Sports and civics.
However, I found this statement from the researchers to be somewhat comical: "The researchers were not able to draw any direct conclusions as to why student athletes were more engaged in their community, and considered the possibility that people who choose to do sports might naturally be more inclined to participate in civic affairs." The answer is probably much more complicated than what I believe, which is to say that people (coaches, teachers and parents) are responsible for teaching these life principles to those kids.... We all realize that they are our future, and we strive to help produce the best possible person.
