10. Cheerleader â€“ Does this qualify as sports? Ask a cheerleader this question and come back without getting punched in the face… no really, being a cheerleader is no less than participating in the actual sport. Also, it is very healthy as the activity involves a lot of exercise, jumping all the time â€“ this can surely qualify as an active sport.
An active sport does not necessarily mean competition, playing it actively and regularly is more important. Build a community around your sports and make social friends while playing the sport you love. This way, you will improve your mental health alongside your physical health.
