Over the years I have participated in many different physical activities such as; figure skating, soccer, gymnastics, ballet, crossfit, hockey, and in public school, every school sport (soccer, basketball, volleyball, and 3-pitch). It was very beneficial participating in so many sports, I got to try sports I had never tried before and see what sports were for me and what sports I didn't like as much. Every summer my family and I go camping; we have a trailer that we have taken across the country, from here, Ontario all the way to Prince Edward Island. I benefited by being able to explore different parts of Canada and spend time with my family. I also babysit regularly, everyday after school for one family and occasionally weekends, week nights, and P.A. days for many other families. Babysitting is very beneficial, I get to make money and experience taking care of a range of different aged kids, from 7 months old to 7 years old.
The beep test. I experienced an increase in my score. At the beginning of the semester, I ran 8.2. By the end of the semester, I ran 9.4. I think my score increased because I worked hard during class so my cardio improved and I was able to last longer.
I enjoyed playing and learning field hockey, but there were some challenges. The difficulties of learning any new sport are usually similar. Learning new skills and how to do them properly, the rules, the "language" of the sport (what the names are of the shots and passes). The most difficult part of learning this new sport was having to learn so much so fast.
