Abstract: Having gone through over 20 years of practice, the combination of physical education and cultural educa-tion has made some achievements, but it is still evidently utilitarian as extensively restrained by the system, its con-tents need to be enriched as well. The combination of physical education and cultural education is not only the solu-tion to the issue of cultural education for athletes, but also the realistic need for the comprehensive development of athletes, the healthy growth of teenagers, as well as the overall coordination and sustainable development of the physical education and cultural education undertaking. Therefore, we should get hold of physical education and cultural education development patterns, specify department responsibilities, clarify running mechanisms, innovate on working procedures, and build a physical education and cultural education combination assurance system.
Key words: school physical education；combination of physical education and cultural education；competitive sports；teenagers
