THE ROLE OF SCHOOL SPORT IN SELECTING AND GUIDING SPORTS TALENT AT THE PRIMARY LEVEL IN ALGERIA
School sport is one of the main activities adopted by educational institutions from the very beginning. It is a common mistake that many regrettably espouse that school or educational places are merely a means of education and that their mission is confined to this scope and must not go beyond it. School sport is the primary driver of progress in the sports field and is perhaps one of the most important pillars of the sports movement. This school sport is mainly directed towards primary school pupils. It works to set the first steps for the child on the road to becoming a prominent athlete in the future that may contribute to building national school teams. The pupil needs sports during his school day in order to regain his activity and perform a class even for a few minutes of subjects, classes and studies. Sports greatly benefit him in being able to regain his activity both mentally and physically. This attention is based on the great role of school sport as a fundamental pillar of national sport with great influence in the development of the mental and motor capacities of the child, hence the formation of the best athletes to strengthen the national elite, as school sport is the reservoir of young talent, so educators must recognize the importance of school sport especially in the primary stage.
