Common Japanese high schools have their sport clubs. After the classroom lectures, students work out in clubs, for instance, baseball club or tennis club. Unfortunately every year some died during sports club activities. According to Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, 318 fatal or severely damaged accidents happened during 1998-2009. "Severely damaged" means the accident by which the student lost his/her working ability. In other words, the student cannot work any more, due to the accident.
Here is the breakdown of the cases by sport.
Table : Number of accidents the students died or got severe damage in school sports club activities, by sport, 1998-2009
|Sport||Junior 1st grade||Junior 2nd grade||Junior 3rd grade||Senior 1st grade||Senior 2nd grade||Senior 3rd grade||Total|
Age of junior high 1st grade is 12 or 13 years old.
Age of senior high 3rd grade is 17 or 18 years old.
Next data shows the rate of fatal or severely damaged cases per 100,000 students, by sport.
|Sport||Rate per 100,000|
|Track and Field||0.55|
I do not think bicycle club and boxing club are common clubs in high schools. The data of those two might not be stable. Those might be exceptional cases. However it is easy to imagine that boxing is dangerous.
