Our son knew some kids in high school who were in sports and some who were wrestlers on the school wrestling team. They all had to practice a lot after school just like our son had band practice a lot after school, many days a week sometimes. Any student who is involved in an extracurricular activity such as a sport or who is involved in band has to commit to the time involved for practice. These students can’t become good at what they’re doing without practice, practice, and more practice. This is definitely a huge time commitment, and this commitment to stick it out helps build their character.
