Peers usually have a very high impact on a way a person may behave in society. “Sports do not build character. They reveal it.” - John Wooden, UCLA Basketball Coach (Coaching tenure -- 1948-1975) Behavioral problems were shown to have a decrease in the presence of a high school sport. According to “usada.org” a growing body of research finds that in addition of playing a high school sports, behavioral problems are sought to decrease. Why is this? “Early behavioral and emotional engagement in high school can buffer against participation in problem behavior, including delinquency and substance use.” - Esther Entin, M.D. Studies have shown that if they have an emotional connection to their school, they are more likely to try to meet society’s expectations of them, and they may also develop and value a positive relationship with their teachers, teammates, and class students. These bad behaviors decrease with the presence of a high school sport, thus letting good behaviors show more. The social impact a high school sport can have on ones life is monumental, and this does nothing but encourages kids to go out and join a high school
My family was born to play basketball, both of my brothers had the size and athleticism to play professionally, and my dad towered over others standing at 6’6”. At a young age I was expected to follow in their footsteps. However, I did not have the size that the rest of my family did, and struggled to compete due to my small stature. In the seventh grade I tried out for my middle school basketball team and was promptly told I wasn’t good enough to play. I came home crying feeling that I disappointed my family. The next year, during the eighth grade try-outs, the coach said the same thing and broke my heart for the second year in a row. Dissatisfied with these results, I promised that I would make a change before entering high school.
Over the course of the past several years, the North Iowa Fire basketball program has helped me become a much better basketball player but it has also done so much more. The Fire program provided me with the opportunity to make, what are now, some of my closest friends. Throughout my years in the program, we went through our struggles, but from these struggles I learned the value of hard work and competing at every level. North Iowa Fire helped me fall in love with the game of basketball and I learned so much about myself that I never knew.
There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can’t. What you’ve got to do is turn around and say “watch me” by unknown author. This is exactly what the Willow Creek basketball team did. They looked their adversary’s right in the face after they were slapped by defeat and turned the other cheek. ☺ Instead of completely giving up when every fact and statistic went against them winning. They got right back up for the rebound life gave them and made a slam dunk of being the underdogs. Willow Creeks basketball team only has six players. But every one of there players has enough courage and grittiness that equals more than one player from the teams they have faced. If they want to vanquish their final dragon of defeat they will
College sports isn't what everyone makes it out to be. Some people relate college sports to High School sports only to the extent of: it's a level harder. Many feel that college sports isn't that big of a deal. What little people know is being a collegiate athlete is a job. The life ou hae is set out for you on the court.

Money and fairness were not distributed well between sports and other programs. “Are High School Sports Good for Kids” talked about if sports were hurting some students education and what other people were doing to benefit that. The video talked about how sports were helping the kids that had trouble making friends or just weren’t social at all. All three resources have good facts and opinions about school sports, however, I feel all schools should keep funding school sports. I think this because sports help social life, takes stress off kids, and it gets everyone involved.

This activity is high school sports. Every year, tens of thousands of dollars are put into America’s obsession of high school athletics teams. Kids need to be doing other activities besides school sports because they are costly, have a high risk of injury, and there are plenty of other activities that teach the same fundamental skills that most argue sports are important for.
