    Beliefs In Athletics

    My belief comes from athletics. I feel like if i was not an athlete, I would not be who I am today. Being an athlete made me open up my eyes more. When I played pop warner football for the Taunton Tigers, I was thinking to myself that I will be playing with most of these kids during high school. That is how I quickly made friends when I entered high school. It was not just from playing football though. There was also basketball and track and field. All the opposing teams, we would all show each other respect at the end of the game, unless you really just did not like them. That is how you make friends from other cities. Knowing me, I am a very respectful, funny, and polite kid so making friends is pretty easy for me. During track, that was probably one of the easiest ways to make friends. There are so many people there for you to associate with. Going to big meets is when you meet people all over the state that you may see in your lifetime. You may never see them again. That is why I ask them for their information. Like ask for their snapchat, number, or instagram. Being included in a sports team makes me feel part of something. It makes me feel included and I can be that part that takes that team to the win or cross the finish line first. This is why my beliefs comes from athletics. I would not be who I am today if I was not an athlete. I would be a totally different person.


  2. I could not agree more! Being part of a team shows both children and teens how to bond with something they later call their family. Sports allow people to make lifelong friends and also allow you to learn important life lessons. Commitment is taught by having to show up to practice, games, and team dinners. You have committed to your team to be there for each and every one of them as they committed to you. Lastly, determination is taught when you may not get that skill the first time you try it but you continue to stay determined. After staying determined it shows that you can overcome anything with determination and effort !
