If you’re a teen sports player, whether you’re into soccer or baseball, you probably already know everything this post is about to say.
There are some things every teen sports player can agree on, no matter what team they’re on. Here are just a few of them:
Nothing Can Match the High you Feel at Game Time
Teens do all kinds of things to enjoy life, but you have all the excitement you need right there when you are playing your sport. There is nothing more exciting than scoring the winning point with just a few seconds left on the clock.
It’s Not Easy Getting School Work Done
Playing for a team is a demanding hobby. It takes up hours of time and, guess what, you won’t get less school work to do as a result. You’ll have unwritten essays and test revisions piling up while you’re jogging around in the rain. You’ll be up late trying to get schoolwork finished on time because you’ve been out scoring points for your school all evening.
Coach Will Be Tough on You
Even the nicest coaches are tough. They might have hearts of gold, but when it comes down to it, they always favor the tough love technique. You’ll get told off, reprimanded, shouted at and forced to work harder at every opportunity. If they weren’t doing that, they wouldn’t be doing their job. And you know that. What coach says goes.
Playing Sports Gives You the Edge When it Comes to Dating
Spending time working out and prioritizing fitness and health gives you an edge in the love stakes. Peers admire the sports star who knows how to take care of themselves. Plus, scoring the winning points and being the school hero doesn’t hurt.
Not That You’ll Have Any Time to Actually Date
Between matches, practice and school work, good luck finding time to date any of your admirers. You’ll be working all day every day just trying to get everything done. There’s simply no time for cinema dates or sharing sundaes.
When You Do Date, It Has to Be a Sports Fan
If you do somehow manage to find the time to date somebody, it goes without saying it has to be somebody who loves sports. Not because that’s your type, but because most of your dates will be spent at games. They’ll be watching you run around the pitch, so if they are not into sports, it probably isn’t going to work out. Plus, you’d never see each other.
