This year is coming to an end, and the last thing anyone wants to think about right before summer is returning to school in the fall. Students should have already scheduled their classes for next year, but what about extracurricular activities? Extracurricular activities look great on college applications, and they are a great way to get involved and meet new people. Some ways to get involved are clubs and sports. Sports are great because for some teams tryouts are not required. For the sports cross country, swimming, indoor track outdoor track, and bowling are sports that students can join and they won’t have to tryout. Most clubs also don’t require tryouts. There are clubs such as Interact and Key Club, which are both clubs that students can join to get involved with volunteering. Other clubs include Recycling club, Drama club, Bass club, and Paranormal club. If there is a fall sport that you aren’t interested in, consider the winter sports and spring sports to see if they are something that you would want to do. If you like to run but you don’t like to run distance, join indoor and outdoor track and sprint or participate in a field event. If you are interested in a sport that involves tryouts, tryouts are open to all students. Junior Evan Doherty said, “I am going to make it my goal to join every club, every single club there is. How many is there, like 24? I am planning on doing key club, drama club, Corning rugby club. Is there even a chess club?” Any student can participate in any club, and there are multiple clubs at the school so there is probably something that will spark your interest. Although it is something to think about, you can always save that for another time and enjoy your summer, and try not to think too hard about school.
