The hypothesis for this project was “If a soccer ball has less regulation air pressure, then the distance the ball travels when kicked will be less.” It was therefore rejected. The soccer ball with less air traveled farther than the soccer ball with more air. The average distance of the soccer ball with less air traveled 29 yards, and the soccer ball wind or that I was tired.with more air traveled at an average distance of 19 yards. could’ve been caused by the It
How to kick a soccer ball is very difficult if you haven’t played soccer or anything near soccer it will be difficult to learn. I’m doing this because there are some people out there that still don’t know how to kick a soccer ball.This has been from a sport that dates back to the 19th century, where England had the idea.

If we study conflict theory we can see that those who possess economic power have the majority of the control in sports and sporting events. Activities such as golfing which require the purchase of expensive goods or membership are more widely accessible to those of higher socioeconomic groups. Townsend (1997) found that as well as this, those from higher socioeconomic backgrounds found it feasible to attend cricket events which could last for several days or to spend a day on the golf course.

Since graduate school I have identified that I have trouble writing papers on subjects that are not of interest to me. I struggle to remain focus, and I get writer’s block often. It has been established that when and individual has selective attention they are generally working at the basic levels of perceptual identification (Weber & Johnson, 2009).
One scientific theory related to this experiment is the Magnus Effect. The Magnus Effect is in action when the ball is pushed from high to low pressure, which makes it curve (The Physics of Kicking a Soccer Ball). During the Magnus Effect, the passing air is moving the same direction as the surface of contact on one side of the ball. Since the person in this experiment kicked with their left foot, the ball curved to the right a little because the air moved over the ball faster on the left side, causing less pressure on the other side of the ball. All of this air movement is what makes the ball slant in a different direction. Another thing to consider is that the slower the ball is moving, the more it curves. Generally, the Magnus Effect agrees
Lacking self-confidence can decrease one's' eager to learn, ability to focus, and the wish to take risks. I've always been a person who was shy and lacked self-confidence. Even if everyone else thought I was the best at something, I somehow found my way to feeling self-doubted. I tried blocking out the doubt several times, but I just don't happen to feel myself.

Soccer isn’t a one guy sport, it is a team sport. Soccer has a basic rules; First, we can’t touch the ball with our hand; only the goalkeeper can; Second, there are two cards; one is a yellow card, and the other is a red card; yellow card means if we got the yellow card warns us did another foul we will get another yellow card, if we get the second yellow card, the referee will give us a red card, and a red card means, we will not continue the match, and can’t play the next match. There’s two type of soccer; one of them is the normal soccer, and the other one is the beach soccer. Normal soccer we play in the stadium; the beach soccer, we will play at the beach with sand. We can’t start a match without our eleven players on our team. I started playing soccer when I was four years old. At seven, I started in a club; it was fun, especially when we enter the stadium. Soccer was created in China. Believe it or not, soccer is the famous sport in the United Kingdom now, but in 1394, their king banned soccer! Soccer isn’t a sport for me; it is a way of life.

Running down the field with the ball in my feet and my teammates shouting at me to pass the ball. My only thought was that I can score alone, I don 't need my teammates. I guess now looking back in the past when I was a kid I never realized how valuable teamwork is in soccer. Looking back I almost never played like I was on a team. I played like it was a one man show. Now that I 've understood why teamwork is important i 've changed the way I play in the game.
