Technically, anything where “players” play in a “game” is a game. (i.e. football, baseball). A sport is something that tests the peformance of an individual (running, hunting, boxing.)
Well, if they’re considered a sport then they get safety regulations and funding from the school…
I don’t understand why it’s so hard for people to understand that the definition of a sport is something that takes skill and physical exertion and where you compete. it’s not that hard to understand.
