In the history of higher education, more and more universities take cultivating future leaders as one of the important tasks. Leadership education for college students is an important dimension of quality education for college students, an effective carrier of ideological and political education, and a rational demand of college students' lifelong development. With more scholars expanding the field of leadership research, the research of leadership education among college students has received extensive attention. Related research results are growing rapidly, the research content is expanding rapidly, and the research level is improving rapidly. Peter Drucker notes that the management is doing the right thing, and the leadership is doing the right thing. The critical period for leadership development is in college, where it begins to try and accept new things and learn new skills. Extracurricular sports activities are a relatively open and free form of physical exercise, so that when participating in extracurricular sports activities, it can better show the leadership cultivation of college students.
