I play volleyball at my high school, it really helps your quickness, and jumping!

It's okay to paly more than one, but i think it would be a good idea to make one of them your priority, or else your schedule can get very messy.

Actually, I am quite against playing two sports but maybe this is just me.

Well I guess volleyball can't apply to me cause I'm attrocious at it, but I was in the basketball team a while ago.

Then, I realized that basketball was affecting my football, and vice versa. I had to make a crucial decision: either go for the most popular sport in the district, or go for the sport that the World plays.

I really wanted basketball to complement my football but that just did not work. I began playing like crap for both of them and was almost on the verge of embarassing myself in both sports.

Eventually, I opted for the greatest sport on Earth (i.e. FOOTBALL!) and of course I don't regret because there's more chance of an asian playing football than basketball in a competitive level.

Yet, I still play bball like every few months now and then. I play 3v3 and my ex-teammates always say that I did improve a lot, even though I don't play bball other than playing with them and my PE class. I guess it's cause my football improved a lot and my tactical understanding did as well, and for these point-scoring ball sports, the tactics are similar so yeah.

i play several sports (including basketball and football) and none of them hav affected my football badly. if u hav seen my profile u will know what i play so i wont bother listing them.

playing different sports improves ur all-round ability and u improve other aspects of different sports without realising. for example, playing badminton has improved my reflexes. swimming has improved my all-round fitness. cricket improves my speed and bravery. tennis makes me focus mor on my technique. again i cd go on but wont bother.

I play a lot of sports but football and basketball are main for me. Use to play basketball for my school's team but now I'm focusing in football and I hope I get far.
The rules of soccer are very simple, basically it is this: if it moves, kick it. If it doesn’t move, kick it until it does.
