Opinion: Don’t stress on sports

Chandal Geerdes/News Editor

School sports and other activities are always a great way for students to get involved and expand their resumes for colleges. Not only that but they are also a great way to bond with other students and form great friendships. Students can develop positive relationship with coaches as well that allow them to have even another positive influence on their lives.

As we all know, teenagers lives get more and more hectic as we get older. Speaking for myself, I would love to do more things in school to get involved, such as sports, but time is not on my side. While working 20 plus hours a week and being involved in classes that require outside of school time, I find myself at a loss of time for sports.

There’re also plenty of us out there with hours of homework to do each night. I feel if I can’t give something my full attention, there’s no point in doing it.

If school sports were not so demanding I feel that more people would go out for them and enjoy it even more. Students should not feel pressured when it comes to sports. Sports are suppose to be fun and enjoyable; otherwise, what’s the point?

There are few expectations like those who signed on Feb. 1 to their designated college for the sport of their choice. They have worked hard to get where they are today and deserve every bit of it.

But let’s be honest; we aren’t all as lucky. Those who aren’t as lucky should enjoy sports for the fun and bonding aspects. Don’t stress about sports when they aren’t going to be a part of your life forever.
