are sports try-outs good for teenage sports?
Debate Rounds (3)
tryouts" encourage kids to work hard at something they really want to do. according to "BlueTimes" Students learn valuable life lessons from trying out for a team weather they make the team or not. they have to work for what they want to achieve or prove. they will have a better chance of doing good at the next thing they attempt because they have the experience of what it"s like to try out for a team and have the lessons in mind of what they learned from a experience
Well, first off thanks for posting an interesting topic.
Tryouts for competitive sports are completely over-rated in my opinion. The only things tryouts instill is the best make the cut, the rest do not. Also, keep in mind that *some* schools have a "favorable" system, meaning those playing for the longest time are the ones that usually make the team. I think having a sort of join able team and balanced play time based on performance is the best way to go. With that system, you're on the team and you get your chance to play. Of course, it may not be a whole lot, it depends on your skill level. However, it's a self-esteem boost and overall better for attitude.
You have stated "tryouts encourage kids to work harder", however, what about the kids that work harder and harder and still cannot make the team. Due to problems that could be of specific issues that can be related to deformities or simply they cannot get the most important thing right. I think it should be equal indeed.
Everyone deserves a fair chance in my point, let everyone play and balance the play time between all players and that creates unity and equality amongst the students and teenagers.
Well, you went from your debate topic off on some rant about extracurricular activties encouring development, but I suppose we can excuse that.
Like I said, they are over-rated because people are favored and a different system should be placed into effect to ensure everyone is earning a fair shot. It's not constructive criticism.
