While it is true that becoming a champion could be pressurizing to a younger child, wanting to be the best around at something is something that carries on even outside of sports, into life. We should be expecting kids to want to compete to win, not just to be participating. To be the winner of a sport will give you the mental mindset to be the best at other things later in life, such as being the best at their job, or being the best in school. One way that participation trophies could actually work is if each award was given to the child player with a purpose. The coach stating each players strength on the team as they hand them the award could give a powerful message to the children, showing them that they have control over their success.
Typically, we consider the problem to be with illicit drugs but not for drugs that are over the counter or even prescribed by doctors. Created with good intentions, the zero-tolerance policy law, was, in fact, was not entirely thought out which ultimately lead to it having adverse outcomes within our school systems. When we send our children to school, we want to make sure it is the safest environment for them to brighten their futures and expand their horizons. We do not want to send our children to a situation where they can face potential exposure to illegal substances or potential weapons, which is why the zero-tolerance policy was developed. It was primarily designed to make schools a drug free environment.
Random drug testing will also make student athletes stop using drugs “if they’re really serious about playing” (Marciana np). Coaches and faculty members of schools also agree with random drug testing and care about the health and safety of students. “We are trying to look out for the health and safety of our student-athletes. I think we’re trying to send the right message” (Pilon np). Students who wish to participate in extracurricular activities will stop using drugs if they were to be randomly tested because “participating in extracurriculars, in public high schools is a privilege and it’s not a right, as well as parking on our school parking lot” (Marciana
No, but it cannot be argued that it is the most watched sport worldwide. Associated football gives every nation the opportunity to bring the entire planet together to get crazy and cheer on their country’s team (Kruschewsky). In the end, a soccer team does not receive 15-yard penalties for “excessive
Dr. LIncoln Allison argues that in truth, steroids are not really “cheating”, they are just a way to bring out the full ability from a player. “A sportsman or woman who seeks an advantage from drugs just moves up to the level appropriate to his or her underlying ability”(107). She suggests that we deal with other, much greater problems, before worrying about teroid issue, ”In general, the risk to health from performance-enhancing drugs is considerably less than that from tobacco or alcohol, and we ought not to apply paternalistic moral assumptions to sport that we are not prepared to apply to the rest of

This is what makes United States Of America so beautiful to so many others not just to those who were lucky enough to be born here.

Americans are a united community who stands tall and proud and works coherently in order to accomplish
Which makes me all the more determined to make sure that I keep that kind of love and support around myself at all times. What those athletes demonstrated to me is the kind of power there is in surrounding yourself in an atmosphere where love thrives above all else. Hence, I am grateful for my gift of discernment, which has helped me weed out some of the toxic people in my life. Maintaining healthy boundaries is an ongoing process for me, but there is no love or nobility in allowing others to mistreat me, no matter how "good" their intentions or the explanations they provide me. When what a person says does not match what they do, it is always the action that leaves the deepest impression because actions always speak louder than
Many don’t see the wonders sports can do to a nation, but I do. My country is a perfect example of how soccer united all tribes and religions, rich and poor to become one and coexist without borders, it gave me hope and the strength to forgive and forget the tragedies that took place in the past. The Elephants are a flawless illustration of a diverse group of civilians that come from various ethnic backgrounds and religions, an embodiment of what the country needed to aspire to be,
Youths should not be banned from participating in sports such as dodgeball, cheerleading, and football. To begin with, dodgeball teaches physical and mental education. According to the text, ”Rick Hanetho, founder of National Amatuer Dodgeball Association said,” It teaches hand-eye coordination, concentration, and to draw quick conclusions” (171). This proves that youths shouldn’t be banned from dodgeball since it teaches them at a young age and it teaches mental and physical lessons. As for cheerleading, youths shouldn’t be banned because the coaches are trained and certified.
