Degler loves coaching girls basketball, and has had a great experience back here at Chaska.
Basketball has been in my blood since the third grade. I look up to the female high school and WNBA players. No matter the level of girls’ basketball, I was into it. As I grew up, I continued to play the game that I loved. But as the years passed by I noticed something: nobody was really ever at our games. Our parents were obviously there to support us, but other than that, no one else showed up. However, when I started to attend the boys’ games in high school, I took note of the fact that every seat was full. I was genuinely confused by this. They had an overall record of 1-19 by the end of the season while the girls’ team had a record of 18-4. Why were they getting all of the fame when we were having all of the success?
Also, in the WNBA the ball is 28 inches round compared to the NBA ball which is 29 inches round. Both of these show examples of the differences between the women 's league and the men 's league. If a woman was to join the NBA they could struggle due to the differences.
Diana Taurasi is the all time best female basketball player. She trains and plays as hard as the NBA players do. So why does she not get paid as much as they do? Here are some reasons why the (WNBA) Women’s National Basketball Association should get paid more.

In today’s day and age, many, if not most, people enjoy sports either by playing, coaching or spectating. At a certain point in time, not everyone was able to do these things. During the Civil Rights Movement, sports were turned upside down and sports became accessible to a wider range of people. Many important athletes such as Jackie Robinson came out of the era and opened the public’s eye. Several became activists or coaches and changed sports in a way that hadn’t been done before. Outside of their sports they became public role models and were looked up to. They overcame obstacles and fought through a lot of adversity not only from opponents and spectators but teammates as well. Had the advancement of sports during the Civil RIghts Movement
The crowd is screaming, sweat is dripping, and the cheerleaders are cheering. All of which happen at both football and basketball games. The past four years I have been a cheerleader for both sports. There are many differences between football and basketball cheer.
Middle school students are competing in competitive sports which both have a positive and negative side. Some players say that sports can help people lose weight and keep active. But on the other half states that it can be dangerous and can cause future physical damage. Generally competitive sports can be fun but it can come with consequences of regret of young children 's lives. My reasons of competitive sports being bad are that it can take up the participants time and it can pressure or overwhelm them in a sense of them being stressed. Second reason is that the injuries can be vital and can cause future damages to your physical state and maybe mental state if overwhelmed too much for working on the sport. My third and final reason of competitive
Ever since its debut by gym teacher Dr. James Naismith in 1891 basketball has become a widely popularized team sport for both men and women across the nation. Though enjoyed by both men and women, women have struggled to attain the same respect in the sport as men, even though the women at the University of California had their first extramural game in 1892. The same trend continues in the NBA, National Basketball Association, and WNBA, Women’s National Basketball. The NBA started 70 years ago in 1946 while the WNBA began 20 years ago in 1996. The NBA continues to gain popularity, while the WNBA struggles to still be known. The WNBA’s ticket prices are a lot less expensive than NBA tickets. The WNBA is still less successful than the NBA because
Basketball! Basketball! Basketball! Basketball has come a long way from its beginning; an actual basket and a regular old ball there were people that played outside. Basketball has three different levels of competition high school, College, and NBA but all three vary from each other and they have some of the rules and characteristics.
After the Milan High School victory, eight teams have made it to the Final Four. These teams are Springs Valley High School in 1958, Tell City High School in 1961, Cloverdale High School in 1966, Loogootee High School in 1970 and 1975, Argos High School in 1979, Shenandoah High School in 1981, Southridge High School in 1985, and Whitko High School in 1991 (“One-Class…”). Loogootee’s 1975 team made it to championship game; but, no small, current A or 2A, school won the championship after Milan High School (Johnson). Just as state champions change each year, so does tournament attendance. In 1960, the total series attendance was 1,497,674. By 1997, the tournament attendance dropped to 786,024 (Whitko).
As we all know soccer and tennis are the sports that are widely known throughout the entire world, but baseball and basketball our the major sports of our country and are widely recognized throughout the U.S. These two sports are a symbol to our country. Due to their high popularity, they have spread around the world and now are known as two of the most well known sports.

The economic factors influencing participation are as follows: 5(10%) of R and 20(100%) of E participated for financial benefits (job, cash, and scholarship etcetera). 39(78%) of R and 19(95%) of E played for opportunities/privileges (fame/connections/influence) 37(74) of R and 17(85%) of E participated because they had support (from coaches, family, peers, community, school).
