I was exceedingly diffident and taciturn before I began playing basketball. No matter what kind of questions people asked me back then, I would always respond with, “I don’t know,” because I was too timid to speak up. Moreover, basketball taught me that if I try my best, my efforts will pay off. I learned that this lesson does not only apply to basketball, but also to all areas of my life. If I could go back to the past, I would definitely make the same commitments to
I remember it like it was yesterday freshman year basketball tryouts I was really excited as soon as that final bell rang I ran straight to the gym to get ready tryouts were the whole week but I felt like I needed to get off to a good start. I got in the gym put my shoes on stretched and started to get warmed up. The coach walked in the gym I got really nervous he didn 't know me I didn 't know him so I went up shook his hand and told him my name and the grade I was in. Tryouts finally started we started doing drills I was trying so hard not to mess up but I ended up messing up a couple times but I said hey no one 's perfect. The first day of tryouts was almost over the coaches got all of us together and put us in to scrimmage teams.
But at the time I did would not see any need for it. Growing up I used to dread going to work out with my dad it was one of the worst things ever. He used to have me doing different drills. Running countless laps over and today. Basketball Time we used to go I would end up crying sooner or later it was never a time we did not go where I didn 't.
Michael Jordan 's highschools basketball career was truly , horrible, “Michael Jordan 's high school basketball career is best known for what didn 't happen. In the fall of 1978, Jordan didn 't make the varsity team as a sophomore at Laney High School in Wilmington, N.C. He played for the junior varsity instead. After growing six inches, he made the varsity team and starred for two seasons before signing with the University of North Carolina and becoming the dominant NBA player of his generation.” Michael Jordan was not that good at basketball in high school, but once he grew, his basketball career took off. He couldn 't even make the varsity team when he was a sophomore.
Recess had just started, and I was already at the basketball court. I grabbed a basketball that bounced higher than me, and started shooting hoops. Slowly, everybody came to the court, and it went from me peacefully playing basketball to balls flying EVERYWHERE! The whole time, I had to duck down to avoid getting hit. But then my teachers called us in, and boy, did that change things for the worse........
All I can remember was that there was this one girl on my team who always hogged the ball, so that did not really help the cause. My dad was also one of those parents who screamed at their child while they were on the court. As I played more often, I became to be a pretty decent player. Meanwhile my family moved to North Liberty, and I got very nervous about starting basketball. As I got back into playing again, I started at the North Liberty rec league.
I always been into sport since I was a little kid. Sport motivate me to stay out of trouble and getting back lock up. Sports have had a huge impact on my life. One time I didn’t play any sports for three months because my legs was broke. I went to school to play basketball with my friends and I couldn’t make a shot.
March third, 2002, I was born. A low life, little did I know I would be good at fixing things. I would change my own life. I don’t remember much of my younger years, but I do know that I was a rascal and hard to keep up with. Sports have been a huge part of my life as I play basketball and will play football this coming summer.
Do you know Why It so Important To Kick Butt at Basketball Camp? Yes, it is FUN. That is one reason. But a more important reason is it gives you a GREAT chance to get your foot in the door of a college basketball scholarship. So, you may be asking, Why would doing well at basketball camp make that much of a difference?
Julia Young English 1010 Larson, P.3 Personal Narrative The professional boxer Muhammad Ali once said, “I hated every minute of training, but i said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.’ ” This quote became relatable the moment I looked back on the start of my cheerleading “career”. My older sister Aarika cheered for Brighton while I was in 7th grade, she tried convincing me for months to join a team and finally I agreed. I wasn’t very excited, I wasn’t thrilled having to be thrown into something I didn’t know anything about, and I was absolutely terrified about being the “new girl” on the team. I remember that first practice, walking into the gym and being shaken by the loud blaring music and girls running around
