About This Quiz

For most people, sports are a big part of growing up, and many played them not just on the streets or in backyards, but in school too. Learning to play a sport in school teaches kids about teamwork, competitiveness, and challenging themselves, so it is no wonder so many kids have done it. But what kind of sport did you play? 

Some sports, like hockey, soccer or basketball, are all about teamwork on the floor, with all players doing a different job. Then you have sports like football or baseball, where the teamwork is still essential, but there are more individual things going on as well. Or maybe your scene was a sport that was totally not team oriented, like tennis or Track and Field. 

No matter what sport you played while you were in school, two things are almost certain: you learned a lot about yourself when you were competing for your school, and you had an experience that you will never forget. So what was your scene? Were you chasing a ball, shooting a ball, hitting a ball, or maybe just running as fast as you could? Whatever your answer is, we bet that we can guess it.
