My brother got so much under pressure that he fainted before the game even started. As a result, the coach had to withdraw him from the game. I agree with the author that such pressures can affect the health of a child. Therefore, the sports should not be about exerting such pressures rather they should be about improving a child’s health. The author puts forth the idea that the through drills and the training schedules make sports a ‘job-like’ activity for the children.
Various groups of young children all around the world are wasting their time and even money on certain, nonessential games that aren’t worth it. Not all games are worth playing because, they lower some of the students’ confidence levels, encourage the stronger players to pick on the weak, leaving them without any chance to play, and the weak can’t defend themselves through all of it. Article, Position on Dodgeball in Physical Education by NASP and television clip from Freaks and Geeks both address/display the unimportance of one of these games, dodgeball. These reasons provide more than enough proof to eliminate these useless games for good. Most of these unnecessary games lower other's’ confidence in themselves.
I have been playing soccer since before I could even walk. In fact, I joined my first soccer team at the age of five. Soccer is something I have always loved and been passionate about. When I was on the co-ed recreation league teams I was one of the only girls on my team, so I had to compete with boys who doubted me and thought I was weak. I worked hard during practice and out of practice to become better and, eventually, I became more aggressive than them.
The blue eyed – brown eyed experiment in my opinion is indeed ethical. The issue at hand with this experiment is will it cause permeant future psychological damage. Jane Elliott conducted this experiment with her third-grade students which some would say it is too harsh of an exercise for a group that young; She wanted to teach her student that discrimination is wrong which have been a topic they discussed from the first day of school but felt the student would become confused with the fact she just honored Dr. king in the month of February and now she had to explain to them that he was assassinated because of discrimination. Jane Elliott agreed that this exercise can do Psychological damage if not conducted correctly but the benefits are remarkable.
Towards the middle of the story, Quarta saved a mischievous boy named, Kako from a tidepool. Quarta could’ve just done this because it was the right thing to do. But on the other hand, I believe she rescued him because she was trying to prove to everyone that she was worth something, that she could do things. At the end of the text, Quarta created a game called, one-ball. Most of the kids that weren’t athletic, joined the league.
With my teammates making racial comments of me and not being good enough in Water Polo. I faced two choices: to either give up or work hard and prove them wrong. Coming out of the classroom tired, I had a reason to show everyone of my teammates that we’re a team, we need to work as a team, and race shouldn’t divide us. Swimming breathless, and sometimes being blacked out, I pushed myself to the limit; worked on my technique and I was being able to improve myself, and although words of others tried to attack and slow me down, I let distraction to not distract me and work harder than ever in every morning, after school and Saturday practices.
Finally, these are my main reasons for how the games are filled with suspense. Furthermore, the Miami Heat is my choice for sports team is because this team never backs down from a fight. For example, there was this one game where they went against the Houston Rockets and, by halftime, the Heat were down by 25 points. That was until the Co-Captain made an intense speech in the locker room and turned that 25-point deficit into a 15-point lead by the 4th quarter. My point is is that this team has the attitude to win.
Reading Presence by Amy Cuddy makes to believe there are much more dealing with same challenges. The more I read, the more I learn about our mindset, listening, failure, feeling as we don’t deserve to be here, feeling powerful and powerless. There’s are a quote in a book which states “ Power makes us approach, powerless makes us avoid.” When we think about positive things and having a positive outcome than we are more chance of approaching. While I was reading a passage on power and powerless, It made me think of time during my high school soccer tryout for varsity. Apart from your soccer ability, coaches also look for confidence and your willingness to take a chance even if it makes you look like a fool.
I added small improvements to my game like three point shooting, and additional conditioning so I would not get tired late in games. By the time basketball season rolled around, I was ready for tryouts. The coach had me tryout with both the freshman and the varsity team on the first day. This made the first day the hardest day since, for the most part, all we did was run sprints. Once I got past the first day, however, the next two days were fairly easy, I was able to run sprints without losing all my energy before getting to the scrimmages.
This allegory could be relatable to anyone seeing that highschool is one of the most stress and difficult times in a person’s life. Lastly, Odysseus’ goal is to reunite with his wife, but does not immediately show himself to the suitors and his wife. In order to reach his goal he must outperform those who share the same goal. I can relate to this, because I tried out for the eighth grade basketball team. I faced people, much like Odysseus’s suitors, who want the same position as I did.
To improve heading, practice heading progression, chip and head to score or clear drill and two versus two heading drill. Goalkeeping is the most difficult and important position played on the field. Mia Hamm has played goalkeeper in one of her games because the U.S. team used all their substitutes, so Hamm knows how pressured goalies feel during games. The goalkeeper’s reaction to a flying ball can determine the outcome of the game. Goalkeepers must always have concentration and be good with their eyes and mouth.
They had a very selfish player that had almost half of their points. So we figured if we just lock him up when knew we were gonna win. He scored about 5 more points to start the 3nd half so by that time i just started guarding him. I knew he was weak minded and just wanted to shoot over me so i was just gonna be aggressive with him the whole time. He finally got me in the open court and everyone cleared out it was just me and him in the backcourt.
His wife Jackie, which is my grandma. They had three kids. Scott, Kim, and Angie, she is my mother. In every single game that he played, he scored double digits. Bob said during the interview “if there was three pointers back then I would of scored 20 points a quarter.” “I was the go to guy and the coach wanted the ball in my hands cause he knew that I could score the ball.” Bob 's childhood days were much different than it is for kids now.
