it was not enough. At first I did not see what I did wrong. I kept asking myself what did I do that was wrong? What did I do that caused me not to make the team?
During that time of tryouts, not only was I dealing with tryouts, I was preparing for a conference track meet that same week. Now I 'm not one to make excuses, but I will admit it was a tad big challenging dealing with tryouts, track, and school during that week. At first I wasn 't going to tryout, I figured that I might as well wait until I get more comfortable with the school. After undergoing much consideration and thought, with the help of my fellow classmates, I decided that, as my mother…
6th grade. An awkward time for many, even the outgoing. It’s a strange transition going from the safe, closed environment of elementary school, to the imposingly open one of middle school. It was even stranger for me, as I was homeschooled until the 4th grade. My two years at elementary school were spent at two different schools, so I had still yet to fully adjust to school and be comfortable. I was pretty socially awkward, too, but that’s another story.
Right before school started, I noticed…
What defines us is how we rise after falling.
The month was April, just a month after tryouts. The coach informed everyone that if you made the team, he would contact you almost immediately. I still haven’t gotten a call. As a drop of sweat and anticipation crashes down my face it happened. Ring…Ring…Ring
I answered with curiosity, “Hello?” It was my coach with the news.
“I’m sorry son, you didn’t make the team. It was such a close call. You were just on the short end of the stick…Hello?”-I was…
We worked on ball handling, layups, free throws, shooting, defense, and conditioning. I was showing a great effort. I was a lot more confident than I was last time. The coach was using me to help show the rest of the player 's the drills. When was doing suicides I was really tired, but I knew that I had to show the coach that I did not get tired quickly. Tryouts ended. The coach called a bunch of the boys that tried out. I was kind of nervous because I was thinking that maybe the boys he called…
One sunny day I woke up and thought it is cheer tryout day. Today would be the most exciting and scary day of my life. I slowly got out of bed and got ready for school.
When I got to school Kamry and Autumn was already there, they were really nervous also. We sat and talked about how we are really scared to try out that day and how we knew the dances and stuff. Then Allie got to school. We all talked about how nervous we were and how we were telling each other that they were going to…

A virtual tryout creates a simulated environment of the workplace; it is an online assessment tool that many employers are using (Veritude; 2007). While this assessment system is becoming more popular among businesses, there are both advantages and disadvantages.
Advantages of a virtual tryout might include a lower turnover rate because prospective employees can engage in what will be their actual work requirement. A…
Imagine walking in the shoes in the shoes of a disabled or special needs child. You are very shy and you do not have many friends, but you really want to join the basketball, football, or cheerleading team. Then, tryouts come and you are too nervous to try out because tryouts themselves are overwhelming and stressful. What do you do? Do you not tryout? Your dreams will be ruined and your sports career could end forever. Some might say that special needs students should participate in regular…

Lights up to reveal...describe the scene on the stage.
(Stage directions. These should be rare. Use them for necessary action, not to describe how someone speaks--write better dialogue for that.)
Approaches OB and says” hey man are you ready for the…
select basketball team, Ballard select. I didn’t have to try out, the coach just saw me play and asked me to join the team. After a few months of playing with Ballard, I became very committed and grew very close to my teammates. Finally spring came, and so did try outs. My coach Taylor, and the founder of Ballard Select, Sara, had told us only eight of the twelve girls on the team were going to make the team this spring. Everyone on the team had to try out again, but I wasn’t worried, I was sure…
It all started when basketball tryouts started. This was my 7th grade year and I was nervous. I was nervous because I didn’t know if I was gonna make the basketball team.
