Quiz the Coach :: Suck at Sports

Hey Coach,


Okay, so I suck at pretty much every sport, but I want to get better. How can I do it?


Athletic Hope


Dear Athletic Hope,


Young people have a huge advantage to learn new things and one of those things is sports. When you’re young you have all this extra time in your day to play with your toys and your friends. You can use that extra time to really get better at things and sports is a great choice. But you’re only young once, so let’s get to it!


So you Suck at Sports… MYTH!!!

You might think you “suck” at every sport, but you have to get this type of thinking out of your head. There is NO ONE in this world who picks up a basketball for the first time and hits 10 baskets in a row. You have to get over the embarrassment of trying something new, because like anything it takes time and practice to do something well


Natural Athletes… MYTH!!!

Steep SlopesSteep Slopes

The people that are considered natural athletes are not really good by magic… it’s because they have little fear. They are not scared to look silly. They are not scared to make a mistake. They are not scared to hurt themselves. By losing your fear of looking ridiculous, you will be much more comfortable to try difficult skills, and sports will come to you naturally with practice.


Visualization Ventures

Watching SportsWatching Sports

Visualize this… you watch a lot of skateboarding on TV, on youtube and even live at the park. When you remember all the tricks and moves that you see in your memory, you can learn how to duplicate those skills yourself. It’s called visualization and it’s one of the most effective ways to learn sports. So watching whatever sport you want to learn is essential to getting better at something.


Get into the Game

Obviously the best way to get better at a sport is to play. Play street hockey with your friends, go running in the park by yourself, take some tennis lessons, join the school volleyball team. By getting yourself into the culture of sports, you are destined to be an athlete!

Cheer leading, I think, is not a sport. I mean the girls who are cheer leaders never go are the girls teams but never miss a team where there are boys. So if it was a sport then shouldn't they cheer for all the students who are play a certain game where cheer leading is needed/allowed? Maybe in some schools it is a sport but in most, it isn't. -_-'

I don't know what is wrong with these teams. Former Colt's Head Coach, Tony Dungy, said that he wouldn't wan Sam because of the attention he was bringing. I just don't get it. I heard that his stats were amazing. A player should not be cut because of their orientation but because of their attitude or extremely poor skill. Why can't they just let him do what he loves to do, play football on a team that wants him.
