[This is a guest post by freelance writer Teresa Kent]
For the average human being sports play a very vital role. It helps them maintain a good physical and mental ability. From the moment a human being is born they tend to learn a lot. When the years pass they learn about sports through several different methods. The youth of a country is considered as the future. These youths are compatible with certain talents that are hidden until they realize it at a certain age.
In many countries schools have made sports a compulsory act to the youth. This enables them to enhance their abilities in running, jumping etc. Many schools provide extracurricular activities to their students who later find out their true potential. Sports such as soccer, cricket, rugby and athletics are some sports that many students tend to pursue in the long run as well. If you take a look at all the major athletes in several different sports they too started off in a young age. With the proper guidance and coaching they were able to enhance their god given talents and reach heights that are extraordinary.
The compulsory sports that any youth will have to undergo in any school are athletics. This is a series of events such are running; jumping, swimming; discuss throwing, potshot and Javelin. Youths are given the proper training by coaches to compete with every school. This will help find out who is the best in the game. If a youth excels in a certain sport they are given full scholarship by other colleges to play the game in a better environment. Scouts are the people who make sure they spot the perfect playing youth and provide these scholarships. Certain countries have sports which are regarded as religions such as England being famous for soccer, Sri Lanka and India famous for Cricket, and the United States famous for Basketball.
The world’s most paid sport to an athlete is Basketball. There are many youths that try really hard to get noticed by certain scouts but with the competition is seems a bit hard. Due to this reason many major sports teams have started their own youth academies which will help these youths to play at a national level. Once the coaches think they are ready it is just a matter of days until they make the first string of a team. Needless to say every sport in the world has implemented a means to enrich the youth talents. Many major athletes such as Lionel Messi, Kobe Bryant and Iron Mike Tyson all started as youth athletes and ended up being the best in their game. There is no doubt that there are many youth athletes who are well capable of different types of sports that are yet to be discovered by major teams.
