As you run down the field cradling the lacrosse ball in your stick, it feels like every other girl is barreling toward you at full speed. There is no better feeling, though, than to shoot the ball and watch it sail past the goalie into the net. Growing up in Baltimore, lacrosse is practically a religion. However, I never really felt any interest in lacrosse. In the Spring of my junior year, one of my friends begged me to try out for my high school’s lacrosse team. I had no experience at all with playing so I was apprehensive about trying out. The first couple of practices, we worked on ball skills: throw, catch, repeat. I dropped virtually all of them and was ready to give up. As the season went on, I spent hours at home bouncing the lacrosse
We love hockey. Look, it's our sport. we're really good at it. We don’t apologize for this. And maybe we don't all play it but we will wake up at 6 a.m. for any Olympic playoff to support our team.
Failure is not easy to cope with. Failure gives people a sense of apprehension, a lack of confidence that they are not capable of achieving their goals. Although it does not feel the best at the time, this is where success is made. Starting off my ice hockey career at the age of 5 I met many new faces and did not realize at the time that one sport would have such an impact on my life. Through the ups, and the downs, ice hockey has taught me how to be a hard worker, contribute to society, and most of all, how to handle situations when the tide is against you. Here is where my journey, and also the most dreaded part of the year comes, tryout season.
Every year, we seem to hear more and more about softball players getting hit in the face or head with a ball. “Of all softball injuries last school year, 17.2% were head and face injuries.” ("Concussions, Broken Noses – In Softball? Here Comes The Face Mask.") Two years ago, ¼ of the injuries in softball had occurred with a player getting hit in the face. By wearing a face mask, players can easily prevent the numerous injuries that can happen, which will assure players that they will not have any severe injuries to the facial area, even if some don’t like how the face mask looks or feels, name brand companies can make a face mask that can suit any type of players needs.
Through hard work and dedication, I quickly began to excel in hockey, but to me, hockey wasn't about winning, in my mind it about making it to the NHL and coming together as a team. Yet one of those things was worse than I thought. I joined a league where I could play and make friends, while we all worked towards the same goal. From that point on I moved higher in the divisions, trying to create what I thought was a capable future of sports. I was constantly on the ice, my nose was always runny, my toes were frozen and my face was always cold. It was at that time in my life where I realized I was improving, and my dream of becoming a pro hockey player could really become a
The little details are what make you stand out from the other players. While my teammates are out focusing on how many points they can put up, I would incorporate as many of the “little details” to get looked at. In hockey, I have to be first one on the puck at all times. I have to want it more than anyone else and win ever battle. I have to be intense and ready to do whatever it takes to get to loose pucks, before my opponents. Scouts love players who can recover the puck; they can see that I can take charge. The more my team has the puck, the better our chance is of winning. They also look for the players who aren’t afraid to move their feet and take the puck to the net. Moving my feet and using my body to protect the puck while getting closer to the net. Screening the goalie when my teammates have the puck so they have a better chance of scoring. If we lost the puck, I would back check as hard as I can. Playing offense, my job isn’t only about scoring goals. I need to put in a team effort in order to be
This is my most favorite part of being a lacrosse player, being part of a team. Being part of a lacrosse team feels amazing! It’s almost as if they are just another family. Another great thing about being part of a team is that you pick each other up. For example if somebody is feeling down it is your team 's responsibility to lift you up. There is no greater feeling than being a lacrosse
I like to spend my time outdoors, playing softball; it’s very important to be outside because you can enjoy the nature’s God has given us. Being outside is very soothing; it helps to focus on the important things in life. Nature is like a second home to humans. We can survive on our own in nature because we can live on the resources that are provided by nature.
Hearing your name being called and lining up alongside the first base line with your teammates before the game makes you feel worthy and excited to play such an amazing sport. As we gather in a tight circle just before we rush to our positions,
Baseball is considered by many to be America’s favorite pastime. Softball in many aspects is similar to baseball but in reality it is harder to play. This can be shown in all aspects of the game from hitting to pitching to fielding to catching.
Did you know that Lacrosse is one of the fastest known games to be played on your feet? Lacrosse is a fun game to play whether you're on the school's team or if you just want to play a game with your friends.
Track and Field looks like a very simple, easy, boring sport to most people but it’s really not. Some people
You never really know the true value of something, until you almost loose it. Growing up I was always involved with competitive sports. I would always make the highest-level hockey team that I could for my age group. Hockey has always been something that I was naturally talented at. When I was fourteen I moved one 1,932 Km away from my family, friends, and home to play for a prestigious hockey academy. With being at that academy and around that competitive nature I learnt perseverance, sportsmanship, as well as how to stay humble.
Growing up, I spent most of my time playing sports and trying to stay active as much as possible. As I got older, I became more serious with field hockey, and I was determined to make the varsity team my junior year of high school. All summer I spent working on my stick skills on the field, and my endurance in the gym in order to do everything I could to make the varsity squad. When tryouts started in the end of August, I hadn’t performed the way I wanted to, and girls I thought had no chance of making the team, played so well over the three days. However, I was hopeful I still had a shot on the varsity roster. On the last day of tryouts, all fifty of us were to find out what team we had made, or for the few girls, that they were getting cut
