A Guide To Getting Into Sports

Do you want to get into sports? Sport is a huge part of modern-day culture, so for many people, it is something that they have always wanted to have knowledge and interest in but are unsure where to start. Getting into sports can bring many benefits to your life – it can help you to improve your physical health, give you a new hobby, give you inspiration and allow you to socialize more and feel like part of a community, amongst many other perks. So, if you are thinking about getting into sports but you are not sure how to do this, read on for all you need to know.


Start Watching
First, you should try watching a few different sports to find one, or a couple, that you like. You can usually find sports fixtures to watch on the television, and if you like this, then you should absolutely go to a live game, which can be a fantastic experience and really ignite your interest. A few good options to start with include:
– Football
– Basketball
– Baseball
– Tennis
– Soccer

Read About The Game
Most sports can easily be enjoyed without much knowledge of the game, but you can get much more from sports when you have a better understanding. Once you have found a sport or two which interest you, start reading about the history, the different teams, common tactics and key players.

Pick a Team
This information, and watching a few games, should give you a team/player to support. This is a key part of the sporting experience because it can give you an emotional attachment while also helping you to feel part of a “tribe.” Going to a game to watch your team wearing their colors with fellow supporters is a unique feeling and a great chance to meet new people.

Online Communities
Following this, you can also join online communities, which can be a great way to learn more about the sport, talk about your favorite team and build up a network of fellow supporters.

Try Playing
It might be intimidating at first, but once you have played a sport, you can develop a much greater appreciation for it. You should be able to find somewhere to play for beginners by looking online, and you might find that this becomes your new favorite hobby and will be a good form of exercise and possible socializing.

Sports betting can add to the excitement and help you to get more invested in each game. It can also be quick and easy to place bets online with companies offering a wide range of different bets and odds on all sports, such as A-League odds, if you are interested in Australian soccer.
Sports play a big role in modern society, and for those who have never gotten into sport, it can be daunting and intimidating at first. However, the information in this guide should help you find a sport or two that you enjoy and help you benefit from the positives it can bring to your life.

At the heart of design is the belief that things can be better

Who would you be if you could be anyone? What would you create if you could make anything? What if you had the tools to bring your imagination to life? Roblox citizens are answering these questions every day.

Some might mistake Roblox as purely a game platform. The truth is, our products and features form the foundation of the next digital revolution; an explosion of millions of user-created experiences connected by these pillars:

Connection: A place where identity is formed and friendships are forged and strengthened
Creation: The ability to build and share anything you can imagine
Safety: Freedom to be yourself, safely
Diversity: Diverse creators provide diverse experiences
Economy: A system to reward others and to be rewarded for making things people love
Ubiquity: A community that is available to anyone on any device, anywhere in the world.
The future of design is democratized

Design at Roblox has one mission: make it ridiculously easy for anyone, anywhere to create great things.

Design is often synonymous with taste-making. Some of the world’s greatest designers – Carol Shaw, James Dyson, Jony Ive – have not only created great products, but redefined entire industries. However, in a world where technology is an extension of us, designers must find ways to make everyone a part of the creation process.

Roblox’s aesthetic is driven by our community of over two million creators. A majority of player time is spent in games that are 100% created by our community. For our designers, the challenge is in creating a system that spurs creation itself. Instead of solving a narrowly-defined user problem, Roblox designers must approach their work from multiple perspectives: the player, the creator, the parent, the system. They must think about how to influence, rather than dictate.

We challenge ourselves to think in self-reinforcing systems. For example, a player discovers that the experience they love was created by someone just like them. This inspires that player to become the creator of the next great experience. This, in turn, inspires the next player.

Seeing yourself in Roblox is critical to our success.

Designing a safer, more inclusive future

Today’s generation of players don’t distinguish between digital and physical. Their lives are a series of interconnected online and offline experiences. We’re constantly learning from our community about how to build a place they want to be every day – a space where they can engage with a global community, and where they are safe and free to be themselves.

Designers have a critical role to play in ensuring that Roblox is a place where everyone can participate, regardless of income, gender, race, culture, sex, or age. The best way to do this is to bring the voice of the community into our decision-making process. Design cannot be dictated. It must be co-created.

Representation has never been more important, and the power of our collective action has never been greater. Aspiring creators – from Roblox players with great ideas to recent graduates considering a career in design – have the power to channel their passion into work that represents them, in turn creating a more inclusive community for everyone.

What will you create?

Design today carries significant responsibility. Designers are no longer just the taste-makers, but the enablers of connection, acceptance, and more. It’s never been a more exciting time to be a designer.

So…what will you create?
