He said it will help me a lot with my soccer skills. I went the next day to the track coach. He said it was fine for me to join them since I was already in the soccer team. I remember after talking to the coach. I went to the track.
This opportunity was something I had worked for, and I remember a slow sadness washed over me. Eventually, I went to the tryout with my cast bubble-wrapped, already knowing my fate and felt a physical and mental difference in how I played the game. My mind always drifted to the possibility of being injured again, so as I expected, I didn't make it into the
What started off as a way to impress my father, turned into a voracious desire to play soccer. Day after day I stepped on the field and gave everything I had. It showed too. I exponentially grew in ability and before long my father organized a tryout for the Houston Dynamo academy, the most competitive and exacting soccer team in the
As the music crescendos around me and I toss my saber, everything else fades away until it's just me, the music and my saber. Months of hard work, dedication, and lessons I have learned come flashing back. I can't believe that there was a time before I knew how to spin anything, even a flag. Color Guard has helped me grow as a person over the last few years. In the beginning of my freshman year of school, the Guard program was not strong but because I wanted to join, I started to build the program.
In grade eight I joined a track and field, outside of school called Ottawa Lions, and it was great while it lasted but I quit the club because it was too expensive my parents told me. So after middle school I came to Glebe collegiate institute. It was very scary at first, but then I joined the football team as a freshman and I met a lot of new people. I was one of the few freshmans that got to play in a varsity football team, and since I was under 100 pounds and the shortest guy on the team, II was very proud for myself. But one day during football practice I felt a tear in my left calf so I stopped playing football, and I could barely walk.
My Path Anita said “you’re really talented with your feet.” With a grin on my face, I realized that I was born to be an athlete! At age five my family and I would always go to parties. I danced all day long making my feet exhausted like a person running a marathon. Although I love to dance, I also have a big passion for soccer.
Practices normally happen 3-4 days week and 1-2 hours long, that is about 3-6 hours a week of exercising. Youth sports can also have a huge impact on your life. Tyler Ward has been playing soccer his whole life. When he was 2 his mother enrolled him in a toddler soccer program.
I will never forget the time I tried out for the high school tennis team. It was spring of freshman year when I decided to pursue tennis. I attended a few tennis camps in the past and didn’t have much experience in the sport. I desired to be a part of a school team and tennis seemed to interest me. To strengthen my skills in the sport, I started to take lessons from a professional tennis instructor named Don Henson.
Most people do not believe that becoming a professional athlete is possible, but I think that with the right preparation, it is possible for me to achieve my career goal of becoming a professional soccer player. For people to acquire the career of their dreams, they will need to set themselves a series of goals. These goals will be conquered over varying time periods, while some goals take just hour or days or others that take weeks, months, or even years. Each career will require different preparation, but for me as an aspiring soccer player I will need to practice very often.
Bad habits and drug abuse is a very common thing for adolescents to get pulled into at a young age. Most schools, drug test sports players, helping to reduce the amount of adolescents on drugs. Sports are extremely beneficial because we all know that hard work pays off. Although there are many benefits to playing sports, there are some downsides to the involvement as well.
That summer, I felt good and I was doing well with the running and I thought this would be the year. Again, my dreams were crushed as I didn’t make varsity and also was forced to switch positions and lost my starting spot at the beginning of the season. I had fallen far from being a freshman playing on JV to as a junior losing my starting spot to a freshman playing JV. Oh, the irony.
Recently I committed to Allen Community College to continue my soccer career. Having done this all my hard work has payed off. A few months ago I was questioning if I even wanted to continue playing after high school season ended but Allen definitely changed that for me. This is one of my biggest achievement because soccer has always had such a positive impact on my life. Being able to say that I got offered a scholarship to continue playing has had a huge impacts on me as a person.
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.
Freshman year was going to be a new start. That whole summer I went to camps and every clinqne I could. My level of play was progressing and I was feeling more confident going into high school. My freshman year was here and it was time to fight for a starting spot. The good thing about playing sports at a small school is you have a much better chance of playing.
Once I strapped on the helmet and shoulder pads, I was hooked. Let me tell you first off, I loved football, but we were not a good team in my youngers days. I started in second grade, and from then all the way up to sophomore year, we only won about one game every year. There is just something about it though, that kept me coming
