Supporters agree that middle school and high school students should have to meet a grade requirement to participate in sports, however some disagree, stating middle school and high school students should not have to meet a grade requirement to participate in sports. It is evident, that middle school and high school students should have to meet a requirement to participate in sports. One justification to prove that middle school and high school students should have to meet a grade requirement to participate in sports is that students who play sports do not always get full athletic scholarships. Sports colleges who give out scholarships, don’t just look for athletic ability but academic too. If a student excelled in sports, but was behind on
Although trophies are a great way to make someone feel good, you shouldn't get a trophy just for showing up. Some experts say that giving trophies to everyone might send the wrong message to a child, therefore everyone should not get a trophy just for participating because trophies can lose their meaning once everyone gets one, you shouldn't get a trophy for simply doing what is asked, and kids need to learn how to make mistakes and learn from them beneficially. One reason not everyone should get a trophy is because trophies can lose their meaning when everyone gets one. On page 27 in the article “Should Everyone Get a Trophy?”
These thoughts could stem from the awareness that they might not be a good fit for the sport that they have been playing. The level of enjoyment greatly and quickly diminishes when you actually realize that what you’re doing isn’t fun anymore. Some athletes realize that they simply do not have the necessary skill set to further compete and/or pursue to participate in higher levels or competition. This could bring about a frustration or disinterest that could make a child want to quit. As a personal example, I have a student who is not really physically gifted but still enjoys trainings and drills during varsity practice.
Pulling a player that is performing isn’t a punishment, it’s just a way for the player to settle down and get their head right again. I understand that it’s the best decision for my team if I get pulled because I’m not doing good. Being selfless is pushing yourself to be better for your team and coaches, its being the best teammate and supporter. Rate (1-10): I rate myself at an eight.
The final reason I disagree is because people can have non interest into after or during school activities. For example, sports might be something people like to watch but not play or not do anything with. But the same thing goes with the yearbook. Picture taking and collaboration with other people is not most peoples strong points. However, student council is the opposite with organization needs to be a thing you can do well.
Without these scholarships many student-athletes would not be able to go to college. In this instance, the NCAA and the university control the player. If the kid doesn’t comply with the NCAA and follow the rules, they take away his scholarship and he’s unable to attend his university or play his sport. Consequently these kids are caught under the NCAA’s spell. For some, the only way out of their community is to play a sport and try to make it to the professionals and the only way to do that is to play for college teams.
With the stop of students using Anabolic steroids to gain the extra advantage, students will be equally compared, and more students may be provided with scholarships for working hard naturally without a supplement. In high school sports the competition can be very high. Said by Norman Frost (2008) “ … I think the main reasons teens use these drugs are to enhance performance in competitive athletics, … “. For some student high school sports is all they know because of how long they've been playing. Others it can be their ticket to college, and getting scholarships for what they can offer to that college team.
Studies show that college level professionals can focus more on their sport than their grades not out of enjoyment or wanting to improve themselves, but rather from the belief that they need to do so to fit into some social construct. For this very reason many athletes don’t make it far through their college education and profession. Most either stop the sport and continue on or drop from the college due to failing grades and this causes damage to that person’s life that cannot be amended. This focus from all of the stereotypes made on them also pressure them to excel at their sport and push them too far. They could become stressed or anxious and this could lead to a multitude of other physical and mental problems.
College basketball players basketball work harder than ever to make it to march madness. They workout a lot to stay fit and to play better. Finally, they get into commercials and don’t get any money from it. What will you do to help college athletes who don’t have money like at the
If each player on the team thinks that they will lose in the game against their rivals, no matter how talented the players are, they’ll lose the game because the players on that team don’t have the will to win that game anymore. If each team member is confident that their team will beat their rivals, they will end up winning. To sum that up, the people with more drive and confidence in themselves will prevail. My team only lost one game. This was after a few offensive struggles, when most of our players gave up and lost their winning attitude.
This is a big decision that could impact the lives of thousands nationwide and revolutionize sports as we know it. College athletes should not be paid because of the many benefits that come with being a student athlete and because it is not a realistic resolution. One reason college athletes should not be paid is because of the many benefits there already are to playing a collegiate sport. One being reduced or free admission also known as a scholarship. As the athletes receiving scholarships have a full ride through college their payment is in the form of education benefits as opposed to direct compensation.
This is because the players are the main aspect of college sports so without them the school would be losing money. “The NCAA, in particular, was an enormously complex and decentralized body and was not under the direct governing authority of presidents. Second, the principle of academic integrity aimed to prevent the widespread exploitation of student-athletes(Hearn)”. The NCAA was formed to fight the problem that could happen which is players going on strike. This could still happen if players feel that they have been mistreated, which is why players should not be allowed to unionize.
Now a days kids don't always have time to study for every single class and them having to make the honor roll will stress kids out. Kids are already stressed out with the amounts of homework and tests given out. Students don't always have the time to study and do homework every day after school. They are going to have practice and games every day after school. Then they will go home and eat and do all that stuff and it will be late.
Do you think it’s fair if a student fails a class and still makes a school sports team other than a student who has all passing grades to not make a sports team? This is completely unfair because if the person who has failing grades is on a sports team, it means they could keep failing and they don't get any punishment. The ¨No Pass, No Play Rule” states that you have to have passing grades to play school sports (¨Project Fact File” 160). Passing grades matter because you need to get a good education and make it on to college and be successful. The writer in the article, ¨How Important Are Good Grades to Career Success,¨ ¨Kids need to focus and do well in school, which will get them into a ´good´ college¨ (1).
Service, scholarship, character, and leadership are the four pillars that make the National Honor Society stand out from other organizations. Espousing these pillars, I find giving back to the community very important, which I show through my service with my church, ELO tutoring, and NHS activities including the OGES Holiday Shoppe and FHS tours. As an officer of the NHS, I will ensure we incorporate a variety of service opportunities to maintain this crucial aspect of our organization. My scholarship is displayed through challenging myself academically with a schedule containing a majority of AP courses, and involving myself in other honor societies including Mu Alpha Theta and Science Honor Society. With a commitment to learning, I feel
