"Additional Info" question

<p>For my extracurriculars, I was heavily involved in sports but stopped after 10th grade. This was pretty much due to tearing muscles and messing up knees and ankles so much that it just wasn't worth it anymore. Should I explain why the sports suddenly stopped or does it really only matter that I stopped playing and not why I stopped?</p>

<p>Colleges are usually looking for a commitment to the activities you participate in. So if you had to "retire" from sports due to injuries, it will help you to mention that in your app.</p>
