From an early age I always knew I would be playing soccer my whole life. My dad showed me the ropes of how to play and got me interested right away. By the age of three I had started playing, and to this day I have not stopped. Soccer has been a huge part of my life and I don’t know where I would be today if I never played. I met some amazing people playing soccer including my coaches who encouraged me and told me never to give up as well as my teammates who became my friends and were always there for me.
At this age, it was an important bonding tool between us two because it was the only thing that we could do just the two of us. The second reason was that my friends were taking it up at the same time. We all decided to try it together so it was a learning experience for all of us. We had a lot of fun doing it and I have many humorous memories from our early days. I stuck with team sports as my emphasis as I joined softball teams, and played tackle and flag football as well.
I started to work really hard at improving my skills. Before I knew it, I was starting varsity and took the spot from a senior who was playing all his life. Since then, I have feel in love with soccer. I now play indoor, outdoor, and futsal soccer five times a week. Soccer requires skill, physical ability, and mental strength.
All summer we worked on my technique and accuracy. The first week of my sophomore football season the coaches took immediate notice to my improvement, I was then offered the opportunity to try out for the varsity by the head coach. I was very excited but also nervous at the same time, this was like a dream come true. My high school has a very rich tradition for football, and for a sophomore to play at the varsity level is rare. So the following week I worked out with the varsity and made the team.
It occasionally disappointed me when our team would have a small fan turn out because the football team had a conflicting game, but I was still more than content to be playing soccer. By the time I was a senior our soccer team was considerably more competitive than the football team and throughout my four years of high school I saw the crowd grow every season. I could see the sport growing in my town and it brought me great joy seeing people start to appreciate the sport I had chosen from a young
We practiced twice a week in the spring and fall and had games every weekend. We also attended tournaments in the summer. My favorite was always the Canton Invitational down in Canton, Michigan. Besides loving to play the games that we had all weekend, I loved hanging out and meeting all of the other kids that had my same interest....SOCCER! i was on another TBAYS rec team with some friends in eighth grade but then in ninth grade it was time to try out for the big shebang...the high school team.
I came to the conclusion that I should play soccer considering it was one I was strongest at. I also enjoyed soccer more than the other sports I had played because it was a tough sport, which was a challenge to me. During the years I played high school soccer I made a decision in which when I look back on, I think I could have handled differently. I never spoke up. I would just do what I was told to do.
When tryouts started, it was explained to all of us that the coaches would run drills in order to gauge our individual skills, and then place us in specific position groups. After the drills, which I did exceptionally well in, Coach Jones placed me in the receivers group. He told me that I was extremely fast, and that I would make a good receiver. It felt so good, not only making the team, but being singled out by Coach Jones as one of the better players on the squad. Throughout the next couple of weeks, the Mandalay Wolverines held football practice every day after school from 2:45 until 5:00.
Marucci resigned. However, my senior year was the most memorable soccer season yet. My father and Mrs. Randall were the co-head coaches. I couldn’t have been any happier. Finally my father was officially my coach again.
Another reason why is that it hold teenagers and kids cannibal like school, school work, leadership and a lot more to come. and that's why sports in the U.S are very popularity to play and have kids to do. A lot of people do sports because they see it all the time. also people talk about sports every single day because that's all they see. sports in the U.S are also very popular because it's something everywhere about sports like the stores, gym, day care, schools and more, that's why sports are really popular everywhere around the world.
