I have played varsity soccer since I was a freshman and have been given the opportunity of being a leader for 3 years now. It is my responsibility to help my teammates become stronger as a soccer player. Aside from being a leader as a soccer player, I was chosen as captain for Color Guard for my high school band. There I showed the same leadership skills as on the soccer field: I helped my guard members become stronger at spinning, tossing, and routine. My top five strengths are Includer, Positivity, Developer, Responisbility, and Consistancy. It is my nature to help people be the best they can be in any area.
As a student athlete, I believe that playing smart is the best way to play. I have had experiences where, as a player, coaches and other players have tried to take me out or have been told to take me out. What I do to overcome this is to play smart. I don't retaliate and do the same to them. I don't believe that being overly aggressive to where you are intentionally trying to hurt the other player is the way to beat the other player. I believe that the person with the most heart and skill will be the better player.
Aside from that perspective, I see a "healthy athletic performance" as knowing when to stop and get help. If you feel something hurting, go see the trainer and see what the problem is. However, I do not feel that this should be taken for granted. I know that not every little pain or ache is an injury. I believe that every player knows his or her limit.
I love helping out my community. I am part of the Red Cross Club at my high school and we have done highway clean ups, adopt-a-highway, and we recently did Habitat for Humanity and helped a family with landscaping their yard. I get a great feeling when I help people who are in need. I feel that I am not taking for granted the opportunities that I have by helping these families.
