Trying Out for Basketball

23 Jan 2011 /

My boy tried out for varsity basketball at Northwood this year. He likes basketball, but he’s never played on a team before.

He plays roller hockey at a pretty high level, and if you break it down to fundamentals, basketball and hockey are pretty similar: you score goals at one end, defend the goal at the other end, and play together as a team.

He practiced a lot and worked out a lot and he made the squad.

I’m proud of him for trying out. When I was a high schooler, I could easily talk myself out of trying anything where I had a good chance of embarrassing myself in front of my peers.
