My freshman year of high school Coach Specht was the assistant soccer coach. At tryouts he told me that I would have a bright future as a player and could possibly play varsity as a freshman. Throughout the year, I keep putting in the time and finally half way through the season, I got my chance to play my first varsity game. This showed me that he really believed in my skill, to put a freshman in against mostly juniors and seniors. Not many coaches will risk putting someone that young on the field.
You can enjoy the moments when you play with your friends and family as well as when you join a soccer team. You will be meeting new friends that you have not met before. It is helpful because you and your team will have rules to do when you play in the field, and they build trust with you which you can know everyone strength from weakness. Gaining a friend can increase your popularity which also at the same time will encourage you to play much better. For example, I have been playing soccer for a long time with my buddies, and they call me in every time there is a match.
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.
Wambach is already eternalized in American soccer history as well as left her trademark on international play. Despite how much the sport will grow in the next generations, we have her to thank as much as anyone for her contributions to the sport for the waves of younger generations to come. Leaving us to think, if this commercial was not created to market Gatorade’s product by using the technique of association and bandwagon, what is the purpose of the advertisement in regards to Abby Wambach as a player or the sport of soccer? With her use of repetition and appeal to emotion, Abby Wambach wants people to believe she is no longer speaking as the most prolific international goal scorer in all of soccer, the most highly regarded leader in all of women’s sports, or tireless advocate for women’s sports and rights off the field. This was created to encompass the person rather than a player, to recognize Wambach as the individual and not as the
The entire reason a team is put together and participating in practice almost every day is going towards our goal as a team to win games. Aside from our goal of winning our games, my volleyball team also worked our way to going to districts—where the top teams go to play against each other for the title of district champions. Then, if we were to make it past districts, we would participate in trying to win states—another tournament that multiple winners of different districts come together to compete against each other. Joining the volleyball team for me was for my personal enjoyment and to get involved in my high school community. These two reasons are what the majority of people join the team for.
Having only one soccer club in Bend to play competitively on and having a relatively small population put me playing with almost the exact same group of girls in the club as I grew up. This also left me knowing everyone who plays soccer and consequently when I got to high school soccer, I was still with the same girls. We had been playing with each other for 7 plus years and had become an incredibly close unit on and off the field. Some of my closest friends came from playing soccer. Soccer had helped me break out of my shell socially and provided an outlet for stress relief.
I have never been the best volleyball player out there. However, that has never stopped me from working to be the best player I can be. I have spent hours in the gym doing private lessons to work with a coach one on one to improve my game. I have spent hours with personal trainers working to improve my speed, jumping, strength, and all the things that come becoming a better athlete. Because of this hard work, I lettered varsity my freshman year at Crown Point, and I was placed on the varsity Munster volleyball team.
I desperately wanted to and I desired to show my team that I was capable of doing it. Every single girl on my team has scored a goal, so I felt left out in the cold. I was dedicated to strengthening my abilities, and I was practicing to become better. With the assistance of my family, coach, and teammates, I was able to score my first goal! On a brisk, fall day I decided that the only way to
Playing with her for 3 years was one of the best experiences for me because I was challenged by her hard work ethic every day in practice and got to guard her every single day. Being on the court with her for every practice made a huge impact on my game because she was such a phenomenal player to play against/with. I do not have a specific story with her, but just creating a relationship with her inside and outside of basketball helped me get to know an amazing person on a greater level.

Tom Brady vs. Mia Hamm Today, athletes are viewed as iconic models and mentors for the aspiring generation of athletes hoping to eventually be at the professional league at a moment in their careers. According to Brady, he has kept his team at the national spotlight for six years. Star-studded and Olympic Gold Medalist Mia Hamm has accomplished many achievements over the years as an athlete for the United States Women’s National Soccer Team. Mia Hamm and Tom Brady have similarities and differences as types of athletes in our world today. I believe they can be compared and contrasted in three ways.
She explained that the seniors on the team have been around for a long time and have the most experience with college level soccer.

Maryse has a very level headed view about this season, explaining that “things just take of themselves”. The team trains
This extraordinary soccer player has been dominating the field lately and showing people exactly what she can do. She managed to score 3 goals in under the time of the 1st quarter in the finals of the 2015 Fifa World Cup (Scott, N. 2015).

She played a major role for her teams success and their wins throughout the Olympics, world cups, and many matches.
