According to Madisen Martinez “Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) tournaments require an extended period in which the student-athletes must miss school.” They skip class for the game to win tournament that they work so hard to get to. College Students Athletes is a full time job, they go to weight training to classes and then to the film room to the practice and finally to the game. (Martinez) The whole time they are getting ready for basketball and not much of school work. Some of the basketball things they do is mandatory and they have to go to it. If they have mandatory stuff in basketball then why do put in the class times so they skip classes, shouldn't they make where they do not skip classes.The college athletes use most of their time at basketball
Do Kids Train to Hard in athletics at young ages? A lot of questions have come up with this sort of topic and that is do kids train to hard in sports. Because I am an athlete my opinion is that young athletes do not train to hard my reasoning for that is, an athlete can only go as hard as he/she wants you can’t make them do something they don't want. The solutions’ I came up with are; students should go to an athletic study hall for most of their practice or, just completely tone down their training to their age level. As stated above, my first solution to the problem is to have the young athlete’s (as myself ) go to an athletic study hall during most of the practice and that would reduce the amount time, they have to train therefore balancing
I tried to avoid looking at the other teams practicing as I walked to the arena, I needed to focus on my routine. When I entered the HP Field House filled with 11,000 cheerleaders and spectators, my stomach sank and nerves hit me instantly. I started running through our routine and warming up stunts and tumbling. Before we stepped on the mat, we huddled together and my coach said, “You’ve got two minutes and thirty seconds to leave your mark. That’s all you need.
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.

Martial arts disciplined me in a way I never thought possible. My instructor was always checking my grades, asking my parents if my room was clean, as well as asking how I treated them. If I ever had an unsatisfactory mark on my “parent report card,” I would be run into the ground by doing continuous exercises until I was afraid to talk back, throw my clothes on my bedroom floor, or have anything less than an
I had to miss some of my classes because I had to attend meetings at the Navy Recruit Office and also do Physical Training in preparation for the Navy Bootcamp. My class schedule conflicted with the time and date we had our Physical Training. Music, also being my passion and part-time job, also gets in the way of my schooling. Constant demands and requests for new music from my supporters
I have surpassed my personal records race after race and my walls are covered in race bibs and medals. I wonder how I will ever leave my team, who has become more like a family to me. I will never forget the team sleepovers where we talked for countless hours, or the excitement we felt when we actually found a movie that revolved around our sport. We have seen each other at our very worst and very best and still continue to be there, screaming our heads off at the finish line for each other. After all the long runs, intervals, sprints, injuries, exhaustion, and personal records, I’m finally starting to find the answer to why i joined cross country.

The experts (the same uncles and aunties again) are staunch believer of the below life cycle 1. Work hard and make sure you get a high score in class X.
