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. In other words, I believe soccer has changed my life and became an ongoing achievement in my life, that will forever stay in my heart forever.
I have been playing soccer more years than I have been in school. 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
Back in the 18th and early-19th century, soccer was looked down upon in many parts of the world and didn’t start getting attention until England picked it up. Since then, people from all around have shown their love for the sport. “According to a 2001 FIFA survey, over 240 million people regularly play soccer in more than 200 countries, in every part of the world,” (Starkebaum "Soccer's influence in the United States" 2016). Soccer has become so global that hundreds of countries around the world compete for 31 spots in the FIFA world cup, which happens every four years. The simplicity of soccer has allowed people in all corners of the world to play soccer, regardless of economic or social
As I was playing for that team once we had a game which was about 4 miles away from our village that the whole team had to run there because nobody had a car or anything and I used to run without even getting tired, We had won that game. Back then I moved to Syria and I didn't play that much soccer but I used to watch the games on tv, The soccer game affected the Arabic people so much which I remember this , one time I was walking through a street which there are kids on one side of the street and other on the other side one group was wearing Real Madrid shirts and the other where wearing Barcelona FC shirts so as I'm walking one guy asks me who you support Barca or Real and sometimes you have to be smart you have to think before you say so the guy was wearing Real Madrid shirt and I said Real Madrid and he celebrated he was screaming that I'm a Real fan and the others got mad so he asked me what my name was and I said Ronaldo, he didn’t believe me till he came to my house and asked my brother. When i came out to the
The Lessons I took in Soccer Team I joined a soccer team when I was in junior high school, and it significant changed my life. A group influences one a lot in whether positive or negative ways, thus the soccer team I joined is not an exception. Team work, self-disciplined, sense of honor, and etc. are what it taught me. Through there were no so called expressly stipulated, there were several unspoken rule.
I once took a risk when I played soccer. I interested in soccer when I was young and I tried to improve my skill soccer. When I played soccer with my friends after school at the soccer field near my school. I wanted to play as a goalkeeper then a few minutes I tried to save a ball by jumping into it. After that jumped I did not see goal post at right side of me until my head got hit by it then I passed out and I woke up at hospital.
Entering high school my freshman year, many things were new to me, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to get involved in as a student. The only thing I was sure of was that I was going to play high school soccer. I’d been playing soccer since I was about 8 years old, and finally having the ability to play for the high school I grew up watching was exhilarating. My main goal going into the soccer program was that I wanted to make the varsity soccer team by my senior year in high school- my brother had been a former varsity player, and I greatly wanted to fill his shoes and leave my mark at the school. Throughout my four years in the program, that was my main focus, but I was happy to discover that I was also making friends along the way.
Our team had no faith in ourselves. We knew something had to be done. As our opponents attempted a possible score, our goalie prevented the goal, but injured himself with 10 minutes remaining on the clock. I pulled up my socks, fastened my shin guards, and went onto the field to substitute for my team’s left forward. About an hour and a half ago, my competitive soccer team in Milpitas was heading to our last game in Bakers Field, California.
Scoring My First Goal Have you ever faced a challenging time in your life, or a hardship? Well I have, and it was a time when I was playing soccer for AYSO. It happened about 3 years ago, in 2012. It was my second year of playing soccer, and I have never scored a goal while I was playing on the team. I desperately wanted to and I desired to show my team that I was capable of doing it.
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.
One year ago I confidently tried out for a travel soccer team, only to be disappointed, now I 've learned that hard work always beats talent. My dad always told me that hard work always beats talent when talent fails to work hard, but I never really thought of it that way. Once the tryouts had started I depended on the talent that I had. By the time it was the second day I was feeling really confident that I had this in the bag. I thought I was going to make the team easily.
I then realized, I might not have soccer, but I had a great academic opportunity in becoming a Chemical Engineer . Back in middle school, I was the type of guy who always got in trouble, skipped class, disrespect other students and even disrespect adults. My grades were not adequate, the only reason I was passing, was due to soccer. As a result I was considered
I was determined to and successfully lost my accent and got tested into the gifted program after a year of school. This determination has continued through high school where I was accepted into the Scholars Academy. Beyond academics, my determination plays a big role in my life after school. Having always been a fan of the sport of surfing, at a young age soon after moving to Miami, I decided to teach myself how to surf. Having only
This group that I am in is social group because it is like what the textbook says. The author stated that the small group of moderate duration and permeability characterized by moderate levels of interaction over an extended period of time, often in goal-focused situations (Forsyth, pg. 14). My team and I have a goal, which is to enjoy playing volleyball and try our best to win against other teams. We don’t really involve our feelings about anything when we interact with each other except of how we communicate, how we should have played, and how we should be very committed to attend volleyball
The last four years of my high school career have flew by, especially my Girard soccer career. Many memories were made throughout my career from making playoffs my sophomore year to playing my last soccer game on senior night. The endeavor of striving to make playoffs for the first time since the 90’s. I knew after playing my very last soccer game, that I contributed to something that was outstanding for this program. That’s something that I will remember for the rest of my life.
