Soccer had helped me break out of my shell socially and provided an outlet for stress relief. My life revolved around soccer. However, in the spring of freshman year I was burning out. I had finished the fall season of high school, winter league was over and I was trying to balance spring club soccer with high school track. Without a break and feeling overwhelmed, I grew disinterested in soccer as it became a stressful environment for me as the older girls had to join our team and I was no longer seeing the field a lot.
But, she was intimidated when Jules told her mom that she was playing for the girls’ soccer team as she gave a petrified look on her face. When Jess was about to give up on soccer to start participating in the traditional Indian customs to associate with her sister’s wedding, she was very displeased and uncomfortable. She did not complained about her dislikes, but it is very obvious that her non-verbal expressions shown everyone that she would rather be playing soccer. She sighed, does not make eye contact with her fellow groups and relatives, she even crossed her arms in a defensive way to avoid being communicating with them and stands far away since she isn’t feeling a strong connection to her ties of her families. It displays a one-to-few of communication techniques because Jules and Jess had an argument over their relationship with the coach named, Joe, since Jules told Jess that he was off-limits because Jules had her eyes on her but she was mistaken that Joe and Jess were kissing.
Anyways, I always loved going to school but that all changed when that horrible accident happened. I still remember it like it was just yesterday. It was a sunny but chilly November day. Before school, my dog Molly and I would go outside and play ball until the bus came. Before I would throw the green ball my arm was always oscillating before I actually threw it.

Jess is supposed to be focused on learning these traditional roles to eventually be married. The movie opens up with a playback of a scene from a soccer game of David Beckham. They somehow incorporated Jess into the match and she is being compared to Beckham as the next best soccer player. Her mom is a guest on the show and the anchors express to Mrs. Bhamra that she must be very proud of her daughter. Mrs. Bhamra then responds by saying “no Jess is bringing shame on the family by running
After lunch, Ashton and his friends felt bored so they decided to play soccer. They met in the afternoon and Ashton brought his new soccer ball, which cost ten dollars, along for the game. The nearby park was closed for maintenance so Ashton led everyone to his backyard instead. After an intensive warm-up exercise, they started practising for the upcoming inter-class soccer match and were determined on winning. “We have to defeat 5 Awesome this time round,” they chanted as they kicked the ball from player to player, each hoping they would not destroy any of Ashton’s mother’s plants and vegetation.
Here are the ways this art class experience and interaction caused everyone to change. For example, “‘I think I’m going to miss you a little,’ Andrea said to Zebra after the class. ‘I’ll only be away for a month.’ ‘Can I help you with some of those drawings?’ ‘Sure. I’ll carry the helicopter.’” (Potok 59) The text shows how the art class made Andrea and Zebra friends. During the art class, the two began to get along and when Zebra had to to leave for summer camp, Andrea was sad and would miss Zebra.
THE THEURKAUFS As I previously stated, The MIT Varsity Soccer Team sometimes played the first game of the season against The Harvard University Varsity team. But we always played the final game against The Coast Guard Academy team, alternating between Cambridge Mass and New London Connecticut. Tom Theurkauf was a member of the MIT team, and his mother was to my knowledge, the original Soccer Mom. She never missed a game either home or away. Being the final game of the season, we ended up at their house, the game having been played nearby.
One day, whilst playing, she is seen by Juliette Paxton (Jules) who plays in a girls football team (Hounslow Harriers) and asks Jess to try out for the team. Even though Joe is sceptical about a new player joining, he soon finds that Jess’ skills on the football field are amazing.
Soccer Heartbreak and Triumph The weather was intense in the month of April. My high school soccer playoffs were just around the corner. So, training was an absolute nightmare for the team and I. We ran countless drills, ran countless miles, and dribbled countless times. Sure, it was a struggle, but I knew that I had to make every moment worth it because this would be my last shot at soccer glory.
“Why can’t we get into our freaking offense! ?” This is all I really remember from Coach McKendrick at halftime last year against Niles North in what was a tough night for our basketball team. Prior to this, we beat New Trier at home and then went on the road and beat the pre-season unanimous vote to win conference, Highland Park, in our first conference game. Before the New Trier game, our game plan was simple: we were smaller, but faster, so we were going to run the court and make this is a fast pace game. We executed our gameplan, and we won.
