Recess that day was just like the others. I went to the basketball court and started shooting basketballs into the hoops. I felt a bit gloomy, like the weather. But little did I know how much worse I would feel at the end...................... Recess had just started, and I was already at the basketball court.
Make them think, hey, with just a little coaching from me; this kid could be a raving sensation when he gets to college. They will be drooling over you. Believe me, if you do Kick Butt At Basketball Camp, the coaches will keep you in mind for their teams. So, it is very important for anyone who wants a college basketball scholarship to attend as many of the camps as possible. Just one super day or hour or even just one great play that is seen by just one coach or even a friend of a coach could lead to a full-ride college scholarship.
I remember it like it was yesterday freshman year basketball tryouts I was really excited as soon as that final bell rang I ran straight to the gym to get ready tryouts were the whole week but I felt like I needed to get off to a good start. I got in the gym put my shoes on stretched and started to get warmed up. The coach walked in the gym I got really nervous he didn 't know me I didn 't know him so I went up shook his hand and told him my name and the grade I was in. Tryouts finally started we started doing drills I was trying so hard not to mess up but I ended up messing up a couple times but I said hey no one 's perfect. The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams.
Basketball is a game of chess. It is non stop running shouting and yelling, just like my championship tournament for my Hoover basketball team. I was tired before the tournament even started because I had already played a game earlier in the morning at 9:00 am at Chelsea Elementary School with my Berry team. After that game I went to play in a tournament for my Hoover team at 11:00am. Because I was late to the game, I missed the warm ups.
The sport, basketball, was invented in December, 1891 by Dr. James Naismith. Basketball originated when Dr. Naismith was assigned to teach a physical education class at a Young Men 's Christian Association training school in Springfield, Massachusetts. When basketball was first invented, how people played the game were just throwing soccer balls into an empty basket that was elevated in the air a bit. Later on, Naismith expanded the basket, also known as the hoop, 10 feet in the air. Around 1906, Dr. Naismith replaced the peach basket, they used to make the hoops, to metals hoops with backboards.
In 1891, the amazing invention of basketball was invented by a physical education instructor at a YMCA rec center named Doctor James Naismith. Naismith was asked by the director of physical education, Dr. Luther Gulick to invent a new game that athletes could play during the winter to keep the track and field athletes in shape during the winter (Hiskey). Naismith was given two weeks to come up with such a game that revolutionized the whole sports world. Basketball was inspired by a game he played as a child called “Duck on a Rock” (Hiskey). When the first game of basketball was played, Naismith was able to use a soccer ball and a basket for the game.
Basketball 4th period 3 seconds on the clock, the games tied 24:24. I come dribbling down halfcourt trying to shoot and I get fouled by the other oponent. The buzzer is on and l only have two shots for the foul. I struggle as I try to shoot missing the first shot, the second shot comes as I breathe heavily and I release the ball and hits the backboard. The crowd gets quiet as I shot.
Four years ago I never thought that basketball would come to an end. During my freshman year I thought that high school was endless, and senior year seemed like a distant future. Last Wednesday brought me back into reality, and showed me that the end is near. It was the District Semi-Final game, and of course we had to play McBain for the third time this season. That day we had an overall good feeling about the game, but there was also this nagging sensation that volleyball may repeat itself.
