Influence of Involvement in Sports on Students’ Involvement in Academic Activities at Ndejje University

J Bagaya, B Sekabembe

Abstract


This study was carried out to establish whether students’ involvement in sports activities affected their involvement in academic activities. Data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire and analysed using percentages and means. Spearman’s correlation coefficient was used to test the hypotheses that guided the study. The findings showed that there is no significant relationship between students’ involvement in outdoor sports activities and their involvement in academic activities. However, there was a significant negative relationship between students’ involvement in indoor sports activities and their involvement in academic activities.
