Even so, my progress as a soccer player is simply incomplete without the weekly training that I endured through these years. I may not have the natural flair or the instinctual feel that others may have for the game, but my dedication to this sport has certainly granted me the edge - an attitude that I always bring onto the pitch. Finally, I now know that the pursuit to success, whether in soccer or in the immense world of economics, can only be realized through teamwork and a foundation strengthened by strong work
I knew I would become close with my team since I spent so much time with them, but then I realized even once volleyball was over, they would still be my family. This year as varsity setter, I knew I had to take on the responsibility of leadership. I did not realize however, that I would become the team mom at the same time. My responsibility was to make sure everyone on my team kept their heads up and stayed confident because I believed in them.
Soccer is a great example, of many, for speed-accuracy trade-off. Soccer shows speed-accuracy movement trade-off by the player applying both movements for the final outcome or end result to be a goal for the team, if looking at it from the offensive perspective. Some of the ramifications of speeded movements in soccer can lead to missing out on a goal, a completed pass, or even worse, allowing the other team to score a goal. It is possible with practice for anyone who has never played soccer before to actually become better and perform the task accurately, as well as soccer players. For example, I remember when I was going through my personal training school last year and we use to play soccer on Fridays because the guys saw improvement.
Finally, I took a deep breath swung my worn out foot back and struck the ball with all my might as if my life depended on it. The ball curved to the top right corner of the goal and the crowd went wild. Instead of there being a melancholy atmosphere looming over me, an atmosphere of blissfulness surrounds me. When I got back home, I saw Bill and he told me, “Although you were terrible in the beginning, you came through in the end and earned your respect.” My coach called everybody on the team to a meeting the next day and announced that we will be going to the State Cup.
It was my first race of my career, and I did not know what to expect. I sat down in the field, mad at myself for losing. Thoughts of quitting altogether crossed my mind. However, I kept pushing onwards, and over the course of the season I got progressively better with my skills and my attitude. Running is not the only thing that keeps my time occupied.
One of the most significant activities in my life would have to be soccer ever since I got a hold of the ball in 10th grade, it sparked my interest and a fire was ignited. It simply stared with a few friends asking me to join them then slowly progressed into everyday after school I would go outside to kick around the ball, I never really knew it was for me until I started getting more into it, soccer became my outlet more like an escape for me, it was somewhere I could go when I needed to be alone just the ball and I. Honestly, I never knew that it would affect me in the way it has, it started out as a just for fun kind of thing, then it escalated into actually playing games, turning more into a passion and I could actually see myself in the
My Injury It was a good and aggressive soccer game. It was tied 2-1 and 5 minutes left until halftime. They were a pretty good team but we knew we could beat them.
The first value that has affected my life, is the one about never giving up. This one means a lot to me because whenever I fail or lose, I always get back up on my feet and keep going at it until I’ve got the job done. In soccer, this value can be related at any point in the game. I have many experiences with this whenever I go to play the sport I love. For example when I’m playing out on the soccer pitch I can feel the smooth grass and watch how the ball rolls swiftly across the grass, and when the match starts the opponents that face would juke me out to get past me.
When stepping into college soccer team, I did not expect the preseason to be so difficult. The beep test, the strength, and condition were not so bad. However, what makes me realized how ignorance I was is the skills section. I overestimate myself. I make many mistakes but still thinking everything was alright,
It was a couple of minutes later and they shot the ball and the soccer ball went over my head and it hit the crossbar. I was so relieved. Then our teammate slid into one of the other player’s and they got a penalty kick. I got so nervous because I thought they were going to make it.
A failure can be a downward spiral or a setback turning into a benefit. When athletes experience head trauma, they only recover a little, which might end their career early or other times people never recover. In the case of my four month concussion, there are residual mental and physical problems. For me, this challenge helped me develop as a person than will work harder and strive for the best in my academics. Running onto the field, I can 't believe we won it - the High School Girls ' Rugby Championship.
The game started on time, and my team played hard like always. As the end of the first half rolled around we were winning 2-0, as expected. My team and I took the field as the second half began, but I had no clue how much this second half was going to impact my life. It seemed like such an average day, but I couldn’t have
Being apart of the Girard soccer team is one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was more than just playing soccer, this lead to friendships and sort of a second family. I still keep in touch and still friends with most of my old teammates who have graduated. I’m friends with certain people, who I thought I would never be friends with. These friendships would not have occurred with the help from being on the team.
