Two Teams United for a Special Practice

Soccer and Tennis are two completely unrelated sports other than that they are part of the same school. Both sports decided to hold a joint practice in which all the athletes from both teams were able to understand each other’s points of view.

“It’s going to be a good bonding experience,” sophomore Kayla Hill Said. “It’s going to expand our little friend groups on the teams.”

With teams at the school constantly arguing over which sport is better overall or which team has a better score, these coaches thought that all that needed to come to an end.

“The coaches are coming together as a form of respect,” senior Aryanna Lamas said.

Both teams thought that the practice went great and definitely helped create new friendships between the members. When the everyone came together as people and not as competing groups, it created one whole team.

“It doesn’t matter which sport is better because at the end of the day we’re all representing Arvada and that should be something positive,” Lamas said.

Participating in activities such as this one, it creates a family among the sports programs and allows for less bickering during events. In the end, sports are all about making friends and having fun.
