Through September to May, I dance four days a week and during the last three months we have big performances and compete in different cities. I love dancing, it has become something I am very passionate about and I honestly wouldn't know what to do with myself if I didn't dance. I took swimming lessons in the summer for about 6 years and after that, I went to beaches all the time to swim for fun. It was good to have swimming lessons because if I didn't I wouldn't know how to swim. In the summer I also play baseball. Although last summer was my first year, I enjoy it very much and I will definitely be signing up again!
Fitness: My score comparisons
My flexed arm hang and the grip strength are two of my scores that improved the most. My grip strength increased by 7 (52-59) and my flexed arm hang increased by 6 seconds (21-27 seconds). I think they improved because my arm strength has increased due to all the physical activity I have been doing outside of school like, for example, a body conditioning class I take at my dance studio.
Field Hockey: CHallenges of learning a new sport
A challenging part of learning a new sport is learning the rules. I find that when learning the rules it gets a bit confusing and a little hard to follow, but after playing a few games or rounds I start to understand the rules better. During field hockey, when wee played our first few games I wasn't really sure what was going on and I was a bit all over the place, but after a few games I got the hang of it and started worrying about whether or not I was going to hit someone in the shins instead of the ball.
TRack and field: IF I were to join the team
If I were to join the track and field team I would participate in high jump. I chose this event because I did it in elementary school and I really enjoyed it. I would work to improved by practicing whenever I had the chance and start getting tips and advice from more experienced and skilled jumpers. I may try other field events such as discus, but I am definitely not a track kind of person.
Football: step by step guide on how to hut a football
- First step is to get into the ready position. Bend your knees like you would for a squat position.
- Then, holding the football in one or two hands, place the ball in between your legs and keep holding it.
- Next, wait for the quarterback to call out "HUT." They may say something else before calling "HUT" like for example "BLUE 42, HUT."
- The last step is once "HUT" is called out, throw the football between your legs to the quarterback aiming for their chest.
VOlleyball: WHy is it so popular and how to help a struggling teammate
I think volleyball is such a popular sport is because it doesn't make you come off the court sweating a lot and it require less effort compared to sports such as soccer or basketball. You also get to play every position on the court because of the rotations. I also think that because of how small the teams are it is much more personal and you can connect to your team better.
If I had noticed one of my teammates were struggling with a certain skill, I would give them some tips and advice that I have received that may help them out as well. For example, if someone was struggling with serving, I might suggest they try an underhand serve with an open hand instead of a closed fist.
