The Power of Sports


They can be played with a bat or a stick.
On a field or on hardwood.
Time or the place makes no difference.
The only necessity is the desire to work.
Sports is not about winning and losing.
It is about making individuals better.
Turning girls into women
And boys into men.
Developing the character on athletes
Through the desire to get better in every aspect.
The desire to become tougher mentally,
And stronger physically.
To win or avoid losing is not the goal.
But instead,
The goal is to make individuals better
And give athletes the tools needed to succeed.
Not only on the playing field,
But in the game of life as well.
This, is the power of sports.
