The After School Experience

After School Sports has been such a great experience for me! This has been my second year as being the service leader over the program, and I love it! We have about 12 students from Cedar Middle School who attend every week and it's a ball of fun. My favorite part about the program is being able to get to know and help the students. Playing sports and other activities are a lot of fun and all the middle schoolers definitely enjoy them, but I also enjoy the car rides too. Every Wednesday, we pick the students up from school and then drive them home at the end of the activity. So the car rides are great, because we have a lot of down time to just talk with the students. During the rides I get to really know how the students are feeling and what they currently think about school. I have had quite a few talks with them about going to college or other things they might want to do after graduating high school. I know that these students are just in middle school right now, but I believe that it is a good idea for them to start thinking about their future and start preparing now. I think I have a group of studly middle schoolers who are going to do great things in life. I'm glad that I have been able to be apart of their journey and introduce them to real college students and athletes who can be great role models. After School Sports is the BEST!
