In the News: SLAMMMIN' SAMMY! Shea on Fire!
I want to be recruited to play sports in college because sports have been such a large part of my life for as long as I can remember. I grew up being active and love the competition and challenges that sports offer. I also appreciate the “family” that sports creates. I’ve made some amazing friends playing sports and it's helped build my confidence. I really can’t imagine my life without sports, and I don’t want my graduation from high school to be the end of that journey.
I try to be a leader and show good sportsmanship on and off the field. On the field hockey turf, I’m comfortable talking to my teammates and giving instruction on positioning and plays. I also always try my hardest, which I hope shows leadership by example. I also help the JV field hockey coaches with skill development for their team. At the beginning of each track season I help my coach organize what events the new athletes will participate in. I generally help out with hurdles, long jump and sprints by demonstrating form, introducing starting blocks and supporting them during the trials. Throughout the season I continue to mentor them however I can.
Off the field, I’m also a leader. For the past two years I have been nominated by my teachers and coaches to be part of Warrior Way, a town program that sends select high school athletes to elementary schools to talk to the kids about sportsmanship. I also volunteer in several organizations for younger kids, including coaching elementary and middle school field hockey teams, helping out with the middle school track program, volunteering as a counselor at a local Bible camp, and volunteering at the Special Games, a yearly Special-Olympics-like event.
I pursue a healthy athletic performance by eating right before I compete. I put 100% into every workout to make myself the best athlete I can be.
For the past three years, I've volunteered with the youth in our community by assistant coaching several younger girls field hockey teams (elementary and middle school) and helping out with the middle school track and field program. I've also refereed field hockey games for our local youth center's yearly tournament. This year I spent over 60 hours on the field hockey turf working with the girls.
This summer will be the fourth year that I've volunteered at a local Vacation Bible School. At this week-long camp, I'm a counselor and spend the week guiding the participants through activities.
I enjoy volunteering with young kids in my community. I love their energy and how my love for an activity can transfer to them. I'd like to be an elementary school teacher and every hour I spend coaching or just being with younger kids makes me more certain of this career choice. I remember looking up to my assistant soccer coach, who was a high school varsity player, when I was young. I think it's important to be that role model.
