I have been playing soccer since before I could even walk. In fact, I joined my first soccer team at the age of five. Soccer is something I have always loved and been passionate about. When I was on the co-ed recreation league teams I was one of the only girls on my team, so I had to compete with boys who doubted me and thought I was weak. I worked hard during practice and out of practice to become better and, eventually, I became more aggressive than them.
The most enjoyable part was that I felt as if I had freedom. I only ever played this game with my close neighbors, being that it involved running around in the community. It was a very big part of my friend group because, it is what brought us together every weekend. - Adolescents: When playing competitive games, such as soccer, I was taught how to play this game through my dad when I was younger. The most enjoyable part of the game was the feeling of scoring a goal.
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.
My arms shot up in the air as the small crowd wailed and shouted. As we ran around with smiles on our faces and achievements on our mind, we took in the fact that we finally scored our first goal of the season. I started playing on a soccer team when I was around seven, and it’s been my favorite sport ever since. It’s when I started high school that I realized soccer wasn’t as meaningful to the small school as I hoped it would be. It turned out Mendocino hadn’t had a girls soccer team for around 4 years and that was quite a discouraging piece of information.
Texas baseball can be very exciting, especially as a high school junior fighting for a starting spot. Working on getting in shape, mastering the basics of the game, and then making it routine. It all felt so right, as if I was destined to have a good year, except my future beheld failure. It was this failure that would make me a better player in the near future. I believed that I worked hard; giving multiple hours a day to the game I love.
I hindered greatly from having confidence of myself which ultimately led me to have a indifferent beginning to my high school career. Following that year I made sure every season returning to soccer in the fall, that all freshman and new players were welcomed and felt like this team was a group of people they could count on no matter
Jack is the character who I felt like I was most like. His actions portray him as a “make the best out of every situation” kind of person and I feel that’s most like me. Jack is a teenage boy that lives in Spruce Harbor. He likes to play soccer (Kline 4). Like Jack, I play for soccer for my high school team.
I see each night how hard he studies and how important his grades are to him. His hard work paid off and he will be attending the Ohio State University next fall with the goal of becoming an orthopedic surgeon. This has made me want to take my studies seriously and reach for my dreams. Athletically, he played soccer all four years at STVM and this season was named captain of the varsity soccer team. I attended every game and watched first-hand the time and effort he dedicated to the sport, how hard he played, how personal he took each loss, and how he even overcame injury.
Soccer There once was a soccer game. It was going to be the other team that wins because the other team was in the lead and they just pushed so we get a free kick in the 18 box. I was the one taking the shot and it went in the goal and then everybody was comparing the ball to the goalie. Then there was a DQ because we were in Caro so we stopped and got dinner and then went home to eat and go to sleep and rest for the next day for school. That day at school I was happy because our team had won by 1 more point.
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.
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.
It was nearing the end of the game and we were winning 4-0. As we were heading for the goal on another break away, the opposing team kicked it out of bounds by the goal. My sister Bailey, who is also on the team, set the ball up for a corner kick. Her kick was a beautiful, high, hard drive to the front of the box. I remember thinking of my trainer’s words, “Anything is possible”.
