The cultural riches of Africans opened a wide avenue for recreation after day?s thrill. Recreation as well as physical exercises being under taken by an average man during cultural festivals like dance acrobatic and gymnastic displays, are often done for enjoyment and refreshment. Omorun (1996) opined that, in traditional African society, the child jumps, climbs a tree or mountain, rides a horse or donkey, dances or sings and also performs balancing acts because his siblings or elders or elders do such. Every child discovers his lines and their uses. Thus, through playing games, sports and traditional religious festivals, the African child develops physical, emotional, aesthetic and social assets, which will serve him in good stead when he grows. In Nigerian, despite the fact that our ancestors were mainly wonderers which was predominantly rural with few urban area settlements. The community life was relatively peaceful, social relationship was symbolic and there was less stress. There lots of avenue for releasing tension and relaxing through traditional festivals, moonlight stories, meeting at the village square. They did hunt, dance , wrestle, fishing, swim and play various type of games during their leisure to become well adjusted (Ipinmoroti, 2004) The fast growing amount of leisure true in Nigeria also underscores the need for recreational pursuit. Critcher Bramham and Tomlinson (2001) believed that, it is through the leisure of the society that citizens express their real personalities, more so, it is the major determinant of their life consciousnesses a basis for adoption of value and attitude that influence their behavior in order aspect of life. Critter, et al (2001) further argued that, the result of increased leisure that is not properly utilized can manifest in various societal problems ranging from idleness, violence, alcoholism, drug abuse and other related vices.
