What is your sport, and what level of commitment do you have to it?
Lacrosse, I love it on-season I play 3 times a week practise 2 and coach 2 days as well
How did you get started? Who introduced you to the sport?
I started playing 5 years ago, both my brothers played I did not want to play, but my dada told me he'd pay me 100 dollars to join so I did... And I fell in love with the sport
Do you have a coach/trainer who guides and helps you? What is your relationship with that person like?
Yes, I am always looking to my coach for advice, and he always has the best. I have always since a young age got along with my coaches, there like parents, they yell at you if your doing something wrong to make you a better person or player.... They can make you cry,hurt, or angry and don't feel bad, no matter how bad you mess up, your still their player and they'll do anything to help you improve and move on, I think every athlete needs to be gratefull and appreciate their coach, they do so much
Who have been your best teammates? Why?
I play on an on females team as well as an all mens team, I'd have to say the guys are a lot more competitive they really push you to your full potential girls I am more of a role model, although they are great to play with with the guys I'm always learning new things
How has your sport helped your personal growth?
With sports you learn how to deal with people, you learn respect as well as focus. You gain confidence and make good friends I believe every kid should be in sports and raised an athlete. If it wasn't for lacrosse I wouldn't be who I am today
How do you control negative thoughts after a mistake, such as hitting a ball into your own team's goal or getting off to a bad start?
I pout... Haha no when something like that happens you just got to laugh it off wether it was you or a teammate..it really is funny obviously someone had a blonde moment..oopppsie laugh it off and slap who over did it. Come out stronger your next shift
Is it necessary for someone to be the head of a team so that it can reach its full potential?
Most defiantly,all though this person needs to be a very positive person and have certain qualities or it could potentially bring the team down
Have you have suffered any serious injuries? How is morale maintained during recovery?
When I was playing in midget level, I got hit and rolled my ankle I tore some muscles and was out for about two weeks and had to go to physio. When it happened he who had hit me was calling me a baby and to suck it up, meanwhile I couldn't even walk off the floor. I was so pissed
Should technology be used to replace referees in sports events?
I can't even wrap my head around what this would be like.... I mean who are the fans going to yell at?.. Just kidding but no I do not think so
What advice do you have for those just starting out?
Don't give up, it's a skill to learn. The younger you start the better, but it's never to late try your best, never put your stick down and practise to your fullest potential every time, all the time. You will never be better then you practise. Train hard
