is immensely important for physical fitness. A good blood circulation indeed helps in good mental health. In order to have both mental and physical work out, going to a sports academy is a must. The same is seen to have been implemented in the city and as a result, children are taking sports seriously for all over development.

Sports, as a career is a road that is less traveled and less chosen by students. But with the developing mediums, scopes and facilities in the field of sports in India, it is seen nowadays, kids have taken sports as a career goal. Students who have already made career or those who are exploring it can definitely relate and feel, that they have made or making all the difference. Furthermore, most of the colleges and universities have the system of sports quota where some of the seats are reserved for the students having good records in sports category. This encourages students to take and include sports seriously along with their academics.
