Making it onto the varsity soccer team every year since I became a freshman, and being appointed Co-captain as a junior last year and continuing that role as captain this year as a senior is what I want to leave behind as my memoir. I went from being the worst player, to being a leader for the team, has made me value those who've stuck with me since the beginning, my family who has always been supportive, who worked hard to put a meal on my plate, kept me off the streets and taught me the importance of balance. A life plagued with hardships, and every reason for me to put my head down and give up, has made me not fear challenging conditions or ultimately being knocked down. In life I sometimes do get made fun of , and I sometimes get knocked down (both physically and emotionally.). However, day by day, I try to use these experiences to fuel my thirst to succeed.
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.
I have played soccer since I was about seven years old, and I have loved it ever since. I now play for the Sartell Middle School team and it’s so much fun! Some lessons that I have learned while playing soccer over the past five or so years are, working as a team always works better, and slow-playing it isn 't always the best idea. There are also many other conflicts while playing soccer, but a big one is that if I need to
Later, after winning the award I recognized that I did not only train harder for the award, but I worked harder because I had matured in my love for soccer and in my personal life to prove to myself that nothing is impossible. What I learned from this emotional scar is to not worry about what other people think. Instead, always stay focused and strong doing the things you enjoy; this has pushed me to not let anything stop me from achieving what I really
Sergio Aguero once said, “ I like tricks; I like to dazzle. Dribbling and leaving your opponent on his backside is what life is for. If I achieve what I want to, then I 'll mark a distinct era in football. I 'm the Che Guevara of modern soccer.” The career of a Soccer Coach is a amazing and hard working experience ,because of the physical and mental knowledge needed to play the sport.
My personal code of chivalry involves the best sport in the whole wide world which is soccer. In the aspects of soccer there are many ways of how this sport has changed me. This sport has really changed my life, there many values of this sport that continue on my whole life. These values would be to never give up, always be honest and responsible, and to always give it my all on whatever activity I’m doing.
My brother just started playing soccer. This was his first time and he didn’t know that much about it. I had played when I was little and I knew somethings about soccer so I figured I could teach him what I knew.
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
I have played soccer since I was six years old. I have loved soccer more than anything, and thought that one day I would go professional. My junior year of high school, when USF contacted me and offered me a scholarship to their institution to play soccer, it was the best day of my life- or at least
I am impassioned by sport, soccer to be exact, I believe it's one of the most influential mediums in the world, it holds massive cultural value. I grew in an atmosphere that exposed me to the sport early on, and since I've been addicted. It's made me cry from heartbreak and bawl out my eyes from immense happiness, soccer's beautiful, it's my passion and love. Through the years, having developed as a global citizen as well as having grown mentally and spiritually, my morals and ideals have flourished, and I've begun to see soccer as a way to reach the masses and spread my message, in an attempt to make the world a more positive and overall better place. A world where discrimination and prejudices aren't common, where ignorance is less severe,
Her accomplishments make everyone want to work hard and be the best they can(Stenson, T. 2015). Personally Carli Lloyd has been a hero to me. She has been a great person to look up to and it is good to watch her play. She has affected many soccer players around the world and has been a very good influence(Hayes, G.2015). Additionally she has taken the time out of her day to go around the U.S. talking to kids and giving powerful speeches.
After comparing and contrasting Tom Brady and Mia Hamm, I think I prefer Mia Hamm because of her mental toughness and accomplishments to her career and lifetime as a professional soccer player. From the consistency of winning football games and being the national spotlight for years to the Olympic gold medals as an elite soccer player, both Brady and Hamm have proven to be iconic models for the aspiring generation of athletes. Nowadays, playing a sport comes with
The recommended by the library, autobiographical book, The Keeper, written by Tim Howard captures the incredible story of current United States Men’s National Team goalie and his rise to stardom. This book shows the determination and fearlessness Tim Howard resembled throughout his soccer career from a young age to now. He overcame tons of adversity, including suffering from Tourette Syndrome (TS), growing up in a rough part of downtown New Jersey, and dealing with divorced parents. The setting of this book follows Tim Howard on his soccer journey. The setting starts in New Jersey where he grew up and began his soccer career all the way up to playing for the New Jersey MLS team, then to the United Kingdom where he played for club teams, such as Manchester United and Everton.
I believe that the awards I have won through my participation in golf, basketball, and track exemplify my passion and drive to do my best. While trophies and certificates are fun to receive, they all too soon gather dust and are forgotten. What I will never forget are the lessons I learned through my involvement in high school sports. At the very least, high school sports have prepared me for my future at The Ohio State University where I plan to major in Social and Behavioral Sciences. This degree will be an integral part of achieving my ultimate goal of one day becoming a licensed Speech Pathologist.
