"Number one is just to gain a passion for running. To love the morning, to love the trail, to love the pace on the track. And if some kid gets really good at it, that’s cool too"

Pat Tyson - Athletics Coach



The idea that sports redirects certain natural human tendencies towards aggression and competition is as old as civilization itself. The Olympic Games were a formalization of this pseudo-aggression to create cooperation between cultures and nations.

Although sports have gradually become independent entities in themselves and their cultural binds have become weaker or thinner while their recreational, entertainment and entrepreneurial ties have become stronger or tighter with entire industries growing up around such activities, still, as a common, non-threatening, integrating, harmonizing instrument, there are few other human efforts that compare well against sports.That sport promotes peace is therefore obvious and the very reason why it came into being and became an integral part of human civilization.


Simultaneously, and equally importantly, sports enable children towards healthier and more wholesome lifestyles. A healthy child is the foundation of a healthy nation that is capable of lifting itself up by its own bootstraps and creates the best possible environment for a well-balanced society able to hold itself firmly over the long term to strong value systems. This, above all other reasons is why Steiner Learning considers sport to be its de-facto foundation for enabling well rounded and socially skilled students.
