Being a leader involves many different characteristics. A leader must set the example for all others in the group, because if they are to show up late to practice, there isn’t a reason that any of the other members should not do the same. A leader must take risks for the benefit of the group as well as make sacrifices for it. Becoming the leader of the group requires for them to be the most dedicated. They must work harder and not be afraid to lead the group. A leader must be willing and ready to not only give orders but receive them.
Being on a team is a special thing. It’s just like being a part of a family. I have been a member of the girl's varsity lacrosse team for four years. Many lessons have been learned from the wins, the loses, and the successes that our team has had in the past years.
I was lost. Friends were not at my disposal. Time was in abundance. Thoughts was all i had. Freshman through Christmas break of my sophomore year I attended Berks Catholic High School, but before that I graduated from a feeder school named Scared Heart School. This school had diversity, respect, and a place for all students from kindergarten to eighth grade. After graduation all local feeder schools merged into the high school, Berks Catholic. This was a place to start over or grow into the person you desire to become and to make friends. I was so overwhelmed and could not have been more happy in life once I arrived, but it took less then a school year for me to realize I was unhappy. I was denied from starting my own club to help less fortunate kids in my area, my
I was rounding the base, running to third I could hear my mom and mina (grandma) yelling “run maddison, run”. In that moment I knew my love for softball would take off. I was about 4 or 5 years old, on a T-ball team named after the major league baseball team the Red Sox. I had games every Saturday that my mom, sister (Cassidy) and Mina would some to while my dad worked most of the time. I continued to play T-ball throughout the years than eventually moved to the level of softball. I learned to absolutely love the sport and learned how to play well with others and work as a team and in a quick moving and fast pace environment.
In the transition of recreational soccer to competitive soccer, many aspects of the game changed. The game got faster, the girls get meaner, and a leader had to rise. Leaders are hardworking, responsible, and possibly a role model to others around them. Stripping on the blue captains band, either resting at the top of where my sock folds or molding the shape of my arm, is how I have shown leadership in the eight years of playing competitive soccer. The captains band represents an intuition of the burning desire to lead a group of young women throughout the duration of a ninety-minute game. It’s an honor to be the one who leads the team to success and to pick the team back up whenever we may fall. Being the captain of the team was earned. The
For most of my life lived in Wisconsin. I graduated from Mahone middle school and had mostly A's and B's from my class. Most of my classes were not honors and it never appeared to me that I would go far in life. So when I enter Glen and Fike High school, everything changed dramatically in my academic.
I drive my white Nissan maxima over the speed bumps probably a little too fast as I leave the parking lot. Once I reach the stop sign, I take a moment to turn around and look at the beautiful school building behind me. Rigby High School—I can’t believe I go there. To me, that beautiful building is almost as breathtaking as the work out I just finished; running over and over through the halls of the school because it’s too cold to run outside. What used to be a small school when I was young has seemed to grow to be competitive and quite big, and seems to grow bigger each year. I’ve lived here ever since I was three. I have a very balanced and happy life here in Rigby and successful career as a student at Rigby High. I run up to ten miles each day in the fall and spring to become an exceptional athlete in both track and cross country in which I’ve had victorious seasons. I go home to three or more hours of homework each night to get straight A’s in all my classes including AP and college courses. Somehow I have found the time to go to sporting events, parties, and service projects where I have made so many friends that are indeed true characters of strength, joy, and goodness. I have worked very hard to obtain the
When I was young, money was not a big deal when I asked for something. If I wanted it, I begged my mom to get it for me. I never understood why I was unable to get the new toy that just came out, or the new shoes that every girl was about to have on Monday morning when I walked through the doors of Gretna Middle School. The summer before I started middle school, I decided to join a volleyball team. Needless to say, I fell in love with the game and continually tried to better my performance. In seventh grade, when fall was starting to come to an end, I decided to propose the idea of Premier Volleyball Club to my mom; however, she quickly and without hesitation, shot me down. Now, at the time, I had no idea what kind of a financial situation

Before i came to Watkins Memorial Middle school i went to Hamilton Township .

In past years, my high school swim team has never designated two individuals to be team captains. However, this year my coach decided that our team needed a girl and boy who could step up and lead the team when necessary. As team captain, I believe that it is important that we give back to our community as a team. Not only are we taking time to volunteer, but we also grow closer to the people on our team.
According to chapter 7 in terms of organizational behavior, a team is a group of two or more people working together to achieve a certain goal. They interact and influence each other through the things that they do. In the army cream team case study, the Varsity boat crew team kept on losing to the Junior Varsity boat crew team. Coach Preczewski now feel like he has to do something to fix the issue. There are many reason why the Varsity crew team lose so much against the Junior Varsity team. One is the fact that they don’t seem to be able to work well together. The team has so many people who think that they can do whatever they want. They don’t have the mindset of being a team player. The Varsity crew team had never been able to find someone
Successful leaders are generated through guidance, support, and patience. In the sports world, the parent-child relationship is one that can be highly stressful, especially at the most competitive level. The child can disagree with the parent’s advice on technique, strategy, preparation, and beyond. In the heat of competition, the child may pay unnecessary attention to the parent’s shift in body language following a mistake or missed opportunity. This could have negative impact on the child’s performance during that particular event. However, long-term parental involvement ultimately enables their child to become strong, independent leaders. Through the parent’s guidance, atheletes learn to have
