PLAY MORE THAN ONE SPORT
Multi - Sport Benefits
The athletic department and administration at Blanchester Local Schools promote playing as many OHSAA school sponsored sports as possible. The benefits of being a diverse athlete far out weight the potential benefits of specialization.
The benefits of multiple-sport participation include better leadership and teamwork skills from cross-training, reduced risk of burnout in one sport, a variety of experiences from involvement with different sports and teams, reduced risk of overuse injuries in one sport and exposure to a variety of coaching styles.
