Which made me decide to play basketball. However, asthma was only one of the reasons why I started to play basketball. I wanted to prove other people and myself that I am able to be good in a sport despite my condition. I didn’t want to use my asthma as an excuse, so I pushed my body beyond its limits whenever I am playing basketball with my friends or at basketball practice. Later, I joined my middle school basketball team.
Basketball It was my senior year, and I was about to play my last game of high school basketball. My adrenaline was rising as I was listening to some rap songs. I was ready to play, but I was upset that this would be my last high school game. I was hyped up and ready for warm ups. We came out of the locker room, and I was the first in line for lay-ups.
I think I increased my academic skills by having not having much friends and them not being in my classes. So I didn’t have no distractions I just focused on school. I also played more sports such as basketball and football. I did well in school to make my mom proud, I got honor roll three times that year then after sixth grade ended I realized my academics were not to make my mom proud it was to make me feel proud of myself. I also didn’t know eighth graders would be mean and bully the sixth graders.
Swish Basketball is a very high paced, intense sport as the most exciting moment of the game is the fast breaks that result in a lay-up or dunk. A fast break needs everyone on the team to work together to flash past the defense and gain an advantage. Fast breaks are almost always the highlights of the game that you see on TV over and over again on Sportscenter. Outside of sports, the fast break is like completing a test in school and knowing you did well on it, after studying and learning the material for countless Hours In “Fast Break” by Edward Hirsch, he uses an immense amount of imagery to capture this perfect moment coming all together through teamwork, appearance and struggle. For a Fast Break to happen some things need to go wrong for the defense along with perfect execution from the offense.
Since, I have an unconditional love for volleyball I took it upon myself to gather all the teams and have them warm up as a team. By the time they began drills, the varsity coach was rolling in to practice. A few minutes later the junior varsity coach would join us. We greeted each other, socialized a little about the girls, then she gave me “the okay” to coach the junior varsity team. The junior varsity girls insisted that I help them in practice, so I began with a pep talk to motivate and prepare them for
It was fall of my eighth-grade year, and I couldn't wait for basketball tryouts. I had been practicing all summer trying to prepare for my first basketball tryout. Then I heard the school bell ring meaning tryouts was in ten minutes. Nervously, I walked into the gym and saw a lot of kids trying out who have played their whole lives; then the coach blew the whistle and we all started warming up. At the end of tryouts, I thought I played great and I was excited to come back for the second day of tryouts the next day.
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.
It was pretty intimidating to try out for volleyball freshman year. There were coaches left and right watching us. There had to be at least 100 girls just waiting to see if we would make varsity, jv, or freshman team, or even a team at all. Mile times, verticals, amount of pushups we could do, were all recorded. Keep in mind that I had never played on an organized sports team in my life.
Because I was late to the game, I missed the warm ups. My coach did not start me because I had just played in a game at 9:00 am. I sat on the bench watching our team lose so finally my coach put me back in. We started to come back and then we got a big lead. Then my coach sat me back down.
Piece of writing, a person’s thoughts, and a subject of a talk defiens theme. His parents said that he had to eat them before he could get up and go outside to play with Norrman. He sat at the kitchen table all day refusing to eat the oats. So just as a kid he began to rebel against his parents. So in many cases it is bad to rebel from what people tell you to but sometimes you know what the right thing is to do.
