Sports and growing up seem to go hand-in-hand in this country. At least in my area, sports are a big influence on your life and community. We grow up playing little league, or take gymnastics lessons, or club basketball. Flag football is even started as early as elementary school. Playing a sport is just a normal part of life.
There is potential for every young athlete. Mom’s & coaches fuel their athlete’s potential by making sure they have everything needed to play their best. Moms cook pregame meals, drive the carpool, make sure the team is hydrated — mom carries the team.
Just a Kid From Somewhere
No matter what you achieve in life, you start in the same place as everyone else; as a someone full of potential and big dreams. When I was young, I dreamed of being a teacher and was able to fulfill that dream. My son dreams of being a football player so I’m going to encourage and support him every step of the way whether he fulfills that dream or decides he wants to pursue other passions.
My daughter was once on the path to playing hockey. She has been taking skating lessons and still loves to push herself, but I’m not sure hockey is her path any longer. No matter what she decides, we’ll help motivate her to achieve her dreams.
At the end of the day, no matter what we end up doing, we are all “just a kid” from somewhere.
Represent Your Somewhere!
With the right motivation, anyone can realize their potential and one day be the athlete they look up to. Sports have a major impact in lots of lives, but they also impact the communities of those who play the sports. Whether it is t-ball or the pros, every league has a story waiting to be told — what’s yours?
