Swimming Sucks

7 Soccer Soccer Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a sport played between two teams of eleven players with a spherical ball. The goal is to score the ball on the other team's goal.

I like it myself, but I would consider soccer to be overrated rather than underrated in the United States. Although, if you compare it to American football, then sure, it is underrated. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The Newcomers

? Cheerleading

It is hard and no one ever agrees with you when you tell them. We practice 24/7 and no one appreciates us

The Contenders

11 Softball


12 Badminton Badminton Badminton is a racquet sport played using racquets to hit a shuttlecock across a net. Although it may be played with larger teams, the most common forms of the game are "singles" and "doubles".

Badminton is definitely underrated because people compare it to tennis and say it is easier (since replace tennis racquets and balls with something lighter) but it requires a ton of skill, agility, fast reflexes, and speed!

13 Ice Hockey Ice Hockey Ice hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points.
14 Running Running
15 Water Polo

Water polo is like basket ball soccer and swimming put together because it basically is a soccer field in a swimming pool. You have to pass and carry a volleyball and your feet cannot touch the pool floor. It looks hard but it's very hard

16 Fencing
17 Dodgeball
18 BMX Racing
19 Figure Skating
20 Finswimming

Since swimming is underrated, so is finswimming though both sports are really great and hard
