Basketball is my favorite sport. I started to play Basketball two years ago. On my first day I was excited, but I didn’t know anything about this sport, but my coach welcame me and he explained me the rules of basketball. When I started I was very weak but eventually I become stronger and I become the leader of my team. I like watching basketball also on tv, especially the American basketball teams, because I think they are the best basketball players in the world. My favourite American player is Michael Jordan, who doesn’t play anymore and Lebron James who plays in Miami Hills My coach is called Sergio Donadoni. When he was1 young he played in a local team. He is severe but he is funny too. He gets angry when we don’t score any points because he says that it is very important. When we practice he make us do a lot of exercises: we run, we do sit-ups and etc. Three times a week I play basketball in the High School gym. We start at half past five and we finish at half past seven. The gym is near my house, sometimes4 I go on foot or by bike. My team is called Angels, and we are all fifteen years old. Where we play also a girls team practices but I think that our team is better than the girls team because girls play badly. When I grow older I want to play in this team, like my coach and become a famous basketball player because I love this sport. Next month we are going to go to Porto San Giorgio for five days, for a tournament, and we are determined to be the winners.

Me on the other hand, I had older friends that I had already made through basketball. So when I got to high school even though I was nervous I had a clique that I fit and hung out with . As I hung out more with the basketball team I started to break out of my shell. Some of the great experiences I remember were the bus rides to games. We use to make up songs or just crack jokes on each other. My clique in high school was well know we were known as the ?ballers?. We got along with all the other people at school. My basketball clique went everywhere together we even had a weekly senior ditch day to the beach. We went to all the dances in groups and had fun. By the end of my four years I gained about ten brothers that I knew I could rely on and call for anything at any time. From freshman year to the time I graduated I became a whole new person thanks to my teammates and all my experiences that I shared with them. I learned how to talk in both a one on one and group situation. Thanks to basketball I had developed the fundamental skills to communicate to friends and family. Being the point guard on the team I had to relay the message from the coach to the other teammates. So I learned how to communicate and be heard in a big group. Like when I saw something that I thought someone was doing wrong I had to speak up and let them know what they need to day. I then took those skills to my everyday real life situations. I no longer held my tongue
