There is a middle school student who wishers they were you right now…what advice would you give him/her about high school athletics?

If you’re trying to decide whether or not to go out for a high school sport, definitely go for it because it will make your high school experience so much better. It’s a great way to make friends and be involved and stay busy during the year. It’s a commitment but it’s worth it with all the advantages of the sport. Lessons can be learned and friends can be made.
