Basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard at each end.
Back in 9th grade, I was the best at basketball. I had so many girls after me. But in 10th grade, I took what I thought would be a break. I didn’t play basketball after that. I was still known for being the best until 11th grade when some other guy stole my thunder. However, I really couldn’t care less. I love this sport and sometimes play it with my friends.
By the time 12th grade came around, no one saw me as the best anymore. I genuinely felt like I could have gone on to be in the NBA. I’m serious. I think I held a record in the school for the most dunks, which was 12. I participated in many basketball-themed events and was called “Michael Jordan,” “Quick Hoop,” and most of all, “The Best Basketball Player Ever.” While I feel that Michael Jordan takes that last nickname, I think I deserved the other two. I felt really cool back then.
Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players each. It is played with a spherical ball. The objective is to score the ball in the other teams goal.
Bro, I cheer for four football clubs and also my national team. I also play the sport as a girl. It is the best sport ever. People who say it is trash are missing out on the greatest sport to ever exist. I don’t know why people hate it for no reason. It is the best!
Soccer is the best sport ever. For all of you who say it’s easy, boring, or any of that nonsense, it’s likely because you’ve never played competitively. We engage in a lot of fitness training and have practice six days a week. It’s not like hockey, where you get a substitution every 45 seconds. Our games last 90 minutes, and sometimes you don’t get a single substitute.
You have to run hard for the full 90 minutes. Want to call us weak now? And it is a contact sport. For those of you who claim it’s not, you simply don’t know anything about the game. I’m on the best team in my state, and it’s incredibly fun. The sport requires a ton of endurance, strength, individual skills, and teamwork. It’s not a game where you score every 30 seconds. You actually have to work hard to score.
American football is a sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular field with goalposts at each end.
In Grade 9, I was selected for Team Canada as one of the best defensive tackles in the game. At 6’4″ and 320 lbs, I was a force to be reckoned with. However, concussions came into play, causing me to take Grade 10 off. I bounced back in Grade 11, making the league all-star team as the only Grade 11 player. Later, I tried out for Team Ontario in an attempt to re-enter the elite level. My lack of commitment, coupled with injuries, became my downfall. I met people who were slightly better than me, failed to make the team, and eventually switched to basketball. Now in college and weighing 230 lbs at 6’4″, I hope to make the team next year after being cut this year. How the mighty have fallen – football is not an easy sport. You must stay committed to remain the best.
Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players each who take turns batting and fielding.
I chose baseball because it’s my favorite, but I won’t argue with anyone’s opinion since this list is a matter of personal preference. I will say that soccer’s worldwide popularity is a weak argument for the sport. It gained popularity because it’s cheap to play, requiring only something to use as a ball, and is extremely easy to learn at the most fundamental level. Don’t get me wrong. Playing soccer at a high level demands an enormous amount of skill and knowledge. However, the basis of the game couldn’t be simpler: kick the ball through the goal. Any group of poor kids who have even five minutes’ exposure to the game can immediately find something to use as a ball and start a rudimentary game. Basketball is similar but requires a ball that bounces and a way to hang a goal.
Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent’s net to score points.
Full contact like football, fast pace like basketball, hand-eye coordination requirement like baseball, and the main goal is to put something past the goalie into the back of the net. What’s not to love about a sport that is like a combo of four other sports? Not to mention, it’s all done on ice! It’s an incredible sport to play and watch. There’s so much history in the books about this sport as well. And who doesn’t love the suspense of what Don Cherry will be wearing on Hockey Night in Canada? As a proud Canadian, I love this sport and I cannot think of a way that any other sport is better or more entertaining than ice hockey. Remember, this is MY OPINION, so for all you soccer fans out there, please don’t flip out on me. Peace out.
Tennis is a racket sport that can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each.
I love tennis! I’ve been playing since I was 5, and now I’m 13. Tennis is a great sport to play. It requires arm strength, good footwork, and mental skills, such as deciding where to hit the ball. Many people think it’s just hitting a ball, but to be good at it, you need to swing that racket like your life depends on it.
Let’s be honest, dancing – although it takes skill – isn’t a sport. I don’t see dancing competitions on ESPN. My sister is a dancer, but I haven’t seen a competition yet! While dancing is hard, it isn’t a sport in my view.
Another sport I like is swimming. I’m on the swim team, and I can say that swimming gets you in good shape. You’ll sweat, but you always have cool water surrounding you. I love swimming, tennis, football, basketball, softball, volleyball, and much more. Just not dance, cheer, and gymnastics.
Swimming is an individual or team sport and activity. Competitive swimming is one of the most popular Olympic sports, with events in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
This sport is great for exercising all muscle groups. While it is definitely not a “non-contact sport,” a session in the pool burns more calories and leaves less sweat on your body after you get out. The feeling you get after swimming hard with a purpose and touching the wall is exhilarating. This applies to all sports, but swimming helps you focus on multiple skills occurring simultaneously. It also helps you work on your work ethic and self-motivation. In conclusion, swimming is one of the only sports where you are a team and cheer for others but compete individually, with occasional group bonding races.
Bowling is possibly one of the top 10, or even top 5, most participated sports in the world. Young and old, male or female, can compete on equal footing, and it takes both mental and physical skill.
My favorite sport to play requires lots of mental focus. The best part is that you don’t have to mess up your body like those people with too much testosterone do.
I’m a bowler. It’s a lot of fun and great even for people who aren’t athletic, like me. You do need some physical skill. It also involves math.
Absolutely amazing sport. It requires mental focus, willingness to react to changing lane conditions, and significant dexterity.
Boxing is a martial art and combat sport in which two people wearing protective gloves throw punches at each other for a predetermined set of time in a boxing ring..
Boxing is an accessible sport that allows less privileged kids to escape the struggles of living in a difficult environment. Equipment is affordable and minimal, making it the perfect sport for most people. Maturity, dedication, and drive are improved in the process. Boxing is also extremely helpful in combating depression, anxiety, and other issues since it’s such a physically draining sport. Boxing is also fun.
I did lots of sports until I started boxing. It’s hands down the most epic thrill you get when you achieve your goal of becoming the person you want to be. As boring as the training is, it still comes in handy for fighting in matches. It is also helpful for your fitness.
That’s the sport that demands the most from the athletes who compete in it. It’s harder than football, harder than baseball, harder than basketball, harder than hockey or soccer or cycling or skiing or fishing, or any other of the 60 sports we rated.
Dodgeball is awesome. I don’t know why it’s so underrated, but I just love hitting people with balls, especially in the head.
What could be better than chucking balls at people’s heads? I mean, seriously, just think about it.
Dodgeball is one of the funniest sports to play, yet it’s still underrated. It should have a league like the NDL or MLB.
Anyone can play dodgeball. That’s why you play dodgeball a lot in primary school.
Volleyball is a team sport in which two teams of six players are separated by a net. Each team tries to score points by grounding a ball on the other team’s court under organized rules.
I play volleyball on the 13s Fatchmo team. Trust me, volleyball is not easy, but it’s a lot of fun and overall my favorite sport. Volleyball should definitely be in the top ten! We can bump, hit, serve, and dig. Volleyball includes a lot of hustling, but it’s worth it. No running in volleyball? When was the last time you ran ten feet in one second, threw yourself on the ground, and got back in position all within three seconds? I’ll quit competing when my heart stops beating. A lot of us miss 100% of the shots we don’t take.
