Write a Letter to Your Sport
Write a Letter to Your Sport

Kobe Bryant recently announced his retirement in a poetic letter posted online. In it, he personifies basketball and speaks directly to it as his audience.

Your turn. You love the sport of ______. Write a letter to your sport to tell it how you deeply feel.


  • You don’t need to copy Kobe’s style, but think what you would say to your sport about your deepest dreams, biggest regrets and favorite moments.
  • It doesn’t HAVE to be a letter OR a poem. Maybe it’s a short story with your sport as the protagonist. Maybe it’s a song. Use the genre that best suits what you are trying to say.
  • Have fun with this and be creative!

Consider sharing with the For The Love Of Basketball Group and/or The Ultimate Sports Group when you publish :)
