I truly believed that I already lost. Regardless, I went into the audition room, did my absolute best, and came out searching for a way to console myself. My mom took me out to eat afterwards, but instead of conversing I incessantly checked my phone every other minute for the results. Nearly an hour later, just after I arrived home, I checked the results and the trombones who made it were posted; there my name stood listed as the third best trombone. Personally, I am not the type to get excited over positive results, but this occasion was remarkably unique.
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.
Curry went to a montessori school opened by Sydel. He went to high school at Charlotte Christian High School. Curry wanted to wear the number thirty in honor Dell who wore the number thirty but the jersey was too big so Curry wore twenty. He had also met a current teammate Kevin Durant. Curry met Durant at the age of ten when Durant walked into a little league game seeing Curry shooting from a great distance, Durant wondered who the kid was.
There are many drills that can be used to improve a player 's conditioning and skill levels.

. .”) when I was even younger than that. I coached the sport for like eighteen years straight until Mr. Daly, our recently retired athletic director, talked me into taking over the girls’ basketball program. For Pete’s sake, I still PLAY the game. The Rebels, my team in the Pioneer Valley Over-Thirty Baseball League, won its second championship in four years a couple weeks ago, and I played shortstop and third base, pitched a little and batted cleanup most games.
In my first year of gymnastics I learned tons of new skills and built up my strength because I knew I needed to be able to keep up with others on the level. At the end of the first year I learned I had not achieved all of the requirements to level up, I was crushed, but I learned the things I would need to accomplish to be able to move up the next year. Being able to fail taught me to look at the positives from the journey and learn from them. Some people may argue that the destination is more important than the journey because it feels good to achieve a goal. I agree with it feeling good to achieve a goal but you can’t forget how you got there.
As the music crescendos around me and I toss my saber, everything else fades away until it's just me, the music and my saber. Months of hard work, dedication, and lessons I have learned come flashing back. I can't believe that there was a time before I knew how to spin anything, even a flag. Color Guard has helped me grow as a person over the last few years. 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 I Am I believe that competitive cheerleading taught me how to believe in myself. I couldn’t count how many times I have told myself that I could not do something. When I was twelve-years old I took up a love for competitive cheerleading. Every time I told myself I couldn’t do something, I wouldn’t even try. My coach told me it was a “mental block” and it was common in athletes that throw themselves in mid-air hoping to land on their feet.
Sometimes they’re seen at sporting events or even on live interviews for the world to see showing that they have recovered and returned to working and living but it’s what happens behind the scenes that is the truth. Walking again is the work of months upon months of surgeries, physical therapy, doctor prescribed medications and instructions, and huge amounts of mental strength. Children see jumping on one leg or riding in a wheel chair as a joke or a fun activity, but until living that way is the only choice, it’s impossible to realize the struggle and risks that come with such a tragedy of actually having a leg surgically removed. It’s not something that can be undone, and while follow with a victim for the rest of their
I owe to them not only my success in the sport, but also my confidence and determination. My first experience playing softball was by no means extraordinary. I did not make an amazing play, or hit a homerun to improve my team’s confidence in my capabilities. The memory still rests in my mind as a reminder of my own confidence and the beginning of the construction of my own positive self image. I will forever be grateful to my friends for leading me into a sport which continues to encourage me to display my best abilities, and achieve more than I ever imagined
My parents started me off playing all the sports most kids played. I swam, played softball, basketball, and soccer. My true passion was softball, and at the age of ten, I decided to solely focus on that. Being an exceptional athlete came at a cost. I gave up most of my social life in middle school and high school.
Even though I recently stopped playing softball, I played for ten long years with my dad by my side the whole time as the head coach. Although at one point I counted fourteen trophies and seven medals, there is always one trophy that I smile when I see it. The trophy is a metallic silver color with a metal glove on top of the metal base. On the front on the trophy, it has a plaque that says, 14u ASA PA State Championships State Runner-Up. To earn this trophy, my team and I had to play 7 games in one weekend.
