Modified, JV, and Varsity players, start getting ready for softball tryouts on March 6th after school here at East High School. Softball is one of the most common sports played in high school. This sport is a good way to stay active and develop many skills. This also motivates you to make better lifestyle choices.
As a teenage girl, you have many things going on in your life. You worry about a whole lot of things and sometimes you can use a distraction. Softball can motivate you to make better and healthier choices. It’ll motivates you to eat healthy and try to work out more. You’ll probably want to get better at playing so that will make you want to practice even more. Softball can also help with your social relationships and team working skills. You work with all your teammates to win the game, and you also get to play with other schools so if you’re shy this might help you too. “I love playing softball because I used to get bullied a lot and playing softball made me feel better. My teammates are also a big part because I consider them my family,” said Senior Saranne Kaufman.
Sports provide a distraction, but in a good way. You can’t play if you have bad grades so it motivates you to do better in school too. There are many other sports you can choose from. If you’re interested in trying out, mark March 6th on your calendar. Hope to see you there!
