      I grew up playing several of the sports options listed in organized leagues, plus the unorganized play that kids used to do around the neighborhood. That was through high school, and even some intramural sports in college.

      As an adult, I went back to my favorite sport, ice hockey, and took up officiating to stay involved with the game. I worked youth and high school level games for over twenty years before retiring due to health reasons.

      I also officiated lacrosse for three seasons at youth and high school levels. I had to give that up after a knee injury sustained officiating hockey.

      So, don’t forget that not only do some people grow up playing sports, but some of us weirdos become officials when we grow up, or grow older.

      I was a bodybuilder and would cut several cords of oak firewood each season with no power tools. I was 6’6 and 245lbs of muscle. I was running away from what I was and I ran so hard I literally ran up mountains.

      I’m an avid Ice hockey player. I play twice a week.

      I also enjoy lifting weights regularly, snow skiing, scuba diving, and volleyball as well.

      I played Football(both versions) in High School and ran track(400M).

      Volleyball was my weekend stress release after work and on the weekends for years….

      This was a nice, outside the average, question…thanks.

      HAve fun out there,

      Rayna

      I used to lift weights and run a lot.  I stopped lifting weights years ago but still have the broad shoulders and thick arms.  That works against me now that I want to look more feminine.  Do all crossdressers go through a phase where they try to deny their femme side? I still try to jog every day but I’m pretty slow due to arthritic knees and artificial hip.

        I would say 99% deny that side of ourselves and most either embrace it to some degree or repress it. Obviously neither point us easy but at least embracing it let’s us feel better, sometimes at the cost of losing loved ones. To me, repressing it was making me lose myself. Thankfully having a supportive spouse and a few friends, whether on cdh or in our personal lives, is a HUGE help. I’m very grateful for finding CDH. Don’t hesitate to reach to people on here.

          Jessica,

          Thanks for your kind reply.  I have decided not to repress my femme side anymore.  My wife moved out on me and now I’m alone.  I brought my clothes down from the attic and put them in a spare bedroom.  I even have my own makeup table now.  I dressed and did my makeup. Took a few selfies and generally had a nice time.  More fun to come!

            Not really. I never dressed in front of her.  She left for a variety of reasons which I’ll refer to as irreconsilable differences.

        Kerri,

        Not all, but many do. Many cd/tg individuals join the army, or police/firefighters, as an attempt to bury the impulses to dress. So, you are definitely not alone there.

      Wow what a great question. For me growing up under the learned assumption that manly men were the only ones that played sports it led to a lot of confusion. I played baseball, basketball, raquetball, golf, ping pong flag football and tried every other sport once to see if liked it. And tbh, I was above average in the sports I played. I still play golf, basketball and ping pong. As to the confusion aspect, I struggled with wanting to wear the cute outifts while wanting to play the aforementioned sports. I wanted to be the star cheerleader while being captain of the basketball team (i was one of those…lol). Love this poll and all my cdh athletes!

      When I was first in school there were only two sports to choose from Rugby/Rugby League in the winter and cricket in the summer! Grass hockey and soccer were for the ‘sick, lame or lazy’!
      Luckily I was very good a cricket…
      Fencing at high school level and became New Zealand champion in two disciplines foil and épée though cricket still loomed large (I only stopped playing cricket at 50)
      Was a ski instructor for 25 years, surfed in the summers, played ice hockey later on and was a competitive cyclist for 50 years…

      Hi Gabriela,

      I played sports like football and rugby union at school (you cpuldn’t avoid ’em), but being short sighted, I never was much good.

      I did enjoy cross country running, good enough to to get picked for regional races (featuring 100s of competitors), but never good enough to feature very high. Sometimes, wet, windswept and wintry, and running in the back of beyond when it was no harder to finish as it was to give up, I got my first taste of masochism.

      I’m pleased you gave billiards as an option – it, along with darts, snooker and pool, are all sports / pastimes that you can play with a pint of beer at your side 😉

      Chess- is that a sport? It certainly exhausted me playing matches in club league level.

      And one of the best things to ever come out of America – Frisbee!!! Used to love it when younger.

      I didn’t play sports in high school but managed the basketball team my freshman year, and managed the hockey teams in my Jr. and Sr. years.  Both were a lot of fun, as I wasn’t the most athletic person.  I hunt fish and shoot as an adult.  I love those sports.  My family golfs like there is no tomorrow, me I have the hook from hell and slice to match!  Not much fun when you ball lands two fairways over.

      As a youngster played baseball in city league. Played intramural sports in the military (flag football, basketball and softball).  Have played hockey and softball since then and currently run 1bout 1200 miles a year and play golf once a week. Mostly 5K to half marathon.

      Toodles!

      I played baseball when I was a kid. Then I got into skateboarding and surfing and spent many years being a surf rat. I still have my boards, but they are just wall art in one of my garages now. It’s mostly been golf for the last twenty years.

      I was never interested in traditional sports during school.

      When in the military I got to be pretty good at billards and won some tournaments but you have to play all the time to be really good.

      Always loved the water and was a lifeguard at the officers pool when in the military. Did a lot of water skiing too. I’m surprised at this time there are only two votes for scuba diving. Its a fantastic magical world underwater and a shame the coral reefs are dying.

      Was self employed for many years and sponsored a bowling team a few years but we never won a trophy…. still, it was a fun bonding sport.

      During the time of overcompensating my masculinity, I took up archery for hunting game and have gone deer, elk, and bear hunting.

      What in the world is “Hicking”??

      As a kid I played a lot of sport at school, because you had to. I took to a sport that was considered sedentary but, believe me, the energy and physical exertion needed was more than people think.I won stuff to International level, but that don’t impress much.

      Aside from that I did running. You show me hard work and I’ll run a mile!

      That is a wonderfully extensive list to choose from Gaby!  Thanks!

      In order… baseball first.  Played for years in various restaurant leagues in years past.  The only sport I could play competantly, and I still have a good, if not ‘gold’, glove.  I LOVE billiards and swimming as well.

      And being tall, I would just L-O-V-E to get a cdh beach volleyball team together!! 😃😁.  I’m grinning just thinking about it.

       

      Edit:  I did play Football (soccer!!) As a teen, but my asthma quickly ended that fun ☹

      I’ve never been particularly good at sports.  A lot has to do with asthma and reduced lung capacity, probably both related to second hand smoke during my developmental years.  Running, jumping, or climbing stairs get me winded very quickly with long recovery times.

      I did play a bit during required gym classes, and might play volleyball or softball during a company picnic (although I hate the aluminum bats; their weight distribution is wrong, and they hurt more when you hit the ball).  I played goalie one year in intramural floor hockey at college (we used a pseudo leather covered foam puck).  I used to ice skate, but it was more recreational than sport.  I also went skiing a few times.

      I do attend some exercise classes at work where we use weights for resistance training, but not body building.  Still, I often can’t do as many reps or have to modify moves (lower intensity or just work the same muscles differently).  Some of this is age related, some to belly fat which squeezes the space where my diaphragm wants to expand, some to tight muscles (hamstrings and lower back), and some to aforementioned problems.  But I do what I can and modify where I can’t.  And I try to do some walking every day, and often en femme.

      I did all the manly sports. Baseball was my favorite. Football right behind that. At 5’9″ and 150#, while I could make a hole in a brick wall, it would be a small hole. I even played a few years of soccer with my younger brother. Probably the sports I was best at was track (sprinter) and bowling. Odd pair I know. Was pretty good at water skiing, but that’s an expensive sport! Later in life, I loved golf. Was horrible at it. It is a sport that the more you play, you don’t necessarily get better at it.

      At 64, the only sport I might do any of at all is hiking. And not much of that. Even with the motivation of “get that waist down to a cute size” usually isn’t enough. And to answer all the questions in everybody’s mind – I have no idea how I wound up wanting to be a crossdresser. Well I do, but the sports side of my life doesn’t explain much of it!

      I ran cross-country, played basketball and baseball while in school. In my 20-40’s I was a runner – completed two marathons. Now I play golf a couple times a week (8.6 handicap index).

      Ice hockey was my love until my early university years.  But the injuries got to be too much.  Since then I’ve stuck to non-contact sports.

      I was an international canoe racer and coach for several years, paddling both Canoe and Kayak in sprint and marathon races. Selected to race for the GB team but sadly political events prevented my olympic attendance, but did compete in the world championships. I still paddle for recreation, and live next to a nice rural canal which gives me a lovely environment relax in while keeping mind and body fit together.

      Cycling, my partner and I cycled round the world for 6 yrs, touring though abut 40 countries and covering about 36,000 miles in that time. We still ride from time to time but only short day rides nowadays.

      As the slogan says – just do it !

      I was no good at the team sports. Athletically challenged would best describe my childhood. I enjoyed golf somewhat back in the 80’s & 90’s, though the version I played was more like Swing, and Swear. I loved skiing before my knees couldn’t do it anymore, and weight lifting is part of my exercise program. That and stretching keep me from falling apart.😆

      Enjoyed bowling 🎳, baseball, softball, tennis and ice skating (non-hockey or figure) in my younger days. Being tall I also loved volley ball (not listed). Most sports can easily be enjoyed by either boys or girls.

      I never did sports, just wasn’t any good at any of them, poor coordination perhaps?

      On the other hand I rode motocross motorcycles like a mad man! I just never had the money and support needed to do anything with it. I used to ride with a guy that was at the top of the standings in the state. He mentioned more than once that he was amazed that I could keep up with him on my ten year old, well abused dirt bike and he wondered what I could do with a decent motorcycle and some training.

      It wasn’t unusual for me to spend 10-12 hours a day riding motocross, day after day. I loved it. Probably one of the reasons I was good at it was the time I spent with it.

      I did all the boy/guy things, and was blessed with certain talents. However i still wanted to be and dress like a girl. All my love sisters, thanks for letting me be a part of this world.
