Hello Mrs. Gawne! How has your summer played out? I hope it has been good. This summer I read The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown and I found his details about dedication and team work very tasteful. As I was reading, thoughts of our chemistry class arose and how Daniel James Brown’s descriptions of how teamwork and practice was so crucial to the success of the team in the sport of rowing related to the class in general.
Many think as a lifeguard you are all on your own, but in this case we had to knit together to save a live just like John Winthrop quoted. Teens from all over the county like Fort Chiswell, Rural Retreat, and Wytheville come to lifeguard at the local Wytheville Community Center. We are from different schools, different atmospheres, and have totally different personalizes, but when the time comes we all unite as one unique team. Coming together is the first thing to do when becoming a team. Diversity can bring a whole new perspective to any tricky situation and brings many great minds together.
Finding My Mermaid Magic It was a hot and sunny Friday afternoon in Aruba. There was a Surf for Breast Cancer event going on at the beach and I was asked to surf in it because i’m one of the top surfers in my division. The competition started at 3:30 so I got there early to clean my board and practice with my bestfriends, Venus and Malani. Venus was a short redhead with green eyes and she loved to take pictures on the beach and post them while Malani was more on the shy side. Malani was average sized with golden skin, curly dark brown hair, and loved animals.
What shape is best for me? Which surfboard will offer me some assistance with learning quicker? These are regular inquiries that individuals experience while picking their first surfboard.

Paddling is one of the key parts to surfing and catching a wave. Like it or not you spend most of your time paddling. Whither it is paddling against the current, paddling to the break or peak of the wave, which is the highest point of the wave. Or in most cases paddling to catch a wave. It’s all about position.
Since, I have an unconditional love for volleyball I took it upon myself to gather all the teams and have them warm up as a team. By the time they began drills, the varsity coach was rolling in to practice. A few minutes later the junior varsity coach would join us. We greeted each other, socialized a little about the girls, then she gave me “the okay” to coach the junior varsity team. The junior varsity girls insisted that I help them in practice, so I began with a pep talk to motivate and prepare them for
In the previous season, lessons were the largest source of revenue and are an activity that encourages customers to come back and continue their sailing education. Due to this and our survey showing 41.7% of respondents having an interest in sailing lessons, we recommend that Sail Peoria makes a connection between the cruises and lessons. When customers are trying to sail themselves or when the end of the cruise is approaching, it is important for Sail Peoria to inform the customers of the available lessons and provide them with a discount coupon. This will bring customers into the classroom who previously would not have, creating more return customers and therefore heightened
Step 7: The Atonement. After achieving the goal of running thirteen miles, I want to push myself even more and try a triathlon. While training for this triathlon I have learned how to swim better, have biked sixteen miles, and got an even better time in a 5k run. This has been the most intense training I have done in my life so far. Even though, it is hard training for this triathlon I think this will be a good experience for me.
This organization has taught me to never give up and to push beyond my limits to be successful. Having gone from just a team member to a swim team captain has shown me that although pushing your limits can cause you to break, in the end it will be worth it. I have put many summer hours and long days of practicing just to be the best. With that being said, swimming is not only a sport but a way of life. If you work hard at something and put in those extra hours, you will be successful.
Through the classes, labs, and outdoor missions The Marine Science Center, in Pigeon Key, was just as it was advertised to my class: a Marine Science camp. We participated in several animal based adventures including tide pooling, which was my favorite animal-based adventure. I loved walking around the edges of the sea looking for small, oddball invertebrate. We worked in small groups and it was almost like my group was creating an extremely large collection of them. After an hour or two of intense searching, every team was called to a small tent to input their findings into the pool of invertebrates.
We asked students to raise their hands if they have seen the movie Finding Nemo or Finding Dory, and as expected, they were all huge fans! For our incentive, we will have a “turtle station” and a “fish station.” Students will be placed into two groups in order for them to design their own fish or turtle. Students will be given a plate in which they will add pre-cutout shapes of a variety of colors of construction paper, streamers, and tissue paper to their turtle and fish models. Students will be provided with glue sticks in order to glue on this material. Students will also be provided with markers and crayons to add any addition designs.
Because of Missy 's mindset her coach had stuck with her. Her good attitude throughout the sport encourages and helps her and her teammates to try to become the best athletes possible. "And the swimming star has also had an effect closer to home, as her team-mates reveal how the 17 year-old 's high spirits spur them on to try and match her standards." () A constructive outlook has helped Missy come to the point she is currently at. It has also continued to push her and her teammates to score better and always compete.
I volunteered for SNAP (Special Needs Adaptive Program), where once a week, I would help a student with one-on-one swimming instruction. I quickly bonded with the kids in the class and enjoyed going there to talk to them and teach them how to swim; their ultimate goal being to
