A sports movie is a movie genre which makes use of sports as the main theme of the movie. It’s a fictional production where a sports event, sports player, stadium, or fan of sport are heavily involved, and that depend greatly on sport for their story resolution or motivation. Most of these movies are directed by one person, with the help of a small crew, to get the movie made. Movie stars may also be involved in some of these projects. Movie genres which heavily involve sports include:
Extreme Sport: This type of sports story is normally about a high-profile competition, usually played between two teams, with each team vying for the title. When one team wins, that team becomes the “expert” in a new sport. This expert is awarded the championship trophy, often with an enormous cash prize. Extreme sports stories can also have a legal context, with legal problems arising from extreme competition. Examples of this include, breast-stroke swimming, bicycle racing, skydiving, and surfing.
Physical Fitness/Athletic: This kind of sports story focuses on athletes, particularly sports which require a lot of physical strength and/or endurance, like wrestling or weightlifting. Athletes need to have excellent physical dexterity, athletic ability, and the courage to perform under great physical duress. This can also have legal implications, if an athlete is participating in professional sports which involves fixing a competition, for example.
Chess: Chess is often considered one of the more difficult games to master, even by those who claim to be experts in the field. However, it has several fans who enjoy playing and strategizing for its strategic elements. In the context of chess, a game of strategy can involve any of the following sports: American football, basketball, baseball, hockey, racquetball, sailing, track and field, softball, motor racing, tennis, swimming, golf, bicycling, horseback riding, rugby, figure skating, hockey, auto racing, cricket, racing, boxing, snooker, billiards, and mixed martial arts.
Physical Activity: The main article focuses on sport activity as a positive, self-motivating, self-explanatory form of physical activity. Many people enjoy participating in sports because they help build their self-esteem and sense of achievement. Participating in sports requires a certain level of commitment, skill, athleticism, mental skills, and social skill, but is an enjoyable, positive way to exercise and can have many positive recreational and health benefits.

The main thing to remember when considering your participation in different sports is to know which ones you enjoy most. If you enjoy a specific sport so much, then it is worthwhile to find a club or team in your area that will challenge you in that particular sport. If you are not sure what type of activities you will enjoy, try out various sports until you find a sport that you feel confident in and have fun participating in. It never hurts to try out the sport you have chosen and see how you do. Try out for size before you decide that you can participate in the sport with style and grace.
