Tendonitis, concussions, shin splints, torn ACL’s, pulled groin muscles, sprained ankles, dislocations, and torn rotator cuffs are just a some of the many injuries you can receive while participating in any type of sport. Many athletes’ injuries start small, and escalate depending on how hard and how often the person works. This leaves two of the biggest decisions for injured athletes. One, knowing when to stop before they hurt themselves more. Two, deciding when to get come back. Even after surgeries, physical therapy, and time off, these can be two of the hardest decisions an athlete can make after being injured.

The audience in this is the people who do not think that cheer is a sport. A specific gender would be mostly boys. I often find myself into specific arguments all the time whether or not cheer is a sport. A specific age group is normally between the age of 10-20. The average reader is anyone who does not think that cheer is a sport, or that it is fairly easy. For example, in this common situation here at snow the football players always complain how hard their practice is. They expect us to sit down and feel sorry for them. If we say anything about how hard ours is, they get all offended and argue that cheer is not a sport.
How many times have you driven past your local tennis courts and seen them filled with happy kids running around and smiling? Probably more than once.

Everyone has their own way of achieving victory: scoring the winning point in a sport, getting chosen for a job or acing a test in school. A writer for Sport Illustrated's, Rick Reilly, tells Ben Comen’s story, a teenager with cerebral palsy who runs for his high school’s cross-country team, in his article “Worth the Wait.” In the article, Reilly informs the audience of the previously mentioned situation that Ben is in, while also mentioning Ben’s process of overcoming all odds and managing to finish the races with the entire crowd cheering him on. Reilly establishes a triumphant tone with the aid of pathos and arduous-like diction to make light of people with cerebral palsy and to show how they can accomplish goals in life like everyone else
Some runners fear the possibility of injuries such as shin splints, twisted ankle, etc. But imagine running a 5k with these injuries- along with cerebral palsy. Renowned sports writer Rick Reilly captures the moment Hanna High junior Ben Comen, who’s body is wrecked by cerebral palsy, crosses the finish line of his cross country race in the piece ”Worth the Wait”, written in 2003. Flagged by his teammates opponents, and even the girl’s team Ben tumbles in a last ditch effort across the line to the screams of the crowd. It’s near impossible to imagine what it’s like to not control your body for such a long distance, enduring the adversity along the way, but Reilly pushes the reader to run alongside Ben throughout the story. He paints an image
Before visiting the Hospital for Special Care Adaptive Sports Program in New Britain, I did not realize all the hard work that goes into working in the adaptive sports program. At first I thought the adaptive sports program was for people who had difficulties playing sport and nothing more. However, after visiting the site, I was completely wrong. The tour guide informed us that the facility purpose is to modify equipment in order for people with certain physical limitation to enjoy the sport comfortably. He informed us that the players do not participate because they have to, but because they love the sport in and of itself. From hearing everything the tour guide was telling the class, I feel the inner pride in him. I realized that he truly loves his job because of the fulfilment he helps the clients achieve, for example gaining friends they can call family and building their confidence.
Abstract: The Special Olympics not only give special athletes athletic skills, they offer more opportunity, encouragement, and dexterity to survive in society than the public school system alone. To understand the differences and similarities between handicapped athletes and their non-handicap peers is the first step in creating a program that best meets the child's needs. There were no community programs that catered to the mentally and physically challenged, so Eunice Kennedy-Shriver created "special games" in her back yard for her handicapped child. Shriver established the Special Olympics in 1968. Today there are more than one million special athletes competing in 140 countries. There are some problems with relying on the
“Challenges are what makes life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.” Some people have to overcome challenges to have a meaning in life and not just give up. This is exemplified in, “The Contender,” by Derek Burnett, “Life in the Red,” by Benedict Carey, and “ Paralympic Star makes history on NBA stage,” by E Lancaster. After reading and annotating the articles about a determined Kyle Maynard, motivational Blake Leeper, and a resourceful Lakeisha Tuggle one could make the choice be successful in life and give up. But to do these things, you have to have a good attitude and “cut out” things that aren't a necessity.
One of America’s favorite pastime is football, and millions of Americans spend many hours a week watching games on TV and in stadiums. Many people look up to American Football players as heroes for good reason. Football is a very exciting game with amazing moments with many happy and sad moments. I would allow my son to play football because it teaches teamwork, it provides college and career opportunities, and it builds self-confidence.
It is hard to think that the season is actually over. I think the field hockey season is the best season because that is when I feel the happiest, not just because of the sport! This team was amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better one, we bonded right away, and I know we all had fun making memories. Just getting geared up to play is a memory, smelling the stench of sweaty shin guards and not so rinsed mouth guards. I cannot forget to mention one of my favorite memories, singing on the bus rides to our many away games. Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, Imagine Dragons, and High School Musical were just some of the songs we sang. I am one out of the three captains, Natalie Fuhrman and Elizabeth Aparitio, and I know us three had a blast bossing these
A person is capable of learning a skill if they put their time and effort towards what they feel passionate about. Has someone ever wanted to develop an ability that you practice it for hours a day? I did, I have spent around 100 hours a year trying to perfect my loving skill, volleyball. It was a hardworking skill, but enjoyable as well. It is my way of life. The most important years of my life was my volleyball experience in High School.
The human movement analysis has been applied in many situations, not sports or sports for both performance enhancement of athletes and description of specific movements, how to detect possible trigger risk factors for injury. This assumption can be extended to adapted sports that with the growing number of players, has also aroused the interest of researchers on the movement pattern in various forms, including Wheelchair Rugby (RCR). With the growth of this type in recent years, the RCR became an increasingly frequent object of study. However, most of these studies has as main research objects building chair more modern and appropriate wheels and improved performance. However, the biomechanical aspect, mainly related to the movement of propulsion
Do you have a passion, something you love to do more than anything? Imagine people trying to stop you from doing what you love because they think it’s not useful or a waste. Some people say competitive sports cost too much and they are way too dangerous for young kids to participate in. However, for many youth, competitive sports play a positive role. When kids play competitive sports, they are happier and they learn how to be healthy. Also, they learn life lessons that they will need for the future.
