Sportsmanship_30nd5yft

Sportsmanship. In the dictionary refers as fairness, respect for one’s opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing) becoming to one participating in a sport. Having sportsmanship character is what makes sports admirable. showing consideration and respect to your opponent, wither in losing or winning is the most beautiful thing you can see in the playground.  Every time i play sports with my friends or family, We play hard and we show competition on the playground, sometimes we get injured and be mad at each other the whole game time but once the game is over we shake hands and pretend like nothing happen, because at the end it’s just a game and the main purpose of it is to have fun and increase the circle of friendships, my father always used to tell use sports as a gate to make friends.  Sports are not a way to cause fights or harm your other opponent. people pay money and take their families and friends to have good times, and this is what define sports. sports created to connect people not to separate them.

 

Some people define good sportsmanship as the “golden rule” of sports in other words, treating the people you play with and against as you’d like to be treated yourself. You demonstrate good sportsmanship when you show respect for yourself, your teammates, and your opponents, for the coaches on both sides, and for the referees, judges, and other officials.

But sportsmanship isn’t just reserved for the people on the playground. Cheerleaders, fans, and parents also need to be aware of how they behave during competition. Sportsmanship is a style and an attitude, and it can have a positive influence on everyone around you.

which extra sport would you want your college to add?

Soccer is a popular game worldwide. For many reasons i believe soccer is the appropriate game if CSC decided to add one more sport. There are many reasons that can support my answer, the reasons are as follow.

 

1- Popularity

Soccer is the most popular sport in the world in terms of player numbers. According to the 2006 FIFA Big Count, there were 265 million soccer players in the world, 270 million when referees and match officials were included.

2-Inexpensive

Soccer players don’t need to spend large amounts of money on equipment. The two most costly items are soccer cleats and a ball, and neither need be overly expensive. A jersey, shorts and shin guards are the only other requirements. Football players must buy a large number of protective items for competitive play.

3-Easy to Learn

It doesn’t take long to learn the basics of soccer. The rules are straightforward and easily defined, with only a few regulations — such as the offside rule, leaving much room for confusion. Football is a more complex sport in terms of set plays and regulations.

4-Physical Requirements

Soccer players don’t need the physical strength of football players. Athleticism and fitness are important, but you don’t need to be physically imposing to play soccer. Some of the world’s top players, such as Lionel Messi, relypurely on skill and creativity rather than strength and stature. This makes soccer a more inclusive sport than football, for men and women.

5-Injuries

Soccer players are less prone to injuries than football players, according to the 2006 High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The one-year study found that football players had the highest injury rate, with 4.36 injuries per 1,000 athlete exposures. Male and female soccer players had a rate of 2.43 and 2.36, respectively.
