physical training daily . Such process should involve vigorous activity during 10-15 minutes daily . It is apparent that sport is available in public schools , although not all children like to attend these classes (National Standards

It is necessary to design such physical activity for students which will firstly meet required standards and secondly arouse interest among children . The most interesting and exciting activity is school sports competitions , because they involve many kinds of physical activity and develop team spirit in participants . School competitions will involve all students who are physically fit and also who are weaker . The competitions will last two days and embrace different activities . The first day will pass through l team games such as basketball , volleyball for girls and football for boys . The second day will process through team competitions devoted to running : long-distance races , sprints running on the spots , high jump and standing (running ) broad jump

It is necessary to explain why such physical activity is chosen . The first reason is that students will demonstrate their competency in different movement forms and their proficiency in selected ones . The second reason is that during team activities students will demonstrate team spirit , responsible social and personal behavior . The last reason is that students are taught in such way to understand and to respect differences among students with different physical abilities (National Standards
