Athletes in high school begin to start their legacy. History about this compelling start to an athletes career took place in 20th century. In 1903 New York City’s Public School Athletic League for Boys was established, and formal contests between children, organized by adults, emerged as a way to keep the boys coming back to activities, clubs, and school (thealantic.com). By 1910 17 other cities across the United States had formed their own competitive athletic leagues modeled after New York City’s PSAL (thealantic.com). From then to now, high school athletes having become the turning point in the students’ lives, parents’ lives, and community itself, but if the students want to make their career successful in their respected sport, then they need
Diefenbach and Lauer (2009) suggested that coaches should develop a coaching philosophy that embraces goals commonly related to youth sport, which include the personal and social values associated with, and the life skills that can be learned from, participation: character,
Unlike the other research, this study will not just discuss the different challenges, the researchers will also give inputs for them to be inspired to join being an Athlete.

Students from all over the country have dreams of playing a college sport because the chance of them playing professional sports would increase tremendously. These students have put a lot of effort and time in training for competitions in the games they play in addition to that they are obligated to keep up with their academicals. They have suffered along the way with multiple injuries that led to early retirement and shattered dreams. Even though college
You feel relaxed when you're with your friends, and when you're doing something that you enjoy doing. However, one side reasons why sports bring many together and connect is maybe they might want the same goal at the end to win a event or make a meaningful memory with others. By participating in a sport, or multiple sports, it can have a positive impact on one’s
Social Theories provides us with insights and explanations as to why people act the way they do. Sports is a human activity that involves physical skill and hard work. Sports is also governed by a set of rules and it is taken competitively. It is said that sports is taken seriously and is very important for athletes and even for the fans, some even say it is like a religion for them. Though not everyone in the society follow any sport, because they see that it has no relation to their lives. The connection of Social Theories and Sports is seen in how we see different kinds of human behavior and interactions of individuals; it can provide positive and negative outcomes. With the help of Social Theories we can grasp the process, patterns, values,
Sports not only create a culture, they also affect culture. With every rise of a culture, new standards are established by individuals within the cultures boundaries. Participants involved with cultural decisions are affected by these established standards. Increasing those who are allowed to participate in sport competitions increase the poll of people who actively participate in the government. Champions make their mark upon the history of their culture and increase their spectators involvement in society.
It should be more about fun. I think that the author has seen this matter quite practically as she says that the competition can be a part of the adult life and must be taught to the children but sports should not be the medium to do it. The competition among children make it stressful for them and it’s almost impossible to enjoy the sports.
Around 45 million children aged 6-18 play organized sports in the United States; each dedicating their time to becoming the best in their league. This pressure to be the best comes from everyone that surrounds them; their parents, coaches, and even teammates push them to give their all. However, in recent years, there had been a heated debate about whether these sports are becoming too intense for young, developing athletes. Many argue that the competition of organized sports places way too much pressure on the shoulders of young athletes, and can be mentally and physically harmful to developing athletes. Others argue however, that sports help to teach young athletes the values of discipline and hardwork.
Earlier this week, the Dallas Cowboys faced the New York Giants on the football field, and the Giants narrowly defeated the Cowboys by a margin of only one touchdown. As could be expected, many Cowboys fans were upset with the result, and results like these have led many to ponder whether competition is healthy by nature. It is healthy if one accepts that perfection cannot be achieved, that someone is always better, and that competition leads to self-improvement. In sports, players may have goals or even dreams of becoming the “perfect player,” never making mistakes and always playing their best.
Most high school athletes across America share one common aspiration: play their sport at the next level in college. For a select number of fortunate athletes, that dream becomes a reality when they commit to a school and sign their letter of intent. But are they really fortunate? College athletics are oftentimes not as glamorous as one would think. The transition to college is not a walk in the park, but add a rigorous summer conditioning program, two-a-days everyday, and the pressures of coaches you have yet to impress, and you have a recipe for disaster.
These athletes of big-time division I college football and basketball teams aren’t your typical college students. They were chosen to come to these universities for a reason. However it is not for a higher education, rather than to play sports. The student-athletes of today’s big-time college sports are closer to full-time employees rather than students. In this paper, I’ll present
Competitive sports provide a community which kids can work with and beat other teams with. “Playing a sport helps children develop social skills which would benefit them even when they grow older. Playing sports teaches them about teamwork and cooperating with others. They learn to interact with people from different ages” (Mahaseth). When these kids grow up, they can use these skills to be able to cooperate and talk with their colleagues.
The ‘want’ of the athlete is to things then only more teaching and learning is going to take place. On the other hand, before going towards prizes or winning things, what a student need is education. The ‘need’ is to learn. The coach will teach and the learners are going to learn. That
