Three Types Of Spectator Sports
A sports movie is a fictional film genre which makes use of sports as the main theme of the film. It’s a totally fictional production where a fictional sport, usually a sporting event, follower of popular sport, or athlete are heavily involved, and that rely upon sport to an extent for their story resolution or inspiration. In most cases, a movie sports film follows a team/player, game/season, or race – though not always. The audience is typically focused on some aspect of that chosen subject matter; this could be a rivalry between two rivals, or a battle between sports gods and villains from the sports world. In general, a sports movie makes use of popular sports and features some level of interaction between the various characters. This could be related to a match or series of matches, a tournament, awards ceremony, or any other form of sports competition.
Sports are a widely accepted element of society, that we observe, enjoy, and appreciate. We see athletes on television and in the press, we have all participated in some level of sports competition, we admire, worship, support and cheerleaders in the same sport as well. It’s fair to say that the vast majority of us have an affinity for sports, and most of us identify with at least some degree the term “sport” even when we are not actively participating in any competition. The problem lies in the behaviour of those who participate in sports, or are perceived by others to partake in sportsmanship.
Some might argue that all sports are unsportsmanship based. This would be incorrect, because there are many definitions of unsportsmanship – such as excessive celebration, malicious behaviour, physical aggression, and the like. Most of these definitions are based upon whether the activity was competitive or not. Most people would agree that physical activity, such as athletics, contact sports, frisbee, rugby, football, hockey, boxing and so on, most often are associated with competition. But this is only because physical activity is part of every sport, if not every activity. Sportsmanship only manifests itself in situations where competitors compete in events that do not require them to use physical force against each other, and where no weapons or aggressive tactics are employed.
This leads to the next section: physical fitness. To participate in sports you need adequate levels of fitness, both aerobic and anaerobic. This could also include swimming, jogging, running, cycling, playing sports such as golf and tennis, or participating in more sedentary pursuits. If you participate in any sport, it is important that you are fit enough to ensure your safety while doing the activity, which includes proper protection of your body against injury. Youth sports need to be considered as a special category of sporting activity, within the general umbrella of sports that children participate in.
As mentioned earlier, it is important for sports participation to be considered a sport rather than just a form of leisure. There are different types of sports: Association football includes league and cup competitions, while ice hockey is a well-known winter sport. The differentiation between a game and a non-sport is important, even within a sport as there are differences in rules, playing conditions, equipment, attitudes towards the sport itself and benefits/advantages and so on. In the context of a professional sports league, the term sport is used to describe a specific category of physical activity that the game is designed to mimic, as opposed to activities that would normally be considered leisure time. For example, football players are not allowed to perform yoga or sign up for dance classes during the off season, even though these would normally be considered forms of sports.
Finally, the third category is spectator sports. Spectator sports refer to events that the audience can take part in. Commonly, this refers to horse racing, rugby, golf and baseball, but can expand to include swimming, tennis, basketball and more. This last category is the most ambiguous, as it is very difficult to define, as it is not clear whether spectators should be able to watch any kind of physical activity. Therefore, this main article covers the three most common types of spectator sports.
