This study explores the correlation between college sports activities and academic performance. Using questionnaire surveys and data analysis methods, a comprehensive investigation was conducted among college students from different disciplines. The results indicate that students who regularly participate in sports activities generally outperform those who do not participate in sports activities in terms of academic performance. Particularly, students engaged in team sports demonstrate outstanding performance in teamwork and time management skills, which are positively correlated with academic performance. Additionally, the study finds that sports activities significantly influence students' self-efficacy and stress management skills, thereby indirectly enhancing academic performance.
