I would like to be recruited to play sports in college because I’ve heard so many stories, from older friends of mine, that sports in college are so much fun! I really love playing sports and have been playing sports since fourth grade. Volleyball has to be my favorite sport even though I only started in seventh grade. All I really know is sports and a scholarship for sports in college will certainly be welcome.
Most of the time, I am a very level-headed player. My club coach looks to me to be a leader and keep everyone together and excited. How I do that is either a hard kill on the court or cracking jokes on the sideline. I'm involved in many other things off the court, as well. One thing I'm also a leader in is marching band. I am a section leader and the people who are in my section look to me for guidance with their questions and worries. I keep them doing the right things and teach them the things they do not know. I see my leadership as a form of helping others. I don't lead to be the head of the pack, I lead to be a helping hand for those who need it.
I may have interpreted this wrong but here's what I think the answer is to that: I put school first. I stress over homework and school a lot, so when there's a time for me to get all my work done before or after a practice, I'll do it so I don't fall behind or have my mind elsewhere during a game. If I stay on top of my homework, as well, it means I'll have more time to do the things I want or catch up on missing sleep. The student in "student-athlete" comes first and I think that that's the key to having a "healthy athletic performance".
The sports programs at my school often have camps for the younger kids to help them strengthen their skills in the respective sport. I volunteer to help in these camps because I love my school and I want to see it grow stronger every year to come. I want to know that when I leave, the school will be stronger (athletically) because of the skills that we taught in those camps. It also helps me get to know the younger generations and often gives me good memories to look back on when I'm older.
