Hi everyone, I am a junior in high school and currently am not on any school sport teams. I did play JV soccer for two years but had to quit due to personal and family reasons. However, I do play for various rec and travel soccer teams in my community, and am also going to help assistant coach a middle school soccer team. Will all of this be valued the same way as being on a school sports team? I know that sports are an important part of your application, but I am just curious as to whether it has to come from your school JV or V teams to be competitive for admission. If it helps, I am planning on either trying out for my schools tennis or softball team in the spring. Besides sports, I do think that I have a good list of other things that will help my application, such as • 3.9 GPA • Taking the SAT in December, but I am very confident I will get a good score due to scores on practice tests I’ve taken (1400+) • Being an IB diploma program student • NHS • Science Olympiad team • Marching Band - auditioning for section leader or drum major next year • Pep Band • Jazz Band • Concert Band • Youth ambassador at my church • Community Service Any advice is greatly appreciated!
