This study examined gender, participation in sport and academic achievement of Israeli high school students. The study examined the academic achievement of those who participated in competitive or non-competitive sport and those who did not participate in sport. Results indicate that female athletes who participated in competitive sport attained higher levels of academic achievement than their male counterparts, whereas males who participated in non-competitive sport achieved higher levels of academic achievement than their female counterparts. Female athletes who participated in competitive sport attained higher levels of academic achievement than females who participated in non-competitive sport or did not participate in sport. In contrast, male athletes who participated in competitive sport attained lower levels of academic achievement than males who participated in non-competitive sport or did not participate in sport.
