Which ECs?

Here are the ECs I don't know what to do with.

9th grade JV sport
Spanish teacher's "favorite student" award (not titled that of course)
swim instructor (9th and maybe 10th grade summer) part time
video production (9th-12th, have a well known youtube channel, within my niche)

Basically I have one huge EC that I started in middle school, and it got serious in high school so I dropped soccer and the swim teacher thing. I just don't know if I should also list these other ECs since they're lame compared to my main one.

Thank you. PLEASE comment. :)

    Definitely keep the video production and NHS

    Dont put down the spanish award (that wouldnt go in the EC section anyway)

    Put in the swim instructor and 9th grade sport if you have room, but it wont make much of a difference either way.

    Ok thanks thats exactly the sort of info I'm looking for. I'll probably just leave off the sport and the swim thing then.
