As seen in the picture my junior year I was finally on varsity. I didn’t expect to play or contribute much, I was just happy to be on the team. The third game rolls around and were playing one of the best teams in the league, if not the state. So, i 'm expecting to go in once were down by thirty or so and i 'll have fun playing the garbage minutes.
Usually in the summertime or whenever it stays warm and not too dark, I head over to the parks and watch some playground basketball games. I see all types of ballers, young, old, half court and full court players and oh yeah, I see basketball trainers working out players that are trying to improve their game for the upcoming season. This past summer it was kinda dead and it wasn't even that hot.
We may not have accomplished all of our team goals, like winning the league, but the season was still great. My favorite memory was senior night because I was able to go out one last time and play in front of the home crowd. I remember coach telling me to go out there and do what I do best. That night I played one of my best games all season scoring three
If you are a volleyball girl you’ll understand that feeling when volleyball games become your entire life and you can 't get enough of them, but why not change a little bit between both environments to make it more interesting and improve your skills. If you are an indoor volleyball player but you live near to the beach, even if you don’t, beach volleyball is an amazing option for you to try on summer days - or the other way around if you are a beach volleyball kind of girl try to do it indoor, It won’t be easy either way but you’re going to love it! FUN HISTORY FACTS
I’ve played since I was a eleven years old, with the same coach for my entire volleyball career. The last two years of my life has gotten easier for me to learn on my own, because I relate everything in life to the sport of volleyball, or any sport in general. Engaging my life in this sport has created a family outside of my family. In a family of teammates you learn how to trust each other and also learn how to cooperate with one another like a well functioning society. In sports you also learn to be selfless; you learn how to care of others, and you learn how to be responsible for your teammates.
After cheering for 4 years, I can tell you that being on a team is way more than just “doing stuff together”. It’s encouraging each other, having one another's backs, and being more than just friends; but being a family too. And just like family members fight, I’ve had my fair share of arguments with my teammates. I realized not everyone thinks or learns new things the same. This was a hard concept for me to grasp because I had my ideas, I knew what worked, and I couldn't figure out why everyone else made things so difficult.
I have been on the most successful club team around. We have gotten third place at our national tournament two years in a row, and also won our national tournament one year. People say “you do not know what you have had, until you have lost it.” The meaning of this quote has become appallingly clear, as it has become my reality.
My parents are huge baseball fans, so they decided to sign me up for a little league tee ball program in hopes that I would one day play softball in highschool or college. This is comical looking back on it, because knowing me now, softball is one of the last things I can see myself doing. I was very shy growing up however I do vaguely remember making a few friends while in little league, so the social aspect wasn’t an issue. These tee ball practices last for about month until I dramatically decided that tee ball, or any outdoor sport for that matter, simply wasn’t for me. I would not suggest throwing a temper tantrum in the middle of the outfield and running to the bleachers because you can’t take the heat.
But it didn’t really matter to me what level I was, as long as I was doing gymnastics. Around December, on the competitive team’s side of the gym, a coach began to recognize me. He told my coach, a short strong former gymnast, that he wanted to talk to my mom about possibly moving on to the real team. I was overjoyed, but scared. I had a feeling that it wasn’t the best for me
I got to experience many exciting parts of Florida, such as the heat, which compared to Michigan is extremely hot, turtles and sparklers, campfires, Ice Cream, and more! Mostly, the trip consisted of card games, swimming, and good food, but many other small events, such as seeing a giant turtle, happened that made the trip one of the funnest trips I’ve ever had. One day, I wish I could go there again with all my family from my dad’s
Steven loves to work out and play basketball. He’s a very big fan of the Knicks and, Carmelo Anthony. Steven played at the JV Basketball team for Truman but because his grades were not good they took him off the team. The position he played was point guard and, shooting guard. Every summer Ada use to send Steven to Dominican Republic to spend the summer with his grandparents.
After the end of a JV football season, the varsity coach always selects a few players to move them up with the varsity. Getting moved up with varsity is a huge deal. It means that the varsity coach thinks you’ll make a good impact on the team next year and sees potential in you. I always knew I wasn 't a good football player, but that didn 't matter to me because I loved the sport. I didn 't start at any positions my freshman or sophomore year.
The Campus Activity Board usually sponsors and puts together bingo on the last Thursday of every month. On the night of October 26th from eight o’clock to nine o’clock they had bingo in the cafeteria as usual, and the big prize that night was an apple watch. I have not won anything so far in bingo, and that night was no exception. I was, however, one of the first three people standing for blackout bingo when we were trying to win the grand prize, and that was pretty cool. I did not think that bingo would be such a big event here on campus
Not to mention, the ticket revenue from almost guaranteed sold-out games on college campuses cannot be ignored. The college football playoff will generate more football games to increase profit. College sports can be a marvelous value experience and a focal point for community-building. But only a few colleges have programs that can provide such benefits without imposing significant costs on their institutions. A 16 playoff solves this problem by giving more teams a chance to play in the playoff.
I was in a chess tournament about two years ago against many people in my school because I joined a chess club. Unfortunately, I didn 't get far in my last one and was hoping to be better this time. I was doing well until I saw a seventh grader paired with me in the semifinals. I was very nervous because last time I went against a seventh grader I lost and was knocked out from the tournament. But this time I was a lot better at chess than before so I had not a lot of doubts even though a lot of people thought that the grade seven was going to win.
