“Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice.” – Bethany Hamilton, surfer
Disorganized sporting events can be just as exciting and just as physically demanding as the more formalized events that occupy both the national and international headlines. The thrill of competition and the screaming of excited fans fills the competing athletes’ ears with sounds of admiration and encouragement.
But what do non preofessional athletes especially young girls do to occupy themselves during the off times…to unwind their minds and bodies. Well, if these young athletes are an example, they readily resort to a form of unregulated physical activity that helps them hone their athletic abilities and also relax their body and spirits from the hype of competitive activities.
As I ate my supper and gazed out my kitchen window I initially had a difficult time trying to figure out just what they were up to. You would naturally expect boys to tear up the playground with activities that would be labelled energetic horseplay. But what about the female side of the equation? Does the fairer sex also lapse into moments of unbridled energetic activity? They sure do .
The initial soccer practice was eventually replaced by a diffuse array of athletic ability that would cause many a similar- aged male athlete to blush with envy.
Bravo ladies! The sugar-and-spice image many men have of you is evidently wrong. Keep up the good work and enjoy yourselves. Some sporting activities are open to the users’ own definition and could lead to a lively and entertaining endeavor for the participants.
