I think you are miss-led on the reasoning behind the teachings of teamwork in sports. Sports do not only teach teamwork. Kids have an alternative way of learning discipline, commitment, the purpose of preparation (6 P’s = Prior Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance), hard work, dedication, pride in self, in family, in leaders, etc. If sports are used correctly in high school, they can create a feel of comradery with in a community, which I think everyone is starting to see, that is something our nation has been lacking since the 40’s & 50’s.
In sports, teamwork is a combination of all the above; and yes, it is used as a method of beating the opponent. Just like a business uses teamwork strategies to outperform their competitors, just like college study groups use teamwork to pass their mid-terms & finals, just like armies use teamwork to survive & protect the things their countries believe in, just like families going through struggles come together to overcome and survive.
