Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Info:

SCA occurs suddenly and often without warning. It is triggered by an electrical malfunction in the heart that causes an irregular heartbeat. With the heart’s pumping action disrupted, the heart cannot pump blood to the brain, lungs, and other organs. Seconds later, a person loses consciousness and has no pulse. Death occurs within minutes if the victim does not receive treatment.

SDGVA participates in the Middle School YMCA Intramural programs for the following reasons: 

Self-Confidence Builder
Participating in any sport provides the opportunity to build your self-esteem. As a part of the team, the other members rely on you to play a certain role. Having this responsibility, and even just getting the opportunity to play can build confidence and self-esteem. Sports allow you to challenge yourself and attempt things outside your comfort zone. This confidence can carry into other areas of your life and make you a happier, healthier person.
 
Physical Fitness
The most important aspect of intramural sports is that it offers the opportunity to stay physically active. Being physically fit gives you a better body image and lowers the risk of obesity and other health problems. Research done by the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports shows that kids who participate in athletics are less likely do drugs and suffer from depression. Participating in athletics also decreases the likelihood of disease later in life, research shows.
 
Academic Performance
Many studies have shown that participation in athletics helps academic performance. Playing a sport teaches lessons about working hard and persevering, and most programs require a certain grade point average to participate. If you want to play a sport, you have to make the grade. The expectation to make good grades leads to good study habits that you can carry through the rest of your schooling. Students who participate in sports while growing up are often more likely to graduate from college.
