Having a team sport to play is a great way to stay active and healthy. There are a variety of sports that you can play, including basketball, hockey, track and field, bobsleigh, and cheerleading.
Track and field
Among sports, track and field is one of the most diverse and unique. A sport of throwing, running and jumping, it has a number of different events. The sport has been around since the first Olympic Games, held in Greece in 776 BC.
Track and field began to develop rapidly in the United States in the late 1800s. In 1921, women began to compete in track and field. During the late 1960s, international track and field became more popular, and the sport’s commercial appeal grew.
Generally, there are two teams of five players on the court. Each team has the ball and a goal. The team that scores the most points wins the game.
There are also certain rules that the teams must follow. One of these rules is that the team with the ball has to cross over the mid-court line within 10 seconds. This is called the shot clock. In addition, the offensive team must be closer to the basket than the three-point line.
Generally played indoors on a hockey rink, ice hockey is a fast-paced sport that involves two teams of six players each. The goal of the game is to propel the puck through the goalposts into the net, guarded by the goalie. It is a contact sport and players wear special protective equipment.
The puck is made of vulcanized rubber and is propelled by the players. Players wear protective equipment such as helmets, shoulder pads, neck protectors, and protective gloves.
Several different teams compete in bobsleigh. Each team is made up of a pilot, brakeman, and two pushers. Each team must make the fastest combination of athletes. The crew that finishes first in a race is the winner.
Bobsleigh is an exciting sport. Bobsleighers speed down a course, which is a narrow, iced-banked track. The track is about 1500 meters long. Bobsleighs are made from aluminum or steel and are designed to be aerodynamic. They are fitted with steel brakes and folding handles for pushing.
During cheerleading competitions, cheerleading teams perform dance, jump, tumbling, and stunts. These stunts are choreographed by the cheerleading team, and are performed to a precise rhythm. This sport has a lot of physical activity, which makes it dangerous. The risk of injury is the highest in cheerleading.
Aside from the physical activity, cheerleading requires a lot of teamwork and cooperation. In order to perform stunts, teammates must support each other. Aside from that, cheerleaders need to maintain good citizenship marks.
