I have been a serious athlete since I was eight, when I started to play travelling softball. However, I didn’t just play softball. I also played soccer, volleyball, basketball, and danced. All of those other activities, competitive or not, helped me become a great athlete. Playing multiple sports can help people build different sets of muscles, be a better team player, and truly enjoy what they are doing.
I am very outgoing which means I make lots of friends, from baseball I made friends from Delaware, Tennessee, Maryland, New York, and more and I hope one day I am remembered as the kid who didnt care where you where from or who you where he would always try to talk to you because he was always looking for new friends and loved
So, you may be asking, Why would doing well at basketball camp make that much of a difference? Simple! Because the most important step in getting recruited to play college basketball is getting coaches to NOTICE You. Standing out at B-Ball Camp can get you noticed FAST.
In today’s Modern American Society Track and Field records have changed so much over time being that they have gotten a lot better and people are taking their competitiveness to the next level by stepping up and setting a goal for themselves and each time they reach that goal they make a bigger and better goal and it just continues from there. Becoming an athlete takes time and dedication in what kind of athlete you would like to be. Every sport takes training and the love of the sport. No one is going to want to be in a sport that they don't like and training for a sport that you don't like is pointless because not having the love for the sport is a way of knowing that you are not going to push yourself to your full potential in the sport
This shows that travel sports can lead to a high level in that sport. Not only are the kids playing the sport they love, they are learning about other countries. Furthermore, people find out that kids benefit early on from playing travel sports as kids. An article illustrates that Don Westfall, the general Manager of the Connecticut Sportsplex in North Branford, wrote how they are realizing that kids are better athletes at a higher level because they began playing that support at a young age. They have improved those skills through travel sports with a higher level of training (Kountz).
Martial arts are known as the ultimate self-defence mechanism for not only kids and teenagers, but for adults and old men and women too. Most people nowadays think that martial arts are just a type of sport. But, whoever learns martial arts knows better that martial arts are more than just a type of sport. It cannot be denied that martial arts can give negative side effect if it is used in the wrong way, but, there are more advantages than disadvantages in learning martial arts. So, everyone should practice martial arts because martial arts are one of the excellent ways to get in shape, it can improve fighting ability, people who do martial arts will learn to be discipline and martial arts fit mind and body when stress.
It allows athletes to strive harder for success because then they know coach is looking at everyone, not matter their age or name. An athlete also feels better about himself when coach is watching, which can result in more confidence and a better performance. Head coaches need to look at skill level instead of the name or age when it comes to varsity players because they are out there to win, not please people. If an underclassman is truly better than an upperclassman, then the underclassman should receive the opportunity to play above the upperclassman. I have been a baseball varsity starter for Royalton High School since eighth grade and have loved every inning of it.
Then I could at last dribble constantly and smoothly in place or even while running. This accomplishment was my first step up into my intense pursuit to become a first-rate basketball player (or so I thought). Then I tried to shoot the into the hoop, but like dribbling I had failed, I couldn't even hit the basketball hoop. Though I continuously kept on trying to get better. It’s like they say practice makes perfect.
In conclusion, athletes are paid fairly because of the inspiration they are to thousands of kids around the world. These athletes also entertain so many people and work very hard for their money, therefore they deserve
Second, basketball has taught me what it means to work hard, be a team player, push through, and to never give up. There were days that I did not want to practice or I felt like I had too much on my plate, but I knew that I had a commitment to my team which meant I was always there for them. These are important life lessons to learn not only as a player, but as a student. Lessons from basketball have positively impacted all areas of my life.
Additionally, sports are extremely important in building one’s character through hard work, learning to work with others on a team and by learning how to cope with the joy of winning and the inevitability of losing. One thing to know about any sport is that there is no free ride. You earn recognition, all your playing time, and a starting position through hard work. I grew up playing all kinds of different
For many year people have used outdated protective gear for sports, for as long as anyone can remember and as far back as any book has gone, there has been protective equipment. Many years ago in Ancient Egypt, the Pharaoh of Egypt would wear protective gear so nobody could assassinate him. Now, in almost every sport professional and youth athletes are wearing protective equipment. There are classes in colleges and universities the teach sports safety and what protective gear should be worn, and when it should be worn. Many youth sports leagues can not afford the top gear, so kids are using worn out gear which increases the chance of injuries which could even be lifelong.
Imagine you love playing sports but now the school is about to band all sports in you school, what would or could you do to stop this from happening? I have read some different types of articles based on is sports are good or bad. For example, I read the article name “Have Youth Sports Become Too Intense?” and in this article the issues of sports are good and it is bad are debated.
I agree with the writer Mark Singletary. I believe athletes get paid what they deserve. They need the money just in case they get a severe injury. When the fans come to see the athletes play the franchise increases paying the athletes more money. The owners don’t have to worry about the pay because they are payed by the sponsors and the ticket buyers.
