I am a junior here at Oswego and I played volleyball last year for the 2010 season. I think it needs to be brought to the attention how some of us were treated during pre-season this year. Since we were given a new coach this season I went into tryout with an open mind and excited to be given a new opportunity to play volleyball. Since we were unaware that we needed to get physicals on our own, pre-season was moved to Friday. This gave me only 3 days to prove to coach that I deserve a spot on the roster.
My Favorite Mistake When I was a high school student, I played badminton a lot. There was badminton extracurricular activity in my school. Each year, students had to register for one extracurricular activity. I joined badminton until the second year. In third year, my friends asked me whether I wanted to join the red-cross extracurricular activity.
One day after I had got done practice, I was talking to my friends about our plans for that night right before I had to begin work. It was a very busy day and I wasn’t thinking about much besides what I had to do next. The swim club was packed and being a life guard it was a very hectic day at work. I was on my lunch break and I saw Grace slowly approaching me at the table. She said to me, “Kristen, I have a question…” and I replied, “Yeah Grace, what’s up?” She then proceeded to ask me if I could help her with butterfly in the pool, (this was both of our “strokes.”) I replied, without hesitation, “Of course!” As she was excitedly got undressed and got her goggles with a huge smile on her face, I realized God was present in this moment.
The addressing of the media having a role in projection of a female athlete role interjects the media may not always send the best message concerning a female athlete, which is a message of femininity concerning the athlete. The interjection of the media cast typing how female athletes are always feminine no matter the sport you play; it will always have a feminine illusion of the female athlete. Society tells us that boys are the athletic ones and girls are beautiful. However, more and more women are making a living for athletic ability, most of the time because they are a beautiful athlete. Women athletes have made huge strides since Title IX but there is still room for improvement.
Introduction: 1- By a show of hands, how many people have played volleyball before? How many people have seen your 6th ranked Lady Seminoles in action? 2- While most of you have been to a volleyball game at least once in your life, you may not have been completely sure of what rules we had to follow, the calls the referees were making, or the reason for “that girl over there” being in a different colored jersey. That’s why I’m here. 3- Of course we all know about more popular sports such as football and basketball, but with the popularity of volleyball on the rise, it helps to actually know what’s going on.
He would go into every match determined not to lose and would come out victor. He would lose the first match of his tournament because of the seed he was and because he was a rookie. He prevailed over the rest of his opponents and made it to sectionals where he would go and place third to make it to districts. He lost both matches at districts where his season would end from his body being banged up with his record having 16 wins and 6 losses for his first year. He suffered from a bursa on his kneecap which is very painful from his knee hitting the mat constantly.
I was freshman and went to few classes and some students said its almost finish school and want to do something for fun like YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE “Yolo” my close friend and i saw them conversation and made a plan to pulling the fire alarm so they did. We laughed because we know who DID it and it felt good that we have a short classes. We went to stand outside for like 20 minute and the firemen came and check school if everything is okay it took them forever and we went back to class every next class other student pulling fire alarm like 4-5 times. I asked my best friend if she experience those things? She told me she DID it when she was freshman.
The Effects of Being an Athlete In 2012, Misty May Treanor and Kerri Walsh won a gold medal in the Olympic Games in London. However, they did not get there by deciding to play pick up matches on the beach the year before. Misty, now age 36, began as a little girl, playing in her first tournament at the age of eight. Later, she went on to compete on her high school’s indoor volleyball team and track team. Every Olympian had to start somewhere, and more often than not it was in high school.
Also I would ask if there’s anything I could do as it got closer to the summer. ---Finally Summer--- At last it’s a week before summer; the Director had a meeting for all those that wanted to work for the summer day camp lunch program. I felt excited and nervous at the same time, I thought I had a pretty good chance but there was at least seven (7) other teens there. They said that one (1) person is going to get the job, but they want all of us to have experience turning in an application and have interviews, so we can have experience in the whole process. ----The Big Day---- Finally the big day was here.
I started to think about changing a host family which is offered by AFS staff but lastly I decided not to. Everything in this family was more than good for me except only that one problem. I decided not to give up on this. Until around eighth month of my stay, one day in the morning my sister woke up late because last night she went to party with her friends and came back totally drunk. As soon as she got up and went outside to get some air, I went to our room and started to make her bed.
