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. This building process taught me that if you’re willing to work hard for something then you can succeed. The summer after my sophomore year I attended the Drum Major Academy. Looking back I can't believe how many lessons I learned. My first day of

Misty had received many recruiting letters about three hundred colleges including Stanford, Hawaii, Arizona, University of the Pacific and California State University - Long Beach (Misty 92). She chose to go to California State University. Misty learned that working hard in volleyball lead to many wonderful opportunities. If Misty May-Treanor had not tried, she would not have had the college opportunities that she had and would not be where she is today. In addition, after Misty won the NCAA championship, Misty’s physical therapist Valinda Hilleary Roche asked Misty “to play with her in a pro beach volleyball tournament” (Misty 113).
Players can play for their high school when they are of age. Whether it is a private school or a public school, most schools have a basketball team. But, most schools have tryouts, and if a player isn 't good enough for the team, they are cut from the team. The next level of play is college basketball. This level of play is almost exactly the same as high school but the competition is better.
I had played in many tournaments that summer and the summer prior, but this tourney was different. It was the first time that I was playing in a higher age division. I was also entering my Freshman year of highschool, and knew that I would play a handful of these guys again during the season. I was determined to play well to earn their respect. Over the next couple of days, I spent hours getting ready.
I began playing water polo my freshman year at Archbishop Mitty, and I never thought it would make such a remarkable impact on my life. I was thinking in the beginning, maybe I’ll just do one year, or most two, but that has dramatically changed over the past three years. I can genuinely say that I have fallen in love with the sport. I don’t want to play just throughout my high school years, I want more, I want to play in college, I want to try out for the Olympic team, and after that I want to coach others and see their passion for the sport as well. Water Polo has done a lot for me in my life, it has introduced me to my two best friends, given me an outlet, and most importantly taught me how to be a leader, My best friends play important
Entering my first high school track and field season was so exciting--it was the start of my discus career where I could actually compete amongst other talented throwers in a span of many more meets. I felt confident since I had always been advanced in my years of throwing since I started at around the age of 9. Learning from an experienced and intelligent coach, I felt there was no way I could not succeed, but then a problem arose. The man who had been coaching me for almost five years could no longer work for the track and field team. I continued to work with him on my own when he was available, however, it appeared that other teammates were suffering due to the lack of guidance and critique.
One of the biggest parts of my life has to be the sport of basketball. I played every year I could since I can remember. I participated in youth commission, then modified, Jv, and all the way to my senior year. With this being my last year all I care about is the team 's success and making a push into sectionals. 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.
It was the end of my eighth grade year and I was playing junior high volleyball. In the past I always considered myself as an athlete either trying or playing every sport in the book. Did I enjoy playing sports? Sure it had it’s perks, but did I love it as much as making music? Not even close.
Ever since middle school sports have always been an interest of mine. When choosing my high school the sports that were offered was one of the many things that I took into consideration. I signed up for cheer during high school orientation. At the first practice, It was a new experience for majority of the girls; we had no prior experience. As time went on, our skills increased.
