In the past the word “sports” has been used to indicate any activity or sport that is used as recreation or as a form of recreation. The word “sports” has also been used in a generic sense meaning to indicate any type of exercise activity, however it is now being used much more loosely than before. Sports are defined today in a way that encompasses many different types of activities and sports that have become popular over the years.
So, what are sports for? Sports for recreation are activities such as baseball, basketball, skiing, snowboarding, rollerblading, kayaking, skiing, sailing, rock climbing, hiking, running, horseback riding, skating, swimming, tennis, and cheerleading. Sports for fun are activities like horseback riding, rollerblading, skateboarding, and swimming. Sports for competition are athletic events such as the Olympics and professional football leagues.
Some sports are better known by their particular type than by any other word, for example the word “football” comes from the English language with the “s” sound rather than the “f”. Football is a game played between two teams where the aim is to score points by kicking a ball with a football-shaped object called a football through a goal. Soccer, on the other hand, is a game played between two teams; one trying to keep a ball in their opponent’s goal and the other trying to keep it out of theirs.
Today some of the most popular sports are karate, football, ice hockey, soccer, rugby, and basketball. Professional sport events are held all over the world, with the exception of the Olympic Games, which is held in the Summer months. Professional sports like football, baseball, and basketball attract millions of fans to watch games and participate in sports competitions. Some people participate in these sports in order to have some type of social interaction while others do so as a hobby, while others even compete in amateur sports competitions.
Sports can be divided into two categories, one is recreational sports and the other is competitive sports. Competitive sports like football, baseball, and basketball require specific skills and training to recreational sports like basketball and softball involve more enjoyment than any real competition. Both categories of sports offer many different types of competitions to the participants, and in many cases some competitions may be judged by an audience.
Sports can also be divided in terms of age and skill. For example, in sports like soccer or basketball players are required to be taller and heavier than other players. They usually cannot weigh less than 90 pounds. Some skills like kicking and passing a ball requires strength which cannot be learned by most young children.
