ABSTRACT

This study assessed sports participation in relation to academic achievement of form

four students and suggests possible ways of improving academics through sports.

The study mostly used quantitative supplemented by qualitative approach. Promoting

achievement through sport theory guided this study using the participants selected

from the five schools in Dodoma City. A total of 290 respondents from different

categories were involved in the investigation. Data were collected through interviews

guidelines, observation checklist, documentary review and questionnaire (likert

scale).On the other hand, qualitative data were analyzed using thematic analysis

while quantitative data were analyzed by statistical package for social sciences

(SPSS 16 version). The findings of the study show that the status of sports in

secondary schools was poor, there was unavailability of sport resources, poor

motivation, lack of intra and inter sports schools competitions, more boys were

participating more in sports than girls and inappropriate use of sports allocated time.

Also, it was revealed that there is association between sports participation and

academic achievement, significant difference between sports students and non-sports

students. Generally, this study recommends that the government should prepare and

buy sports equipment, train sports teachers and coaches, also utilize sports time as

required.
