Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Interscholastic athletics has long been an integral part of the American educational system. Gholson (1985) found that students believe they gain immediate and long-term personal benefits from their participation in the cocurricular activity program. Many believe athletic participation in high school is a valuable educational experience in itself, every bit as important to the student's development as the classroom experience. Jaekel (1985) reported that student activities have become an accepted part of a total school program. There are also indications that success in college and later life comes from participation in student activities.
