Burnsville High School students benefit in many ways from participation in athletics and activities. They learn teamwork, commitment and discipline. They gain confidence, make friends, acquire skills and contribute to their community. Students discover future careers and lifelong interests through their involvement. Most importantly, they learn so much about themselves.
Involvement in extracurricular activities allows you to learn life skills such as time management, communication, team work and networking. Additionally, your involvement can lead to leadership positions that not only look great on college applications, but can teach you skills like confidence, delegation and patience.
