Competing with yourself or others is a heck of a satisfying way to hone yourself. Friendly or serious sports of many many types can be found all around Davis, and then there's the iconic Davis sport, bicycling. There are plenty of fields, courts and places to play in town.

You might look into getting into shape to compete by getting some exercise, possibly at a gym, or skip the competition aspect and just enjoy an outdoor activity. (You can also just watch them, alone or with friends).

If you're a younger Davisite, you might look into youth sports, or if you're a student at UC Davis, you might be interested in the intramural sports & sport clubs that are on campus. Also, there's a type of sport popular in Davis that can't be played here, but snow sports can be found within easy travel distance.

If you find yourself really excelling at a particular sport, maybe you'll join the ranks of Davis' Olympic or professional athletes someday.
