Top Ten Underrated Sports In the United StatesRpemk
The Top Ten
It's so hard to swim good and no one believes that.
Its always hyped on the olympics so not really underrated
People think it’s easy but it really isn’t. Trust me, I was one of them and then I tried itV 2 Comments
Nothing like America's pastime - Jonerman
Hard to hit the ball
Its fun most people just haven't had the chance to try it
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
I love the sport but it is kind of overrated
Soccer is GAY
Delete all you want. The game is still B O R I N G.
This is one of those sports that's more fun to play than to watch.
I personally am a amateur youth bowler and the community is great! I would definitely recommend it if you have money to play the sport! PS start saving money if you want a bowling ball that works for you and seek out good coaches and pro shop owners in you're looking to do this profesionally! A good group a friends is good too for team events in tournaments!
I wanna bowling but mommy wont let me and I'm so sad I'm makingher a tape rn! - hannah bakerr
Specifically cross country, has many factors in order to succeed. Unlike all other sports, nobody is there to cheer you on while trying to finish the grueling 3.1 miles in the heat. Nobody else can relate to the sore muscles, the feeling of not being able to finish, or knowing that we can train up to 8 miles in a single day. And yet we are still treated like trash. Many people may not understand, but cross country IS a sport as well. Just because we do not have a ball to score with or a bat to hit with does NOT make this sport easy. So if anybody here still has a problem with this sport, Try finishing a sub 15 minute 5k, because it is much harder than you think to endure a sub 5 minute mile pace, as it also is completing up to 8 miles in a single day for training, not to mention the high risk of cardiovascular arrest, the number one reason of deaths among athletes aged 12 - 22. So I ask everybody to just think twice about what it really takes to truly deal with a sport like this.
I know for a fact nobody taking any other sport besides long distance running can complete daily 8 - 10 mile workouts. (Without stopping lol)
Training is MUCH harder than you think.
Why tf is this only 11? (As of July 2018)
Lacrosse is a contact team sport played on a field, in which two teams use a small rubber ball and long handled sticks to score in the opponent's goal.
Softball is the best sport. It is sooo overlooked! And why is soccer and basketball on the list? Everyone plays soccer these days. In conclusion softball is the most underrated sport.
EXCUSE ME? WHY IS THIS NOT NUMBER ONE
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!
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
I play it as a sport. It's really hard because you have to make unnatural body movements. It's very underrated.. :(
Water polo is such a fun sport! It’s like soccer and swimming together what’s not to like!
Figure Skating isn’t even considered a sport to some people which breaks my heart because it’s a very complicated sport requiring not only physical but also mental strength and a lot of dedication, perseverance, and drive.
It is hard and no one ever agrees with you when you tell them. We practice 24/7 and no one appreciates us
We definitely deserve to b up there we work non stop and unlike all other sports we don’t hit or carry a ball, or run up and down a court or feild we have to lift actual people without killing them or ourselves, we have to do gravity defying flips and on top of all that we have to preform and make it look easy. in cheer you don’t get another chance, penalties, or subs, u have one chance to b perfect. if you break your arm in the middle of a rutein you have to preform like nothing’s wrong you don’t get a sub.
I'm sure if you broke your arm in the middle of a routine you wouldn't get up a go on like nothing's wrong. That's a bit of an exaggeration if you ask me. - SassyEquine
This sport requires people to be tip-top athletic as it is fast-paced and extremely fun.
My idiots of friends tell me every day "Horseback Riding is easy, you just sit there and let the horse do all the work, it is not a sport."
People think just because of the saddle you just sit there the whole time. I decided to teach classmates a lesson by making them come to the barn and post for a whole hour with some little no stirrup two points thrown in there as well. They never said anything offensive about horseback riding ever again. If you are getting picked on, tell them "Have you ever been brave enough to trust an unpredictable animal? To ever have one tiny mistake to possibly lead to death? Have you ever had the courage to communicate to an animal in silence? You babies with your safety nets and timeouts. Us fearless riders have non of those luxuries."
If you are a non-equestrian please consider what I am telling and don't ever tell one of us equestrians we are not athletes. Horse Back Riding takes much time and effort, and for people to be underestimating us ...more
This sport is definitely the most underrated. I don't care what y'all think, almost nobody at my school considers it a sport and I find myself lecturing people on how it is a sport every day. - SassyEquine
Gymnastics is like the hardest sport, and people think it's easy. One practice for youth gymnastics is 4 to 5 hours for 4-5 days a week. Most people would break after one practice. No one is born with genes that help them with gymnastics, they have to earn it.
Some people say gymnastics isn't a sport, it's more of a sport than any other sport. It is very intense and one of the hardest sports (of course all sports are super hard, but gymnastics is another level). It is also the only sport I mind watching, more people should watch itl
Arena football is great! Just wish I could find it on T.V. now a days - Jonerman
Since swimming is underrated, so is finswimming though both sports are really great and hard
Combination of swimming and dancing in water whilst holding your breath and throwing people up the water
Excuse me but you are saying that the Masters means nothing to the history of sports?
Not a sport. - Rpemk
You might want to look at the description for this item... And I don't even like golf. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Although popular outside of America, I find it to be the better version of American football
