Middle school students are competing in competitive sports which both have a positive and negative side. Some players say that sports can help people lose weight and keep active. But on the other half states that it can be dangerous and can cause future physical damage. Generally competitive sports can be fun but it can come with consequences of regret of young children 's lives. My reasons of competitive sports being bad are that it can take up the participants time and it can pressure or overwhelm them in a sense of them being stressed. Second reason is that the injuries can be vital and can cause future damages to your physical state and maybe mental state if overwhelmed too much for working on the sport. My third and final reason of competitive
“My thing is, if you want to go, you want to go. There’s no point in making fun of each other’s moms out here.” (Brandon Prust) As we all know, there are fights in professional hockey, like the NHL and AHL. Some sports have completely banned fighting, but the NHL has not outright banned it yet. As debates around fighting in the NHL circumnavigate, one thing is for sure, hockey has had a major history of fighting, and that draws fans. To showing that fights are safer, building momentum, and a sort of self officiating, there is only one correct answer in this debate for this special and idiosyncratic sport, and it is to keep the fights.
The game of ice hockey is a very rough and aggressive sport which involves two teams battling against each other on a frozen sheet of ice. With this in mind, it may look easy to hit a black puck with a wooden stick into a goal, or a net, but not everyone can do it (“Ice” para 1). The origins, the early organization, and the changes in the game of ice hockey all help determine how the game developed overtime from the past to the present which in turn created a game that has been around for centuries all over the world.
Hockey plays a huge role in my life, I’m on the ice almost every day of the week. But the question is how has it made an impact on my life and changed who i am today? To what extent does it make my life more exciting or more interesting? The simplest answer, would be to say that it has affected me positively on every level and in every way possible, although of course that is not the best answer. And there really isn’t any precise or perfect answer, but there is evidence of a difference.
Youths should not be banned from dodgeball, cheer leading, and football. One reason why kids should be allowed to play dodgeball is that not only does it teach them god eye coordination and many other mental and physical skills but, many kids enjoy having the challenge of going against someone or even that going against someone bigger. I do not think kids should be forced to play dodgeball just because it gives them good mental and physical skills but, I do think other kids who do enjoy a challenge should be allowed to. Author Rick Hanetho, founder of the National Amatur Dodgeball says, “The game allows kids who are not good athletes to participate in a team sport.” (171). It would allow kids to not only be in a team sport but, also learn to not hurt others because they would understand what it would feel like. One reason why children should be allowed to do cheer leading is that cheer leading is something most young people find and grow into and then it becomes their whole life career. Cheer leading is something that could be modified more often and probably more medical attention could be near at competitions. Jim Lord says, “ You can minimize the chance
Contact sports are the reason kids are getting hurt. Contact sports are good for kids.
Concussions and countless injuries don 't sound very fun, however contact sports involve much more than just injuries and people hurting each other. Contact sports are the building blocks of a true gentleman since they benefit in every single aspect of maturity. Many experts agree that the benefits of being active and being involved in contact sports outweigh the risks of possible injury. These are values of Teamwork, Respect, Enjoyment, Discipline and Sportsmanship which are eventually what makes the game special for those who enjoy the environment and culture they create. They define the game.
There has long been the debate for whether kids should be allowed to participate in competitive sports. Most people against say that sports make kids get severely injured, which is true, but only if the kid is unprotected and not in a safe environment, which is not the case with sports these days. In fact, sports promote more of a healthy lifestyle. Sports also promote life skills and help kids later in life Sports should be for all ages and kids.
The book’s evolving opinion about hockey might be interpreted as a tool for the public to read and perhaps comprehend the negative reality that occurs in and outside of the story. Cody’s outlooks on hockey develop from positive, to negative, and then, again, to positive. At first, Cody loves hockey; it makes him happy, dedicated, hardworking and is a positive outlet leading him to a bright future. When Cody begins playing for Coach Connors’ team, the abuse begins and his love for hockey is replaced with alcohol abuse, suicidal thoughts, and misery. His positive view of hockey come to be negative because of the effects of Connors’ abuse that he, in the words of Theo Fleury, young hockey player abused by Graham James, “did not have the emotional skills, the knowledge, or the ability to stop [it].” (Globe and Mail) Once Cody comes forward about the abuse and the public’s interest has lessened, he realizes that hockey was not the source of his pain, Connors was, and now that Connors was gone, he could go back to loving hockey the way he always did, without abuse, alcohol and misery clouding his judgment. In Power Play, as hockey is Cody’s whole life, it is his greatest strength as well as his greatest weakness which is why hockey culture is illustrated by both positive and negative
I am writing a reflection on the essay Rink Rage by James Deacon. I would recommend it to anyone involved in recreational sports especially parents. In this essay you learn about the aggression parents have towards the referees and how it’s influencing more parents to have outbursts and ruin the sport for the children. Over the years parents have been becoming more aggressive towards the referees to the point where they are actually assaulting them. This is becoming a much bigger issue though the offenders are not the majority the assaults are becoming more aggressive and in some cases have ended in death, this is something that needs to be dealt with and recognized. I think this essay is significant in that it should be recognized by the communities

When Saul plays the game fairly and all of a sudden when he gets hit, he fights back, “As we were skating back to our bench the Knights center slashed me behind the knees and I fell to the ice. There was no whistle. The crowd howled. My teammates even laughed. He was seated on the Knights bench by then and I skated over lazily. They all looked at me and made faces. I flipped my right glove off at the last second and drove my fist right into his face. I fought three of them before they hauled me off the ice. That was the end of any semblance of joy in the game for me” (Wagamese 165). Saul cannot continue with everyone being rude to him, he then finally lets out his rage and then gave up on the game. Saul wants to change his path and want to start working in Manitouwadge. When Saul return to Manitouwadge, he talks to Virgil and about how he does not want to play hockey big time, “‘I just want to play the game, Virg. I can’t do it with all that bullshit getting in the way.’ [He] nodded. ‘So what are you going to do now?’ ‘Go to work, I guess’ ” (171). Saul does not want to play the game because of all of the nonsense he gets from his games and Saul is now connecting to his past and how Father Leboutillier abused and took his innocence with hockey. He
Growing up, I spent most of my time playing sports and trying to stay active as much as possible. As I got older, I became more serious with field hockey, and I was determined to make the varsity team my junior year of high school. All summer I spent working on my stick skills on the field, and my endurance in the gym in order to do everything I could to make the varsity squad. When tryouts started in the end of August, I hadn’t performed the way I wanted to, and girls I thought had no chance of making the team, played so well over the three days. However, I was hopeful I still had a shot on the varsity roster. On the last day of tryouts, all fifty of us were to find out what team we had made, or for the few girls, that they were getting cut
The Sport is a devastating road to heartbreak and failure. (I suggest, To experience sports, you have to experience heartbreak and failure - sounds a bit awkward to say “the sport”).
