I believe that once in everyone’s lifetime they should join at least one sports team. Now people might disagree but I can really care less about their opinion. When you are part of a team, it is like being part of a second family. Playing will bring you closer with your friends, and make it easier to make new friends. It is a great way to get some exercise and become more social. Everybody should be part of a team, its great for getting out of the house and being active, and for social interaction.
The average freshman gains 15 lbs the first year in college. Sports are great ways to get exercise, and meet new people and also the chance of winning something. Going to a new school not knowing people is hard and can add stress and what not. When you’re on a sports team you can go to anyone about your problems, which in the long run will cut out stress in you life.
When I first joined my Twinsburg AC Soccer team at about 7 years old I loved the idea of easily meeting new people who stood by my side during the toughest times, and now I graduated with those guys and were even closer now then ever. I have met so many people and made so many friends from club soccer when I was younger growing up, and also now when I go back home and teach kids during the summer. Nothing gives me a better feeling when I can relate to little kids at something with such an age difference between them and myself. I have traveled all over the world because of soccer and different soccer programs. I have gone to New York, England, Spain, and Mexico. So not only was it fun but it was interesting for me because I was used to the same ol same ol stuff in Twinsburg, Oh, which is nothing like London, or Madrid.
One major reason why I joined a sports team was because I could relate to any professional athlete. Yeah I know that it was a completely different spectrum on the level of difficulty but we struggled from the same problems. Not being fit enough to play in the next match and trying to nurse injuries so you could play again in your career. When I got to meet Frankie Hejduk from the Columbus Crew and USA national team, he gave me the inspiration to excel in soccer and maybe I could be in the position that he is in now. That inspired me and if that happened to me then it can happen to anyone. All of my past experiences are owed to me joining a sports team with a group of random guys, who in the end all turned out to be my best friends. So as I stated before I believe that everyone should join a sports team when younger, not matter the sport.
