Being involved in a team sport is not only fun, it’s a great way to meet new friends and learn new things. When I was younger, I played basketball and soccer, skating, performed gymnastics, played piano, and danced. One of my best friends is a girl who I met while playing basketball. Most of my fondest memories come from being involved in those activities. Though I was never really the best at any of those activities, I always had fun. The first year I played basketball I was on a team of all boys. The ball was rarely passed to me, but I learned a bunch of new techniques and I learned to love basketball much more.
Sometimes, if you’re on a team sport you may feel self-conscious, but remember that everyone probably feels the same way as you. Hopefully you all will learn to appreciate the value of team sports as much as I did. Go team!
