Although it is tiresome I have to constantly spend around 3 hours practicing marching and playing my music every Mondays and Tuesday during summer and fall, the adrenaline rush made me more focused and on task. A single marching band practice is like a well-oiled machine. The routine is simple, our group either goes to the parking lot of the football field. Then, we practice playing and marching. Every once in awhile, we get 15 seconds to drink water.
You can practice soccer tactics by using group drills that work on skills and forcing players to make decisions swiftly in game-like situations. A good form of tactical practice is like playing a game with four attackers with three defenders. For such to be effective, the coach must give his signal and then they begin play. The focus is the four attackers attempting to score a goal with the three defenders attempting to stop them. During this training session, the coach can also use it to train them on the skills of how to dribble, when to pass and even the skill of shooting can be trained during this process.
Whether we cheer on our teammates or pass information like new defenses or offenses, we should never be quiet. Consequently, failure to communicate could result negatively. For example, we might have to run more in practices, in games the opponent may score, or a teammate could get hurt. Having the skill of communication, is the first step in teamwork. Being a group of individual players, a sense of unity has to be formed.
Yes, they can go get a job, but the truth is that they spent over 40 hours per week training. Therefore, their job is to train to be the best in their respective sport in order to maintain their “full ride” scholarship. Michigan State QB Kirk Cousins says, "This is where everyone says, 'OK, go get a job, well, I can only really work for the month of July, so that's difficult. What can I do for one month? Plus, I'm quite busy for 11 months and July is the one month where you catch your breath.''
Explosiveness is very essential in every athlete’s activity. Given that it is the key to a more effective strength, at some point it is also related to so called Plyometrics. Plyometrics was also known as the training for jumping. It was designed to develop the leaping ability or the vertical jump of an athlete. It was first introduced in Olympics and it became more prominent to all athletes most especially to those who use jumping as their main source of power.
TOUGH MUDDER: “Tough Mudder is a team-oriented 10-12 mile (18-20 km) obstacle course designed to test physical strength and mental grit. Tough Mudder puts camaraderie over finisher rankings and is not a timed race but a team challenge that allows participants to experience exhilarating, yet safe, world-class obstacles they won't find anywhere else.” (Tough Muddder, 2015) The Strategy & Integration: Tough Mudder runs weekly events across the Globe, with its primary foucs in the United States. Since 2010, they have held over 150 events, raised 8.5 Million for the Wounded Warrior Project, and have had over 2 million participants. That’s right 2 million! So how does 2 million people find out about Tough Mudder events.
Calf Raises: The athlete will stand on a surface that is slightly higher than the floor. They then will move their ankle into planter flexion and dorsiflexion. This exercise will not only aid to strengthen their calves, but it also will help recreate the toe off motion that the athlete will be expected to perform during gait. This exercise will be introduced toward the end of the four weeks as test to see if the athlete is ready to perform gait pain free. After performing the above exercises, the athlete will return to the bike to perform a cardiorespiratory fitness maintenance workout.
It has also taught me how to be apart of a team and what it means to be responsible for my own part in activities. In marching band if you don’t practice and know your drill and choreography, the whole band will suffer as a result. In concert band if you don’t learn the right rhythm in the music along with the notes the music won’t sound together. The process of chair placement auditions and honor bands has taught me to never give up and if you work hard enough you will
On the other hand, Figure skating takes up much more training time. The elite figure skater first warms up for thirty minutes, next he or she stretches for fifteen minutes, and then he or she warms up again and practices jumps off the ice for another fifteen minutes. Next the figure skater skates for about three hours, working on stroking, edges, spins, jumps, and competition programs. They often do these four minute long programs at least twice per hour. The figure skater then does an on-ice conditioning session for forty five minutes, and then gets off the ice.
Sports by nature are an environment that requires people to push their bodies to extreme limits in order for people to become the best at their individual sport or skill. Though out history athlete have pushed the limits of their bodies to accomplish these tasks, while going to these extremes many have suffered injuries, maiming and in some cases death. Athletes though out the centuries have accepted these risks and as a society we acknowledge risks by stating, “ injuries are part of the game”. My theory is finding different means of achieving athletic success is part of the game as well and if the athlete is staying within the spirit of sport i.e. competing to win against an opponent within the rules of the game, therefore the athlete is not deviant.
and and Colorguard have been practicing constantly, and achieved many awards during the last few parades. The members of Colorguard and Band have been working their tails off every day to ensure more achievements in the future. Band members have been practicing everyday to get everything right. They start practice at 7:40 a.m, and play through the first period of the day with another period for Concert Band and after-school practices until 9 p.m. To get prepared for competitions, they all must arrive on time and do the visual and music parts of their warm-ups. After all the warm-ups, the drum major dismisses each section to go onto the field to perform.
While on the track team it kept my physically fit, it gave me motivation to pass my classes and made me determined to beat my time over and over again. On the track team we share similar goals in the track and field community. There are a lot of goals too set when you’re on the track team. I and my team all have personal records that we set after a race and when it’s time for the next race we set a goal to beat the last record. We also have the same goal of reaching the state and city championships.

There are many different competitions each weekend and knowledgeable coaches can find out what teams are competing and choose if they want to compete against them or not. Unlike football where teams set a consistent schedule and play teams consistently from year to year cheerleading teams can attend any competition they desire. Additionally, if a competition is lacking teams they will
Although there was a court ruling years ago that declared it to not be a sport, there is no reason why cheer should not be considered a sport. It meets all of the requirements of being a sport and it involves a lot of hard work and dedication! First off, do you know the actual definition of a sport? If not, this is what it is, “an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or
