I play soccer for the Oakridge Soccer Club. I have been playing soccer since I was five years of age. When I first started playing Soccer I had a coach who used to go by the motto “every shot u miss, is a miss towards life.” Soccer is one of the two only sports I play and when I’m on the field I feel confident in myself because, if you show courage and confidence you will achieve your goal in life and even though my goal may not be to make goal for soccer my goal is to become a Soccer leader. I want to be a captain who talks to the referees during a game when our team has a problem, concern, or question.
Soccer shaped a lot of who I am, soccer has taught me how to commit, know when to make a move, and it has made me tolerant. Soccer is all about commiting to the ball, if one was to hesitate while going for a goal it will not be as powerful. I bring that into driving, school, talking, and writing. Along with committing one has to know exactly when to commit. Soccer is about timing, if I get to a certain position is a certain amount of time I will
Winning this game did not only mean bringing a shiny trophy home. It changed the way I thought about my skill and confidence. Few years ago when I started to play soccer, I was not the player that everyone depended on or was the most athletic. Winning my first championship game made believe that this is one of many trophies I will earn. This achievement made me work hard on improving myself as a soccer player.
i havent really had a back up plain, as people say, about what i want to do outside of sports, but i predict that i will be like my mom, also carring on her perfession. i do dream or wish to have a family one day , a child to teach soccer to like my parents did to me but thats not all also teaching him/her other sports to. Thats what I regret, never tring other sports. From begining to end of my life, I have been inspired by many people and also been through several significent moments that had an impact upon me, and for these two things i have dreams of whay i want to be in the future.
The is a World Cup that every country has a soccer team and then they compete against each other but it only happens four years apart. Well the first thing that you need to think of is the ball and were are you shooting it or passing it to. If you are going to kick it to the goal, you should kick it with your shoelace area on your foot but you have to determine how much power you are going to kick it with. If you are going to pass it you should kick it with the side of your foot or the back to have more control with the pass.
Soccer has been there to distract my brother from the negative influences Chicago has on a teenager. Similarly, my parents decided to sign me up for a soccer team to prevent me from going on a wrong path. The only problem in me playing soccer was that I was too old and had no other experience than knowing how to kick the ball. Thus, many teams did not accept me for being a rookie at the sport at my eleven years of age. On the other hand, it was my determination that caught the eye of another coach that lead me to learning a very important life skill: never give up.
Quickly, I realized that both of my opponents could hit the ball farther than me and I began to forget my father's guidance of playing conservatively, in an attempt to keep up with them. I began hitting my more inconsistent clubs, hoping for longer yardage. This method of “Go Big or Go Home” didn’t work out very well because after the first day I was losing by three strokes to Cooper and losing by four strokes to the freshman. After telling my dad how the first day had gone, he told me that I needed to play my own golf game and not worry about them. This would mean sacrificing yardage for a better score, something I was willing to do.
I knew the importance of our game because our first round was against the defending state champions, Cullman. Gameday was just three days away. The reality of the game was not hitting me just yet, but it was sure giving me jitters. I was constantly with my best friend during the last three days that was leading up to the moment. His name was Daniel, we have known each other since kindergarten, and he was a big asset to the team.
Not only are education and sports a big focus for me but also working the hardest I can. I have always heard the stories of people whose lives could have ended up horribly if it wasn’t for their hard work and perseverance. Lastly, something my parents taught me to do was to always do what you love and go after what makes me happy. I have never done anything because my parents wanted me to, I have learned to follow what I love and work hard to achieve what makes me
I first got interested in soccer when my brother began to play and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. When my brother began to become more invested in soccer I did to. As I have continued to play I have become more and more interested in doing my best and building on the skills I already had. At Saint Francis I hope to continue my love for soccer and share my talents with others. Along with soccer I am interested in photography and capturing moments and being able to share those moments with others.
I would try out for the team and play soccer all four years. This expectation carried me to “hell week,” as dozens of students strive to attain one of the coveted spots on the soccer team. As feet pounded the ground, and bodies impacted, as the green and gold ball bounced from player to player, I felt at home. And then it all came crashing down. I had progressed well, passing the first and second cuts with seeming ease.
This weekend I went to Kansas City. I went to Kansas City for my little brothers tournament. It was so fun being in Kansas City the whole weekend! I loved how my little brother was goalie a lot of the games this weekend! He never got scored on this weekend but part of that was his defense because there defense was the best.
“Touchdown Lafayette!” This was the start to my high school career and we were losing in the first half of the game. It took them forever to score so I believed that the defense could go hard and stop them just once. We knew if we lost it would be some smack going on social media so someone had to step up.
When I was in third grade, I experienced my first call to adventure. I started playing soccer around the age of 5, like most kids. I played for my local recreational league, and really fell in love with the sport. After being encouraged by my best friend, and after convincing my mom, I tried out for my local travel team and made it. I wasn 't a great soccer player, but after making the team I really developed persistence.
