|A tennis ball!|
3. My third favorite sport is called tennis. In tennis you hit the ball to the other side of the court. It needs to go over the net to be on the other side. If it bounces two or more times on their side, you get a point. In the last school year, my sister started taking tennis lessons. At first I thought it was boring, but then I tried it and really liked it. I took lessons until the end of the school year and started playing with my family in our community about once a month.

2. My second favorite sport is called football. In most countries, football is when you kick a ball with your feet into a goal. That is called soccer for us. In football you try to pass or run the ball into the endzone. If you get it into the endzone it is a touchdown which is worth 6 points. You need to kick the ball between the two posts to get the seventh point. If you make a field goal it is worth 3 points. I played flag football last year. My parents didn't want me to play anymore because I got hit in the stomach a lot. Also, my tooth went into someone on my team's head. (But my tooth just got wigglier. It didn't fall out!)
1. My favorite sport is called basketball. In basketball the goal is to dribble up the court and score. If you are inside the three-point line it is worth two points. If you are behind it is worth three points. A free-throw is worth one point. The team with the most points wins. I started playing when I was five. I didn't get a single point all season! I didn't play again until I was seven. My next season I got six points. At least it is better then no points. In my third season, I got 8 points in my first game. I averaged 10 rebounds per game. In my most recent season, I did amazing. In one game I got 16 points and 17 rebounds. In my last game I got 16 points and about 11 rebounds. Those are called double-doubles. I got two in one season! That was an amazing season!
