While going up, sports were a big influence in my life. There was not a day that went by that I would have to go outside and throw either the football or baseball around with my dad whenever he got home from work. In my early years all sports were to me was going across the street and gathering a group of friends and playing a pick-up game of football, basketball, or the game loved by all youths, kickball. Nevertheless, growing older the games have not changed too much, but the level of competition has and also the ability that the people played it at. Through out school I have always been involved in sports whether it being involved in an extra-curricular sport outside of school or just playing games at recess during school. There has always been a time that I am playing a sport and there will always be a time when I am playing a sport the only question is; what sport will I be playing? Over time, I have learned many sports and have implemented them throughout my life from elementary school all the way until college. Even before I had started school sports were a big part of my life, actually even when I was just a little baby I was involved in sports; having to deal with my father being a college football coach. So there really has never been a time that sports was not a part of my life. When I was old enough to be a part of the game then I was. Whenever my dad would come home from work, we would always play football or baseball. When school came around that is when I learned the new sports or more competitive games. This was when I learned how be involved in a relay race or just a race in general. During the Elementary school years was when it was involved in individual competition and strength while involving some team activity. The best thing that I was ever involved during my elementary PE days was gymnastic activities. When I walked in to class and saw the mats on the floor that brighten my day. When you could just roll around, fall on the ground, and not get hurt I think that was the high point of my life. Another activity I enjoyed in the elementary days of PE was the rope climb. Maybe I am weird because I liked it and I have no idea why, but I think it was because I got to climb to the roof of the gym and just look down over everyone. Those games were in the early elementary days but later in life when you got older and the activities became more team oriented and they involved more motor skills. During the years of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade, the games became even more competitive. Those games were dodge ball and capture the flag. The reason those games were put into the curriculum was to involve the class as a whole and to allow the participants to work together as a team. The reason that those games were not involved earlier in the education process was the fact that there was a high risk of injury. Those games would be perfect for a young child because during the ages of kindergarten, 1st and 2nd the children need to have a better understanding of teamwork and sharing. That fact was that those games were very violent and involved many injuries. Therefore, the school board did not want to have to deal with disgruntled parents so they made it a part of the upper elementary physical education. During those upper elementary days, the education also allowed the education of basic sporting activities. Those few sports were football, soccer and other basic sports that all kids should so what understand how to play. For me those three years of upper elementary days were the best because I was always the more athletic of my class and was the better participant, plus I already knew how to play those game from my father or from hanging out with my friends and their older brothers. Hose were the exact games that we used to play in the park across the street from my house before I started going to school. When moving from elementary school to mid school was a little bit of a change for me. One I had moved half way across the country, and two at my new school I had the worst PE teacher every. When in your middle school days the PE curriculum should involve some of the same activities that the upper elementary classes did, but in my case, that was the complete opposite. Every once in a while we did get to play those fun games that you used to in elementary school but most of the classes involved run and a lot of it. The class had to run the mile every week and that was the worst part of the class. There those days that we got to run relays, and for the first few weeks that was fun, but when you do that all the time then it got very old real quick. If we were not running then we were doing something very stupid like dancing or something on those lines. I think that I was deprived as a mid-school PE participant. I did not get to play the fun games that many other students got to and I think that I had the worst teach ever. I believe that the best day of my mid-school career was when I finished my last mile at an amazing time of 16 minutes and the teacher could not do anything about that because she had to pass me. Even if she did not, it was not as if they were going to hold me back another year for not passing PE. Then high school came around, though only having one year it was one of the best years since those elementary days of PE. The classes were a little different but we got to play all those fun games that I did when I was little. There were also other games that we got to play that altered the rules of normal sports. For example, the soccer games that we played had three balls, or for basketball, you could only dribble three times before you had to pass it. Another game that we were able to play that had the basis of basketball was were we had to use all six hoops in our gym. There were six different teams with three balls, you kept your own score, and the one with the most points wins. The difference in my high school PE experience was that we played almost every sport that you could think of, including horseshoes and ping-pong. This was a good experience for me because it taught me some sports that I did not know how to play. We even had to have a dance section just like in mid-school, but this was a lot better because the girls looked a lot better and it help me with dancing at the school dances, because I was not the best dancer. In conclusion, the experiences that I received in PE in elementary school help me out when I was in PE during high school. I will always remember the activities that I participated in when in elementary school. I have participated in athletics for as long as I can remember and I think that I always will. The PE education has help me with that by opening my eyes to different activities then just the three or four main sports that I participated in growing up. Those sports will stick with me when I get old because some of them I may be able to participate when I am to old to be doing the more physical sports that I am doing now.
