The few minutes before jumping into the pool was rough, having to convince myself to get in, but the second I reached the bottom of the pool I felt an instant relief. I knew that for the next two hours I didn’t have to worry about my essay that I haven’t started or the drama my friends made that day. I knew the only thing I had to focus on was playing, and I knew I was able to do that. I recall even on the worst of days I would get into the water, swimming aggressively, and shooting the ball like I was trying to take off the goalies head, but not even thirty minutes into a practice you would see a giant smile on my face. Playing made me so happy, and I knew that no matter what challenge I was facing I could go to water polo to clear my head, and give me a place to just let it all
She gladly replied with yes. At first, I was really slow, but under Christina’s help, I became faster in swimming. She stayed after practice with me and taught me how to improve in my freestyle, my diving, and my flip-turns. It was hard work, and we were both exhausted after practice, but she told me if I kept this up, I could go to meets. After all of the training sessions, I felt ready to go to a meet.
Summer is the time students wait for all year. Summer is the time where students sit around and do whatever they want whenever they want because they don’t have to worry about getting up or doing work for school. For me I can’t remember the last summer I had where I just sat around. High school students dread getting a job in the summer because it takes away from their social life, but getting a job is the best decision. During that summer I worked as a lifeguard and office person at the Pascack Valley Swim Club.
The match against Ocean View ended up in Honolulu 's loss, but since everyone had done their best, and it wasn 't a real match, nobody was truly upset. The past week had helped everyone, especially Henry, fine tune their abilities, learn new skills they were able to use on court, and stay motivated. Yuki, however, felt like he could have performed better. Several times throughout the game, an opponent 's spike had slipped past his fingers, endangering his team. Having learned his lesson, Yuki promised to practice hard for the next match and help his
As the music crescendos around me and I toss my saber, everything else fades away until it's just me, the music and my saber. Months of hard work, dedication, and lessons I have learned come flashing back. I can't believe that there was a time before I knew how to spin anything, even a flag. Color Guard has helped me grow as a person over the last few years. In the beginning of my freshman year of school, the Guard program was not strong but because I wanted to join, I started to build the program.
But the one thing I have not payed attention to is how much the sport has pushed to be a better leader and how to take criticism from coaches and teammates. I have never realized this until I had the opportunity to look back. I have never been the one to take time and worry about self reflection but looking at the younger players during practice really had me thinking. It was the first open gym of my senior year and we were all excited
He states that children tableau day in a longer time than adult who years are like days gone by. He enjoys swimming in the pool but when summer break is over he does not feel like it was enough yet. He forces himself out off the pool knowing after Labor Day Holiday, he has to go back to work. No more relaxing and no more swimming because the doors of swimming pool will be closed. Reaction I agree for the fact that summer days are my family favorite day.
In past years, my high school swim team has never designated two individuals to be team captains. However, this year my coach decided that our team needed a girl and boy who could step up and lead the team when necessary. As team captain, I believe that it is important that we give back to our community as a team. Not only are we taking time to volunteer, but we also grow closer to the people on our team. So far this school year we all woke up as early as five o’clock in the morning to set up for and volunteer at the Plano Balloon Festival 5K/1K.
The training a lifeguard undergoes can accumulate mounds of stress, but in the long run, the training can save a life of a victim. Being a lifeguard comes with frequent pros and cons but all in all, lifeguarding is a great summer job for high school students. The schedule is also very flexible for guards with busy summer’s. Although pay in the beginning isn 't the best, as the summers continue the pay will increase. The skills one learns as a lifeguard are some that will stick with a guard forever and can apply to their everyday
Our whole track team always did a free ten minute run around the school first at the beginning of practice, and then did some stretches and exercises together, and went off into “splits” if we had a field event to practice in. During some track meets I would always worry that in the events I would compete in, I would be dead last. I always feared the everyone- is- looking-at-me-because-I’m-dead-last experience during a race. But, in almost all my events, I always finished mostly first and sometimes second. Even though I was quite short and still am now, I was still always faster than some other competitors that I ran against all my events.
