Sports are important because they allow members of society to see the way that following rules can lead to a victory, and they also give people the opportunity to compete against each other in a low tension environment. Sports can be an outlet for people when they are dealing with aggression, but they can also be an instrument for people who need to have structure in their lives.

Sports combine the elements of physical fitness, competition and the ability to win at something when all of the regulations are followed. People who play sports can expect to be physically challenged by the demands that the sports put on them. They can expect to run and jump while getting aerobic exercise. They also expect a certain level of healthy competition. This is important for people who want to win at things; they need to understand how a traditional competition works. Sports are made up of various rules and regulations. Players and coaches are expected to follow these rules while umpires and referees are expected to enforce these rules at all times. The rules of the game make them more suspenseful and prevent one team from having an unfair advantage over the other team.
