If the sport has an instrument (like a ball, for instance), the verb used in front of these names of sports is "to play" (a juca).

Example: Eu joc fotbal / tenis / baschet (I play football / tennis / basket ball).

The verb "a juca" (to play) has the following forms in the Present Indicative:

eu joc, tu joci, el/ea joacă, noi jucăm, voi jucați, ei/ele joacă.

In all the other situations, we use the verb "to do" (a face)

Example: Eu fac schi / înot (I do ski / swimming)

The verb "a face" (to do) has the following forms in the Present Indicative:

eu fac, tu faci, el/ea face, noi facem, voi faceți, ei/ele fac.

The general phrase "I do sport" is formed with the verb "to do":

Eu fac sport (I do sport)
