    I was in the rugby team from year 7 to year 9, but not after that because I wasn't built for Rugby. I was in the football team from year 7 to year 10, and not after that for the same reason. I may not make the cricket team this year either, but I'l probably be in it in 6th form, by then it'll be too late to put on my PS

    Will most universities count this as being part of a team, and will I be disadvantaged compared to somebody who was in the first XI/XV for these sports?

    Also, I don't think I'll be made a house captain next year (year 11) but I think that there's a strong chance that I'll be deputy house captain, simply due to the fact that the guy who'll be captain is ridiculously suited to the job. Will this be enough of a show of responsbilty/leadership?

    Thanks

    No, sports teams when you were 11 - 13/14?

    Doesn't everyone have that?

    I'd say you need something more exciting tbh.

    Are sports teams really necessary? Other examples of teamwork I can think of are D of E, if I become a school monitor (prefect) then I'll be in a team with other monitors.

    That's about it

    How can you not be built for football or rugby? The big bruisers go into kicking lumps out of each other rugby, and the people who actually have talent go into football. Simples.

    I used to be a cracking keeper till everyone else grew and I didn't. It ain't fun getting lobbed all the time.

    When I eventualy caught up in height I was too far behind. Now I just occasionally play for my sisters boyfriends 5 a side. Not the same though...

    Sadface...

    It doesn't matter if you do 600 things or 2 things.

    It's what you learn/gain skills from that counts.

    You don't need to be good at sport to be a doctor =/ And there are like a million other ways to show good team skills, not just sport.

    I haven't played on a team since I was like 13... (god that makes me feel old -_-; )
