Playing sports is a lot of fun. Well, that statement is true most of the time. In all honesty, there are times when I get a little tired of practice, practice, practice. I have been playing every season of After School Sports since 5th grade. When we lost in basketball this year, I was pretty discouraged. Not only is basketball my favorite sport, but I knew that the next sport was volleyball. I was signed up for it, but I really did not want to play. During the first few practices I messed around and didn't take volleyball seriously. My mom said she did't want me to quit. I thought about it for a long time. Then I talked to some of my friends on the team. We realized that this might be the last time we ever get to play sports together, so we decided to make the best of it. We are going to work hard and play hard and have fun. That's what sports is all about.
