Competitive sports provide a community which kids can work with and beat other teams with. “Playing a sport helps children develop social skills which would benefit them even when they grow older. Playing sports teaches them about teamwork and cooperating with others. They learn to interact with people from different ages” (Mahaseth). When these kids grow up, they can use these skills to be able to cooperate and talk with their colleagues.
“The continued academic successes speak to the type of student-athletes our coaches recruit and the expectations they create for them in and out of their competitions,” said Brock. “With support from Undergraduate Studies and the Athletics Department, our student-athletes continue to excel in the classroom and set the bar high for future Eagles.” Beth this one is related to the honors programs: http://www.fgcu.edu/honors/ Another example of how the curriculum is arrange to meet the needs of the students is the Honors Program In reading about the program I was drawn to the Pillars of Honors page http://www.fgcu.edu/Honors/pillars-honors.html. At the bottom of their webpage under “personal Transformation it is clearly stated that “The Honors Program’s curriculum and related activities are designed to offer students increased success, opportunities, and resources, so that they grow and develop throughout their entire university
One positive effect of youth sports is that they help teach athletes important and long lasting lessons to have during their life. For example, a competitive environment teaches kids how to handle pressure and criticism (Mango 3). Most sports have situations that put athletes in tight spots. Even though they push them out of their comfort zone, it teaches them how to keep cool and figure it out. Some may say that too much pressure for youths can leave a negative impact on them.
At the beginning of my 6th grade year, most of my friends were going out for wrestling. I was debating whether to join or not, and they convinced me to do it. It was one of the best decisions I ever made because this is where I first got to know Mr. Schaidle. Throughout the season, he taught me how to wrestle and how to be a leader. He was not only concerned about winning at wrestling, but also teaching us to be responsible, to show respect, and how to be a man.
When I first stumbled upon this scholarship from the American Legion, I knew right away that I wanted to apply for it because of the similarities between what the American Legion and what I both stand for. I few words that I would use to describe the American Legion and myself would be, service, integrity, and hard work. These are a few things that I take very seriously and attempt to involve in my life everyday. I pride myself on these high character traits and try to use them in my community, during sporting events, at home, and at my school. I also implement these traits while fulfilling my civic duties by doing service around my community.
It is valuable because it keeps kids healthy and fit. My next reason is that it allows kids to learn to face competition, and teaches them to work as a team. The last reason is that it raises self-esteem level, improves self-confidence, and helps kids deal with pressure. If kids join competitive sports it would create a much more developed society. It will lead to more developed, hardworking individuals.
Joining NHS would allow me to grow as a person and do as much as I can for others. In my years as a student at Mahwah High School, I believe that I have displayed various examples of scholarship, leadership, service, and character that I deem would qualify me to join this prominent society. Being a high school student who balances the rigorous work of AP and Honors courses, tough sports, clubs, and volunteering just shows my ability to bend to anything that comes my way. In the beginning of this year, my character abilities
I believe leadership can be represented by both an individual or a group. This year I was chosen to be captain for both basketball and football cheerleading. Because I was captain, I had to lead the other cheerleaders by teaching underclassmen the cheers, choosing which cheers we did, and arranging practices for the team. I not only find myself as a great leader in cheerleading, I also find myself to be a great leader in track. Because I start so many events, I am always staying after practice to practice starting blocks.
With so many kids participating it was bound to become something of discussing. Should kids play competitive sports? While some parents believe that the competition can harm kids, I believe that sports can greatly help kids. Making them experience healthy competition and become more well rounded contributing members of society. The first reason that I believe supports my claim is that kids gain a sense of healthy competition that can prepare them for life.
