Afterward, I asked my uncle if he could teach me the game of basketball and he replied back saying yes. Suddenly, I started to get real go at the sport, so I decide to show my gym coach my special skill. After showing him what I could do, he pull me to the side and asked, “Would I like to play for his AUU team?” I answered, “Yes”. Next thing I realized I was playing every Friday at Westwood community center. Actually after a few
He lived in a good neighborhood and played basketball with older kids on playgrounds. He attended Overbrook High School and that’s when he developed a term which he called a “deep love for basketball”, and it is very well true. In the three seasons he played basketball in high school, Wilt scored over 2,200 points. Wilt worked hard on becoming a good basketball player and at an early age he became a very great basketball player. Wilt played outstanding in high school, which led to over 200 universities recruiting him.
When I woke up in the hospital, I realize that I couldn’t remember anything during the seizure; I can barely remember before the seizure triggers it.And this incident took everything away from me, I was sad and depress. This might be one of the reasons why the coaches cut me from the team. Even though I loved the sport of basketball so much, but it seems like God didn’t want me to pursue thispath.I couldn’t understand why God took away my dream and goal, but later on I realize that Godhad a better plan for me. What I really learn from this incident is that no matter what kind of trials or obstacles I’ll face in the future, I have to always be thankful for what I have and be more positive when I’m facing
Most great players started playing basketball when they were as young as 4 years old. I wanted to be just like them but I started playing when I was 11. My 5th grade summer my family bought our first basketball hoop. That was a big step for my newly found passion. On that summer I played basketball every single day ( with my brother or not).
I also started the 21 day training program from the book “How To Be Better At Basketball In 21 days” by James Wilson. This week I learned about topics related to shooting form, dribbling, and layups. I watched two videos by Howard Elite Basketball and ILovebasketballTV on how to get better shooting form. I learned key points like how there’s no single perfect shooting form and that everyone 's form is unique. I also learned that you generate power from your lower body, and that you should have a
When recess or free time came around each school day, after lunch, some guys including my older brother would shoot baskets and play games with teams. Sadly, I never got chosen because “I was a girl and knew nothing about sports”. Although this upset me, I didn’t take it to heart. I started practicing at home with kids in my neighborhood. After weeks or maybe even months of practice, my older brother then noticed how good I was getting at the sport.
He asked her to hang out somewhere else some other time. That then leads to a really good relationship. A few months of training for basketball, being focused, being under the radar, going unnoticed for so long, he finally was able to try out for the team. The coach walked in and he realized that it was Elizabeth the same girl he 's been in a relationship with. He knew she was an unemployed basketball coach and personal trainer, but didn 't know she got a job.
My mom tried to run the energy out of me by taking me outside to play, but that was just not enough. When I started school my mom thought of putting me in some sort of sport. I started with soccer I liked it was just not the thing for me. Then my mom put me basketball I really liked it and found it a lot of fun. My coach said that I was really good atnd should continue in it because I could do great things.So I will know next season, I was for sure going to do it.
One of the biggest parts of my life has to be the sport of basketball. I played every year I could since I can remember. I participated in youth commission, then modified, Jv, and all the way to my senior year. With this being my last year all I care about is the team 's success and making a push into sectionals. But the one thing I have not payed attention to is how much the sport has pushed to be a better leader and how to take criticism from coaches and teammates.
I have been playing sports just about as long as I have been able to walk, and over the years of playing these sports i have become pretty passionate and competitive with everything i just want to be the best at it we could see who can hold their breaths the longest and i would be upset if i lost. Around my 10th grade year i decided that i wanted to play basketball and just basketball so i decided to quit all my other sports i was involved after the seasons were over. Ever since i made this decision basketball has been my plan A i have planned on attending a college and playing basketball at that said college, then once my four years is i hope on getting an opportunity to continue my basketball career somewhere else god willing. All my life i understood that a plan B would be needed but never really thought too hard about it. Around 9th grade i wanted to be nurse but never really stuck with it.

Last year I played basketball for the Bath team and Red Cedar team. In my last game I had 24 points, over 10 rebounds, and 5 blocks. After the game the opposing coach came up to me and asked if I wanted to join an AAU team and at the time I didn’t know what that was. He gave me his number and I learned that AAU was a league for really good basketball players. “Are you really serious about basketball?” said my Dad “Yes Dad, I’m sure” I said “Then let’s call the coach” said Dad Then we called the coach and started going to practice.
“It is only a game” is a common saying I have heard several times in my life. However, it does not explain the crazy actions and immense passion I experience on the PIT floor for basketball games. These feelings reached a pinnacle point during my freshman year basketball game against our arch-rivals, the Bettendorf Bulldogs. “If we can keep Bear from posting up and scoring, we should be win the game,” my friend Bryce analyzed. I responded, “We will need to shoot the three ball to have a chance, Bettendorf is a really good team”.
No it did not come that easily, in the beginning she didn’t even know she wanted to play basketball. When she was just a little girl, her parents got her into gymnastics and cheerleading and for a while she did only that and nothing else. She started getting older and started thinking more for herself and getting her own ideas of what she really wanted to do. At the age of 11 she decided she wanted to change up her life and try something new. This one day her dad was
The time I almost got cut from the basketball team.the first day of tryouts I didn’t come because I didn’t have my physical at the time.but when I got it I was there and lots of people were and only fifteen could qualify. On the first day all we had to do was shoot and show our form. But we did do something a little fun you had to get a partner and perform some moves on him. So the coach said “go” me and my partner which was Robert. Raced down the basketball court.
