The Need  for more action to be taken towards revamping and  invigorating School Sports for a functional Community ,has been advocated for by the Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices (POCACOV)..This was disclosed by the National Coordinator Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices (POCACOV) CSP Ebere Amaraizu on 27/1/2023 while reacting on the benefits of School Sports for young minds to thrive for a functional community .
According to Amaraizu ,studies and survey conducted by the POCACOV Resource Centre Enugu, revealed that most young minds advance to pathways of Membership of Unlawful Societies (CULTISM),other Vices,Serious and Organized Crime(SOC) /Organized Criminal Groups (OCGs) due lack of positive coping Skills and Showing of resilience,Strategic and Critical thinking amongst others which usually make them vulnerable to be coerced or deceived into identifying with these organized criminal groups.Sports is veritable tool to achieving positive coping skills ,mental and physical health being  which is crucial towards young person growth and development as a prospective leader.It also help to inculcate the right values,discipline and standard because sports is an activity undertaken under strict discipline with values and standard.


Most Athletes of the olden days were selected through School Sports Activities which also serve as a hub of talent discoveries and development and their eventual turning into National Assets.Amaraizu however decried the dwindling fortune of school Sports in our society and call for stringent action aimed at reinvigorating school sports activities at all levels to help transmit Olympic  Value Education of Excellence ,Respect and Friendship on young minds so that they can thrive and for a functional Community and disclosed that POCACOV  Resource Centre in partnership with its stakeholders such  as ASTRIC,ALIS and UNLOKK SOI  are developing a module of engagement on school sports development and Community/Rural sports for a functional Community.


School Sports Activity and its constant participation by young minds will help to enthrone orderliness in mind,body and spirit and above all ,takes them into the world of building of team spirits,accountability ,dedication ,leadership and other positive life coping skills which will help them thrive for a functional community .Young minds are equally  exposed to the world of problem solving skills through effective communication and building of team work as well as increasing their health decision making such as non indulgence into substance and drug abuse and not seeing violence as an option to the greater height.From this ,you can see that the Enormous  benefit of school sports cannot be overemphasized hence the need for more action and recruitment of games masters who are professionals in physical and health Education and to increase the number of days and  allocated to school sports.This can be achieved by constantly reviewing school curriculum by the ministry of education to give more days and time to sports and also to ensure that sports facilities in schools meet the required standard .
