Have you ever scored that goal in a hockey game that raised a crowd? Have you ever kicked that soccer ball to a teammate who gets the goal? Have you ever thrown that winning touchdown? Have you ever made the basketball shot of a lifetime? Have you ever made a play that contributed to the final championship? Have you ever been part of a team? Playing sports moves people emotionally and physically toward higher purposes, in life, well beyond the games. Being a part of a team will forever change one’s personal perspectives—experiencing the triumph of a victory or the bitter defeat of a loss along and every little emotion in between. These experiences teach us about self-esteem, discipline, respect, perseverance, leadership, teamwork, commitment, setting goals, and living to conquer dreams. NTSA provides the reality in which everyone will have the opportunity to experience these emotions and living toward their dreams.Additionally, with adult and childhood obesity at all-time record highs in the United States, physical activity must become more of a necessity in order to experience living longer, healthier, mentally stable and more productive lifestyles.
