A late start to the game doesn’t have to be a bad one

There can be a great deal of hesitation surrounding trying new sports and activities for the first time in high school. Some may say it’s too late to start, arguing that students starting late can not compete with their peers who joined years ago. However, this is not always the case.

Listen to their perspectives as they help break the stigma that comes with starting an activity “late,” and encourage students to try new ventures.
