That’s why, it’s my passion, and it makes a great comparison to my life. In life, people say you can be successful without any effort from yourself, an average person living peacefully, or a guy that has tried so hard, but made it so late. Just like basketball. You make hoops to be successful; you defend when you meet an opponent. You pass commonly to have someone support you or reach out a helping hand.
I will choose basketball as my main topic. Play basketball has become a part of my life. I figure out many things from this sport. It makes me more competitive, strong, healthy and confident. I can treat people relations well and care about others’ feeling.
This step determines how hard you work in order to become fundamentally at basketball Basketball is a physically demanding sport and it requires a lot of conditioning in order to get in shape to play.

Every time that I started a new recreational basketball season there were always some new kids that I had never met. Getting to know these kids was a doorway to meeting their friends and expanding my horizons socially. Along with the social benefits of participating in basketball, I found it also helped mentally. Regular participation improved my mental reaction timing. When I was playing and I saw an open lane to the basket, all those years of practice and play came in to focus so I could make the decision to drive to the hoop "quicker" than I could if I had never played.
The effects of practicing and improvement in a players performance is key to the game of basketball when a player practices for basketball they are improving because they are either getting a better basketball IQ or improving in the fundamentals like shooting and passing and dribbling a player can not get too good on these attributes so it encouraged that players always practice. Then again there is that player who never practices the fundamentals and never improves on his basketball IQ will not be able to be successful in part of basketball. When there is no practicing with a player he will not be able to discern what to do in practice or in games. The player will also have a struggle working with his teammates if he does not practice. Which leads me to my next topic on why practicing can change the way a player can learn how to play and cooperate with his teammates.
Do I defend my opponent tightly or do I give her some space? Hundreds of options run through my head with only a couple seconds to decide; this has helped me to quickly think and act on situations.

A sport is sometimes considered a distraction, as it may result in absences or incomplete homework because practice ended la... ... middle of paper ... ...cisms and defeats which continually make me work harder to the victories and praises that show hard work pays off, it has helped build up my character and taught me to never give up. The competitive vibe feeds my soul.
I love every aspect of the sport. I love the discipline needed, the IQ needed, the technique, just how everything coexist in each other. Without any of the things mentioned before basketball wouldn’t be what it is and if it were different I probably wouldn’t feel the same. I’ve been playing basketball for a long time now and I have been learning what is needed to succeed and excel at basketball. I have had many coaches that have taught me how to play the game of basketball very well.
Because I got the opportunity... ... middle of paper ... ...e you a great shooter. Although I suffered injuries in my past basketball career which earned me a basketball scholarship to play collegiate basketball, I am now more knowledgeable about my position. This knowledge has helped me reflect on myself and my experiences as a player transitioning to a coach. I believe it is important that I educate my players and teach them proper mechanics but also mental set. Acknowledge that the jump shot is more than a motion of physical ability and talent, it takes a great amount of thinking and implying the information you already know to what you learned.
Personality : Personality makes athletes a good player as it is what underlies their willingness to learn , their co-operation with other players and their constituency throughout training and the game. In basketball personality is essential as players with a personality will work as a team instead of on their own for example instead of keeping the ball to themselves , they will pass to their surrounding players. Personality will also prevent players from causing trouble with the opposition and play the game fair and square. Heredity : Heredity is important in basketball as it determines how fast they will be able to run to the goal line as well as how high they can jump to score a goal. These are both important in basket ball as it provides the athlete with a higher chance of winning a game due to their characteristics that cant be changed.
There is nothing better than the sound of a basketball makes when it swishes in the net, or the feeling of a basketball on your fingertips. Little did i know when i walked on the basketball court, for the first time i would gain a whole new perspective about me and life. The game of the sport will forever change my life for the better. To me basketball isn’t just a sport to me, but an outlet from outside trouble, the struggles, and a place where i can have fun and be stress free. Without basketball i wouldn’t be the person i am today on and off the court.
