Sports and Recreation – What is the Difference?

A sports movie is an exciting movie genre that often makes use of sports as the central theme of the movie. It’s a entertainment that relies on sport for its story inspiration or resolution, and usually to a very large extent to provide some sort of emotional impact. Sports movies are commonly made for a variety of different audiences. They can appeal to children, teenagers, the elderly, the middle aged and even the young. For any and every audience, a good sports movie is sure to entice and captivate them.

Children and teens are often attracted to sports for various reasons. Young people who love sports may be encouraged by coaches or parents to pursue a vocation that will keep them busy, healthy, and happy. Many times, young people like to play sports because they can be physically active and yet at the same time develop their social skills and personal qualities. There are many who find sports and extreme activities such as skydiving, surfing, snowboarding, rock climbing or anything else that involves extreme physical fitness as their form of self-discovery.

Teenagers and young people generally view sports and games as things that are for fun. In contrast to adults who view sports and games as serious undertakings that require great exertion and mental stamina, teens and young people tend to view sports as things that require skill and exertion only in the sense of having fun. Teens and young people also tend to see sports and games as being a competition rather than a race. This is because they don’t place great emphasis on the distance covered, the amount of training required, how hard they have to work or how skilled the competitor is.

Sports may involve physical activity and skill. The definition of a game can be based on many things but in general terms a game can be defined as an event wherein participants attempt to achieve some objective i.e. reaching a target in the course of an event (i.e. winning the sporting competition) by using any number of strategies.

Many people wrongly assume that sports are exercises. Physical fitness is not the main reason why one participates in a sports activity but rather skill, strategy and endurance. A player who fails to improve his/her motor skills often fails to become competitive. Competitors usually use various tactics to beat each other and this involves physical as well as mental skills. Therefore, people need to understand the difference between sports and recreation.

The definition of a sport can be misleading as some activities such as horse riding, canoeing and aerobics do not involve physical activity and are thus categorized as recreational sports. Physical fitness is an important factor in competitive gaming. But the important factor is skill and strategy. If one wants to succeed in a game, one needs to possess the mental and physical qualities necessary for success. This will help one develop personal strengths which will be useful in achieving a common goal.
