Q.3. Specify the role of sociology in sports. How physical education programme leads to leadership and value education?




Role of Sociology in Sports:-

Sociology is derived out of Latin word “societus” meaning society and Greek word “logus” meaning study of science.  It means sociology is the science of society.

Definition of Sociology: - Sociology is the study of relationship of men with his environment.

Definition of Sports-Sociology:- Sports Sociology is the study of origin, development, organization and role of sports in human society.


Role of Sociology in Sports:

As Aristotle said “Man is a social animal.”  A child born, live in the family and home, go to the school, learn to adjust and develop himself socially. Sports activities are mostly group activities offering many opportunities for socialization and development of social qualities in individuals, the child plays with his peers, get acquainted with the behaviour of other children.  He learns language and various modes of movements like running, jumping, chasing, shouting, struggling etc.  Exchange of toys and words, feeling of giving and receiving.  In this way group play leads to socialization.  Through sociology athletes learns and develop qualities of co-operation and healthy competition.

Sociology leads to character development also.  Through sociology individual learns independence, confidence, solving problems with peers.  He also develops the qualities of friendship, popularity, mutual understanding and leadership.  In competitions the athletes learns to face odds, to be couraged, to be obedient, to be self confident etc.  One realizes through sociology that both competition and co-operation are important for all round development of an individual.  It helps physical education teachers to develop traits of social behaviour among players.  It helps in development of moral character of athletes.

Leadership and value Education

It is true that Physical Education programmes leads to leadership and value education, while playing every player try to prove his identity, whether it is an individual sport or  team event. Every player tries to show excellence to prove – The Best.  Best means the Leader.  Every player wants to perform so as to become leader of the team and in individual sport the player wants to win – to prove supremacy.  Or we can say winner is the leader.  There are some other activities like NCC, Scouts and Guides, Camping etc. that helps individual to learn new thing to survive and to spend the life with intelligence.


Through Physical Education and sports the individual become not only physically fit and mentally sound but also he develops essential values for life like – strong moral character, co-operation, forgiveness, self-respect, support, care belongingness, respect for seniors and teachers etc.  In present scenario it is observed that the students lack in values but with participation in games and sports they are likely to develop these values that help them become a good person and a responsible citizen.




Q3. “Games and sports as cultural heritage” Justify.




“Games and sports as Cultural Heritage”

Culture consists of the behaviour that individuals develop as a result of living in a particular group.  It is a way of life and a product of our social in heritance.  Our culture consists of our ways of living, eating habits, thoughts, customs, traditions, morals, art, literature, religion, games and sports and many other aspects of life.  Our modern culture is not a product of sudden change or development, but has been evolved over centuries  of the past.  It is therefore a sort of reflection of our past.  Therefore, games and sports of modern times are also indicators of the primitive times.  Such activities have been passed on to us by our ancestors and are therefore our cultural heritage. 

History of physical activities of man is as old as civilization itself.  Most of the activities of primitive men were of physical nature and were aimed to secure means of existence.  Activities included running, jumping, fighting, fishing and wrestling etc.


Such activities were essential for fighting enemies and procuring food.  However, with the passage of time and formation of groups and institutions, some games and dances were added for the purpose of enjoyment and recreation.  Games and sports activities of modern times are modified forms of the past activities of our ancestors and have been passed on to us as part of our cultural heritage.  Some of the items of modern sports competitions, such as boxing etc. originated in the past.


Our modern culture is a mixture of many cultures of the ancient world.  Many countries of the world have contributed in its evolution through their thoughts and practices.  In this respect, contributions of early Egyptians, Greeks, and countries of the west cannot be forgotten.  Most of the games and activities of today are the outcome of the contributions of these countries.


Gymnastic activities of modern times are the contribution of Germans.  Germany gave us heavy gymnastics apparatus like horizontal bar, vaulting horse and parallel bars etc..  The British are considered to be the originators of ball games.  They introduced games of football, hockey and cricket.  The British helped in spreading these games around the world.


America introduced games of volleyball, basketball and baseball.  There emphasis on physical fitness is worth admiring.


There are references of activities like archery, wrestling and games like “Shatranj” in Indian history from the times of Mahabharata.  There are also references of games like “Kabaddi” and “Kho-Kho” having been played in the past.  All such activities of the past are part of our physical activities today.


Thus, we can say that games, sports and other physical activities of modern times are not a creation of modern thought and practice, but are a legacy of our ancient culture.  We have simply modified these games and activities to refine them and suit our convenience.  In fact the cultural heritage of the past show us the methods of surviving in this changing world.
