How to become...A Basketball Player
By: Sydney Chong
Some people would think or say that basketball is a boys sport. Girls can play too! My article is all about the steps and tips of how to become a basketball player. I chose this topic because I like to play basketball and I’m good at it.o prove all those people wrong that say girls can’t play basketball. I would say that I am a 7.5-10 at basketball. (10 being the greatest) Basketball is a fun sport for me to play and whenever I play my stress is relieved!
Life after Middle School
For my last two years of middle school I am going to try out for the basketball team. Play for Game time gym when basketball season is over or if I don't make the team.
Hopefully I will make the team. Then for High School I will try out for the team. When you want to play any sport you need to make sure to keep your grades up!! When your grades go down you can't play at games. Hopefully play for all four years and then get a scholarship for Davidson college. Once I hopefully get into Davidson I'll play for all four years while I attend Davidson.
A college I have thought about going to is Davidson College because my Basketball role model went there, Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry went to Davidson College, and the coaches for all sports at Davidson are wonderful. Bob McKillop has been coaching men's basketball for the past 25 years, and Bob coached Curry when he played at Davidson. And then play professional basketball for WNBA. A team that I would want to play on Atlanta Dream.
Day to Day life of a Basketball Player
Professionals in the Field
I think that my article proves that anyone can do anything that they put there mind to. That no matter what gender you are, you are great at any sport if you try your hardest. Stephen Curry is a great NBA player and has proved himself to many coaches and to Golden State that he is a great teammate for his own team and to others especially when he plays his brother. He is someone I look up to in basketball and I think many other people do to.
Davidson College has great coaches for many of their sports and does their best to teach the best. Bob McKillop has coached many NBA players including Stephen Curry. Don't ever do anything just because someone else told you you can't. Prove them wrong and show those type of people that anyone can do anything if they try there best." Play what you want to play, and do what you want to do." - Sydney Chong
