Paper: How Sports Teaches Us to Be a Responsible Person

If makes it easier for the coach If he/ she has the players cooperation. If you are only out for yourself then you are hurting the team. So which leads to the responsibility of being a team player. It is a very important for the player to be a team player. It does not take much for you to be a team player, but that does not mean that just because you are not playing that you are not a team player. Playing or sitting are both very important roles and you needed to be able to accept being put on the bench. Everyone on the team has a role and if you do not like your role then you have to work hard to change your role. It is the players responsibility to change and work hard. Some other types of responsibility that sports taught me are time management, commitment and being able to balance your activities. If you struggle with any of the above sports will be hard to do. The time management is a big part because you have a time to be at practice and if you are not there then you are breaking your commitment. Being able to balance your activities is only of the hardest things to learn. Sometimes you have to give up some things because of sports. | use to have to give up family vacations because during school breaks we would have tournaments and practices to attend. Being able to balance your daily plans means being able to doing homework, spend time with family and friends, and to be able to have some time to you. There are many other things sports has taught me but these are the most important. The ability to do all of it is a mind boggling and can be overwhelming, but the rewards of it are well worth the time. You give a lot but you get back just as much. The things | learned about responsibility | would not have learned elsewhere and when | learned it | didnt even realize | was learning it. So besides having a good time | also learned valuable lessons about responsibility that will make my life easier....
