I enjoy playing soccer and I hope to continue playing for the rest of my life. It’s a fun sport that requires skill, and mental and physical strength.
!” All I remember was all the girls on my team screaming and running towards me. Luckily, I was at the right place at the right time and headed the ball into the net. I scored the winning goal and it felt amazing. We won the championship! Over the years, soccer has changed me as a person.
I have learned more skills than soccer, such as teamwork and communication skills. I have learned that it's good to broaden one's horizon by meeting and becoming friends with people from other schools and communities. I'm looking forward to the soccer district and regional, and we hope we qualify for the state championship.
Jennifer Watson was a member of the Central Jersey Group Two High School Championship soccer team. She was able to provide valuable insight into the development of an effective team. Many of her views expressed to me in her interview paralleled concepts in the Robbins and Hunsaker text. Jennifer felt she had an effective coach for many reasons, the first of which was her coach's constant support. "An effective coach is definitely a person of authority, but is also someone who cares about, and is there for the individual players," she said.

Time management was another import lesson that I learned. Being a student an athlete taught me how to balance your time between classes and soccer. I was told numerous times by my coach that I was a student before anything else. I learned that I had to make sacrifices in order to maintain a good GPA while being successful on the field.

Multiple times when I was feeling my soccer skills weren’t up to par and I wasn’t good enough, my coaches consistently encouraged to keep practicing and training myself to become a better player. They didn’t let me quit because they knew I could become better if I gave it my all.

My senior year was the first time my school had a soccer program, and I along with two other girls was captains. As we all know, when a group of girls come together, the drama comes too. All three of the captains had to work together and show the girls that if we wanted this program to be a success and grow, they had to work together as well. It was hard at first, but when we encouraged everyone, it worked out better than expected in the end. Also, in my business class, we had a lot of projects that were mostly group projects.
