Activity Profile Section 1 Since coming to Ballyclare High School I have took an interest in a lot of sports. In my first year I took part in table tennis, rugby, badminton, cricket and athletics. In second an third year I decided to concentrate on 2 or 3 sports, I chose badminton, rugby and cricket. I attended training sessions at ballyclare rugby club for a few months but was unable to be selected for Saturday matches because of school commitment. Now in year 11 I am enjoying my badminton, rugby and cricket more and feel I can still improve. I try to do some exercise everyday. Obviously some days are more vigorous than others, the main reason why I exercise because I would hate to be overweight and have health problems because I didn't do enough exercise. I enjoy exercising, I like playing team sports but I also like going to the gym on my own to train.

I wanted to do GCSE PE because I wanted to learn more about my body and my different muscles. ...read more.
