Would you want to play for the senior team this year?
I don't know if I'm ready?
It's up to you, think about it as long as you need; I think you can handle this and I think you'll have fun.
In grade 9, I decided to take a break from playing basketball after many years of playing. I missed playing and decided to tryout in grade 10 really hoping to make the junior varsity team.
During one of the tryouts the coach of the senior varsity team, along with Ms. Green, approached me and asked if I would like to play for the senior team as they did not have enough players.
I can do this, maybe it'll help me in the long run. Its a chance for me to grow as a player and a person.
That night and for the next few nights I had to think about it and discuss with my mom. One concern of mine was that I was not ready for the high level of basketball, especially after taking a year off.
Another concern was that I wouldn't get to play with my friends who are my age.
After a few days of contemplating, I decided to take the leap and play for the senior team.
My risk paid off and I had a really fun season. I made new friends I can learn from, acquired new skills and learned how to be patient.
