There is a lot of emphasis on kids being active these days. On average, children who are physically fit and play team sports do better in the classroom. A recent study conducted by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) investigated the link between physical activity in children and academic performance in school. They interviewed 214 children of middle school age. The study, reported in ACSM’s official journal, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise that while kids do better in school when they are active, the best performing students reported their exercise comes from extra curricular activities not associated with school ie hockey and soccer clubs and mountain bike riding.
