These are all things that have made me into the person I am today and it all began on the soccer field. For many years of my life all I did was play soccer. I kicked around a soccer ball in my house, rushed out to the field to play during recess, and then went to practice after school. I was constantly playing and making new friends outside of the classroom. Some of the friends I’ve made playing youth soccer have become my best friends now.
I worked hard during practice and out of practice to become better and, eventually, I became more aggressive than them. My eighth-grade year, I tried out for the school’s co-ed soccer team and was confident that I would make the team. During the three hard days of try-outs, I pushed myself to improve each day and received several compliments from the coaches. On the last day, the head coach pulled me aside to tell me
Soccer is not just a sport, it’s a passion. As I was born into a family, where they were so compassionate for the game. I have been playing soccer, since I was three years old, and ever since I have always wondered if I would ever be like Alex Morgan on the USWNT someday. Often times, I have felt very dismal, the best pick-me-up is playing soccer. Having that strong soccer background from a dad, thinking the soccer field is a magical place.
However, this stereotype did not make my dad desist from trying to initiate me to soccer, and, since I was four years old, he would bring me to the park and teach me how to kick a ball and play soccer. Rapidly soccer became not only my biggest passion but also the common ground between my father and me. More than anything else, I wanted to play soccer. I would play with my friends at the park or alone in the living room; however I craved to play in a team. My determination to pursue my passion was so overwhelming that I chose to join a soccer team where I
Both heroes face challenging obstacles, reach a significant low point, and are physically and/or mentally reborn. Jess chooses to keep pushing through the challenges she faces, and to not give up on her dream. Jess also adopts a new state of mind, in which she chooses to not deceive her parents. This persistent effort, and her mental rebirth pays off for Jess, and she reaches her ultimate goal of becoming a soccer
Although going through hardships may not necessarily be the most positive experience, the lessons people learn from the obstacles everyone goes through can be significantly fundamental to later success. I have been particularly fortunate in that I have not had to undergo substantial privations. One setback that will always be ingrained in my memory is a soccer game that I was playing during my freshman year of high school. It was the beginning of the year and I was transitioning from a big-bad eighth grader, into an insecure and quiet freshman. I had been playing soccer for the past few years, so I tried out for the high school team.
My senior year I decided to tryout for the soccer team. I thought I had a pretty good chance in making the soccer team since I’ve had some experience playing soccer, and I thought I was pretty good. Anyway, I ended up making the team, and their were some times I felt like quitting because we did ran so much, but luckly I had my friends who motivated
Of course I wanted to maintain my fitness for soccer, but while the fellow track stars were dreading the distance runs, I was secretly eager to push myself. Every practice, I yearned to prove wrong the coaches, friends, and family who advised against it. My soccer coaches always told me that quickness
Challenge “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn’t change you.” Soccer is a sport that taught me nothing is guaranteed, nothing is impossible, and most importantly, nothing comes easy. It not only takes skill to master the sport, but it also takes heart and desire to motivate yourself through the good and bad times. The challenge of pushing away the voices that simply tell me to give up was and still is one of the most frustrating parts i had to deal with. I learned that the greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fail something. During a soccer game, the match was tied and I had a clear chance to 1v1 the goalie, I decided to do a “dancing” dribble and then shoot the ball but the goalie stopped my shot because he was as big as a bus.
Going to the soccer academy was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. It took my soccer to a new level. Working there made me want to get better as I was improving. Moving through the wet grass, taking small touches on the slick ball. I enjoyed every aspect of it.
Everybody has a passion for something that they enjoy doing and spend most of their time doing. I enjoy playing soccer and it has become one of my biggest passions ever since I was the age of 5. I enjoy playing it more than any other sport I have ever participated in. The soccer program in Sigourney allows you to play from preschool all the way up to 6th grade. The recreational youth soccer teams in Sigourney are made up of Sigourney Keota, and Tri-County kids, but the majority of the kids on the teams are from Sigourney.
On January 18, my life began, however, my story truly began when I was three. For the past three years, I’ve never really had a passion, a love, a story, in anything except my beloved Hot Wheels, but that craze did not last. A little while later, my parents bought me a soccer ball as a late birthday present and brought me to this little flat field. There, they taught me how to kick a ball and I’ve loved it ever since. Even to this day, I thrive for soccer and I honestly think that I am not capable of going more than a week without it.
