The Alisal Union School District Sports Program is for students in 3rd through 6th grades at all schools in the Alisal Union School District.
Sports and physical activities have many benefits for the body and mind. Some of these benefits include bone and heart health, decreased risk of obesity, improved sleep and better coordination and balance.
But playing sports is important beyond physical fitness. When children play sports they are part of a team, which encourages cooperation and sharing, resilience, goal-setting and building relationships. Learning to lose and persevere is an important life skill that’s often acquired through playing a sport.
