Some physical activities I have enjoyed this year and the recent years are, volleyball, swimming lessons, tae kwon do, basketball and babysitting and last years school gym class. Some activities I enjoyed last year in gym class were, volleyball, hockey, football and soccer. When i was younger I did swimming lessons and it helped me improve on my swimming in the deep end and now I can hold my breath under water longer. So some of these things have helped me become a better player or helper in sports and activities!
During the unit of fitness I learned to try to compete with myself and try harder to get my score better the next time I did each activity. I think I did really well on wall sit because both times I got an excellent, but one thing in the fitness unit I should work on is my 12 minute run. Most of my other activities I did, stayed around the same score each time but I did improve. I think they improved because the next time I did them I tried harder to beat my first score.
I really enjoyed the unit of field hockey. It was a new sport to learn, and to play but it was really fun. Some challenges in this sport are that you can't touch the ball with your feet and you can't use the back of your stick. Some challenges in all new sports are learning all the rules of the game. It's challenging to learn all the rules of the game because you could get stressed over all the rules thrown at you at once and if you mess up playing sport or game you could also get stressed.
Track and field
If I chose to participate in the Listowel lightning track and field team I would choose to do shot put. I would do shot put because I think I am better with arm strength then doing running events and shot put is my favourite field event. I think what I can improve on in this event is building up more strength when I get ready to through the ball.
To do a hut in football you have to do these curtain things. First, you line up with the quarterback which is behide you, and then you bend down and put your hands on the ball and make sure the point of the ball is on the ground. After that you look through your legs to see where the quarterback is. Then as soon as the quarterback says "hut" you toss the ball underneath your legs to the quarterback. Lastly, the quarterback throws the ball to someone that's open and ready to run.
I think volleyball is a popular team sport because a lot of people enjoy having fun in gym class and doesn't matter what the score is, it just matters that your having fun. Furthermore, a lot of people like having competition and trying there hardest to win, like if there on a school team and a volleyball team but your still having fun. So I think a lot of girls and boys enjoy volleyball just to have fun and maybe try a new sport if they didn't really know how to play. If someone was struggling and maybe needed some help maybe you could just give them some pointers how to do something and show them. Also, you could practice aside with them maybe a few times until they get it.
