What makes a team

By: Taylor Millis [Co-Executive Yearbook Editor] @tinytmills

According to Webster’s dictionary the definition of a team is “a group of people who compete in a sport, game, etc., against another group.” But a team is more than just a group of people. A team does more than just compete together. A team is infinitely more than the dictionary definition seem to say. The meaning of a team seems to slip the mind of people and the bland, simple, direct definition that the dictionary states seems to be the only thing that is remembered.

When on a team, those teammates become a web of support. A network of people who share an invisible bond. A bond that is instilled in every team member and deepened by the moments that are shared by the team. The crazy thing is that people, even some who are on a team, lose sight of what a team really is.

Being a part of a team is being a part of something bigger than yourself. The people on a team, whether by force or by will, spend large amounts of time together. They spend countless hours perfecting a skill they love, bonding, sharing memories and moments filled with every emotion someone could feel. Happiness, excitement, pride, nervousness, sadness, disappointment, discouragement; good or bad a team goes through more emotions together than some people go through with their closest friends. This reason alone shows why a team has a deeper meaning than being just a group of people.

Being on a team is a big role, and not a role for everyone. If someone doesn’t want the responsibility of caring for each and every teammate, making every moment one to remember, and bettering yourself in order to better the team, then the advice given is simply don’t join the team.

The meaning of a team is more than it appears and it is something that is hard to truly understand until one allows themselves the opportunity to experience it. It is an amazing feeling to be a part of something like a team, it’s a feeling like no other. A team isn’t just a group of people that compete together; a team is a group of people who share a deep bond that will last a lifetime.
