...Why Playing Sports Keeps High School Teens Out of Trouble There are a lot of benefits that a teen may experience from playing sports. When teens participate in sports, it is a fact that their chances of being involved in trouble are minimized. Teens who participate in sports acquire a lot of life skills overtime that help them become better people. One skill that a teen may learn from playing a sport can be as simple as how to become a better team player. Also playing sports help teens build self esteem while also taking up the majority of their free time outside of school. There are also things that cause trouble for teens when it comes to playing sports. These would be that teens may sometimes resolve to doing something negative for the sake of being a part of the team, not know how to handle the fame that may come from being a star athlete, and also it could cause a teen to have depression if he or she faces a losing season in a particular sport. Although some of these aspects are negative, most of the things that are experienced from playing sports ultimately lead to sports keeping teens out of trouble. In today’s society, technology has become a very popular thing. As more and more things like the TV, movies, computers, and video games are becoming the popular things, it has led teens to being much more isolated. This leads teens to becoming bored, which then leads them to be more likely to involve themselves in dangerous behavior. It used to be that these teens would......

...Sports have been part of human entertainment for centuries. Sports in America have become popular entertainment. Sports are a big social and cultural understanding on America lifestyle as well as worldwide. America has made popular the National Football League, the National Basketball Association and many more. Although America has made such a vast impact on the influence of sports, there is one general focus that is still raises questions today. This question brings debate to the presence of racism in modern sports in America. Sports have been a useful way of entertaining people for many years. However, it is an inherent part of regions culture that has determined fame and popularity of selected sports. One of the best examples of this is sumo wrestling in Japan, although it is known worldwide, it can be affiliated with one particular culture. American culture has made a liking to sports such as basketball and Football making part of American culture. Although there are a large amount of sports played worldwide, it seems that each culture has a preference or “adopted” one particular sport that is notorious to their culture. When looking at sports in America, it seems as if football is the number one selected in “American” sports. Unfortunately with this ethnical segregation of sports, another discrimination is present. This is racial discrimination, and it still plays a roll in teams and individual sports all around the world. When America portrays an image of a NFL......

It is a useful means of entertainment and physical activity. Sports and games help in character building. They give us energy and strength. Sports and games are means of mental and physical growth. During sports we come to learn many things. We learn how to maintain mental balance in the midst of hopes and despair. They make us learn how to tackle the difficult situation. Sports develop a sense of friendliness. They develop in us team spirit. They help in developing mental and physical toughness. They shape our body and make it strong and active. They give us energy and strength. They remove tiredness and lethargy. They improve blood circulation. This improves our physical well-being. Sports and games improve our capability. They improve our efficiency. Either study or work alone makes us exhaust. We remain no longer efficient to do any work. Sports remove our mental exhaustion. Sports are integral part of education. Education without sports is incomplete. Keeping their value in life, children are taught some sorts of games in the very early stage in school. These days’ sports are a part of academic curricula. Sports are particularly important for the youth. They help in their physical and mental growth. They contribute in the formation of character. They inculcate in them good values.

...An essay on Sport The issues involving Sport has been a popular topic amongst scholars for many years. I find my self constantly drawn back to the subject of Sport. While it has been acknowledged that it has an important part to play in the development of man, there are just not enough blues songs written about Sport. It still has the power to shock those most reliant on technology, many of whom fail to comprehend the full scope of Sport. Keeping all of this in mind, in this essay I will examine the major issues. Social Factors Comparisons between Roman Society and Medieval Society give a clear picture of the importance of Sport to developments in social conduct. I will not insult the readers inteligence by explaining this obvious comparison any further. The immortal and indispensable phrase ‘honesty is the best policy’ [1] created a monster which society has been attempting to tame ever since. Much has been said about the influence of the media on Sport. Observers claim it raises the question 'why?' Some analysts have been tempted to disregard Sport. I haven’t. It is intrinsically linked to adolescent inner acclimatisation. Economic Factors Increasingly economic growth and innovation are being attributed to Sport.

...Sports today are the highlight of American life in a great majority of people. They are enjoyable whether you are playing them or watching them. This is the same all over the world. In some countries, a certain sport is the backbone or the main attraction. A majority of sports are played in the U.S. and in other countries but a great deal of them are only played in the U.S. Why is this? Is this because other countries have no interest in our sports? Is it that maybe countries are just unaware of U.S. played sports? Whatever the case may be, sports expansion would have a huge impact showing a sense of unity within countries. Though, certain cultural factors must be relinquished before integration can happen. ​​​​​​​​An introduction to the sport in other countries must be the first step in the integration process. People need an incentive to be transformed into a fan from a spectator. Seeing the sport will give people an opportunity to learn it and make a decision to determine if the sport is appealing to them (Ipatenco). I believe that before it is decided what sport to integrated into a country, research needs to be done to ensure that the sport is not offending to the country’s religion and beliefs (Hodgson). There are so many different cultures of world and we as Americans have to ensure that we are not intentionally “bashing” or demeaning a culture. Participation in the sport from other countries would be prosperous as well. In sports, hands on experience will......

...Sport (or sports) is all forms of usually competitive physical activity which,[1] through casual or organised participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing entertainment to participants, and in some cases, spectators.[2] Hundreds of sports exist, from those requiring only two participants, through to those with hundreds of simultaneous participants, either in teams or competing as individuals. Sport is generally recognised as activities which are based in physical athleticism or physical dexterity, with the largest major competitions such as the Olympic Games admitting only sports meeting this definition,[3] and other organisations such as the Council of Europe using definitions precluding activities without a physical element from classification as sports.[2] However, a number of competitive, but non-physical, activities claim recognition as mind sports. The International Olympic Committee (through ARISF) recognises both chess and bridge as bona fide sports, and SportAccord, the international sports federation association, recognises five non-physical sports,[4][5] although limits the amount of mind games which can be admitted as sports.[1] Sports are usually governed by a set of rules or customs, which serve to ensure fair competition, and allow consistent adjudication of the winner. Winning can be determined by physical events such as scoring goals or crossing a line first, or by the determination of judges who are scoring......

All her emotions are overwhelming her. This will be the last game she plays in a cyclone jersey this season. It all comes down to one play. Her only thoughts are to keep breathing, stay positive, and win. One rebound, that’s all the coach says as she leaves the huddle. Playing a sport is not just about the game itself, but a benefit in every aspect of life. Live life to the fullest, try new things, and enjoy every moment.         Health is one of the most important aspects of any sport. Staying physically fit as a teenager/ young adult is a priority to living a long healthy life. In the Harlan Community High School, a student must have a semester of physical education; however, they can bypass this by being involved in a full semester of sports. Athletes put in hours and hours of physical activity every week. Being physically fit is not only just about working out though. Eating healthy can make you that much more of a powerful athlete. Protein, fruits, and vegetables can help keep the body full of energy and power longer than any energy drink or power bar.

...groups and all the stages of the sports participation pyramid I am going to explain the barriers to participation from 3 different target groups at each stage of the sport development pyramid. My 3 target groups are Over 50s, Women and Young people. Over 50s is a target group because there is more over 50s playing sport now than ever before, this is because people are living longer and wish to keep fit and active. Young people is a target group because if people can get young kids active and give them a chance to do sport at a young age then it is more likely that they will carry on with sport and go up through the sports participation pyramid. Women is a target group because although traditionally women participate less in sport, the number of women in sport has gone up in the past few years. From 2005 to 2008 the overall women participating in sport went up from 2.57 Million to 2.81 Million (12.3% increase). Also more women are playing male dominated sport like Rugby and Football. Target group 1 – Over 50s At the foundation stage for Over 50s there is not any facility’s that will teach the basic skills for a sport. For most sports such as Crown green Bowling participants will go straight into the participation stage. In the participation stage for Over 50s a barrier would be cost of travel. If a person cannot drive then the cost of the buss maybe too much and if it is too far to walk the participant may have to stop playing that sport. Also the cost of......

... Sports have played a major part in my life. They mean so much to me because they have given me the chance to build relationships with teammates and competitors. Playing sports made me realize that win or lose, if I had worked my hardest I was happy with myself. I like to play sports because they give me time to focus on training, which relieves stress and keeps me fit. I like to play soccer and ice hockey because I learn to work with a team. Individual sports such as track and dancing have given me the confidence to perform successfully in front of people. I have benefited by playing many different sports. In soccer, I understood that the harder I worked the better I got. In ice hockey it was a very different understanding. My hockey team was the first girls team to be formed in the Winslow area, and the team started with kids who could barely skate. With positive attitudes from both the coaches and the players, we built the team up for a successful winning season. The winning wasn't only against other teams but also within ourselves because we had the positive attitudes to get where we were. School work is especially important during sports seasons. Keeping up my grades is important to me. Playing sports and having good grades make me happy because I feel that if I can succeed in both school and athletics, I can also have a successful future. My family is another key factor in my sports success since they have always supported me in every type of sports and activity.......

The earliest historical account of sports date all the way backs to BC time. A sport is defined as an activity involving physical or mental exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another. The ten most popular sports in the world are Football/ Soccer, cricket, tennis, hockey, baseball, table tennis, volleyball, rugby, and golf. In the United States motor sports, pro- wrestling, and martial arts are also popular. Sports are usually governed by rules and regulations to ensure fair competition and ensure the adjudication of a winner though fairness was not always a common practice especially in the ancient world. The history of sport can teach us about the social changes with society. In ancient times it was not uncommon for humans to die during sport events. For at least seven hundred years entire villages participated in violent combat sports such as fencing and jousting. The Romans were especially known for this with the gladiatorial games and chariot racing. These types of sports would almost always leave an opponent seriously or fatally injured. In ancient Greece most sports took place during the funeral games during the Mycenaean period. Such games have been described in Greek mythology like the Iliad......
