Quiz the Coach :: School Sport Choices

Hey Coach,


What is a good sport for girls… not to girly… not to boyish? Please tell me before it is too late for sports because I need a sport to play for college application… it will look good!

Dear smh.tothecom,


You’re absolutely right! Playing on a sports team will look good on a college application. Colleges know that sports help students gain confidence, teamwork, and other important skills that help you and your college friends excel at a college level.


High School Sports

Champs!Champs!

It’s good to choose a sport that shares the interests that you want to follow. Here’s a list of school sports that have specific skills that you can acquire:


  • Softball (Fun)
  • Track Team (Focus)
  • Basketball (Teamwork)
  • Volleyball (Indivdual Skills)
  • Ski Team (Adventure)
  • Tennis (Competition)
  • Swimming (Healthy Body)
  • Soccer (Communication)
  • Wrestling (Physical)

No matter what sport you choose, you will really broaden your horizons for developing more skills. For instance, playing on a basketball team will give you the confidence to be a leader in your school projects. If you travel on a ski team, you may discover that you want to explore more of the world and travel. If you become a good swimmer, you might want to try surfing or other water sports. Playing any school sport will make you more social and comfortable around other people. Have fun!
