There are people around the world who enjoy playing sports. Playing sports requires a lot of practice to become better and better and if you want to become better than you need the patience in yourself to keep and keep trying. When someone is good at a sport it’s noticeable that they took the time and have patience in himself because no one is automatically good at something. “sports do not build character. They reveal it. “ states John Wooden, an American basketball player and head coach of UCLA.
Some of the sports are basketball, soccer, volleyball, track and field, cross country, golf, baseball, lacrosse, and water polo. These sports can take a lot of your time and they get the players tired, sweaty, competitive, and challenging no matter how the game goes. People enjoy playing these kinds of sport because they can get energy out, play with friends and family, and it makes them feel good.
As Diego Martinez, a freshman, likes to play football because when he was 2 he played it and he continues to. He noticed that throughout time he got better and was able to play it with people he liked to play with. As he explains," the reason why I enjoy playing sports is because it gets my energy out when I'm bored. He loves to play football because it’s a rough sport and I get to play with my friends.” Playing your favorite sport with your friends and family can be really fun because you can enjoy the sport together.
Trying out a sport for the first time can be difficult and stressing but if you keeping trying then you’ll eventually be good at it. As Carlos Rubinstein, a freshman, mentions "When I was little, my mom put me into a soccer team and at first I knew nothing about soccer but I began watching soccer games and paying attention that I wanted to learn. Then I began teaching myself and getting help by some friends too. It was a quite a struggle for me at first but I never stopped.” Getting good at a sport can be difficult but as long as you don’t give up and push yourself to learn then you’ll be good at it.
Throughout time a sport can become very important to you and can inspire in many ways throughout the time that you’ve been playing it. As Rafael Bermudez, a freshmen, states, "... I enjoyed playing basketball because at first it was a struggle and it was hard for me to learn but I had patience in myself and I learned. Now I can play basketball with my family and friends whenever. The way basketball inspires because throughout time it has taught me to never give no matter and that eventually I'll get better.” A sport can inspire because it can teach you to never give up no matter what and that eventually if you keep trying you’ll get better.
Being in a sport can be very fun but difficult. It can be fun because you can play with your family and friends. It can also difficult because you first have to learn to be able to play it but then there will always be someone better than you. Playing a sport can be competitive and tiring to play but as long as you keep trying with a positive attitude then you’ll get better.
