Among many others who might have been shy to join new school was I, the one who stood at the back of the classroom and spoke of nothing. Later, that same day when I went to the playground I witnessed one of the most amazing game I had ever seen, Netball. Netball, is an European version of Basketball where you pass the ball among your team mates rather than dribbling. This game was something that I got instantly connected to at a very young age. Because of the limited amount of team members required, 7, few got a chance to join the team, and one of those luckily girls was me. The hard level of intensity required from me was a difficult challenge that I had accepted at that moment, but it was something I was willing to practice through practicing on those cold morning or the humid afternoons, my teammates and I were up for the challenge. Six months later, it had become a part of my life and at that moment I was so good at the game that I was hoping on becoming the Goal Defender for one of the best teams in Kenya.

Hundreds of millions of people around the world play or watch soccer. There are more than one hundred and fifty professional leagues in the world for soccer. While America has one major soccer league in the country Europe has a handful. Soccer is becoming more popular in America, but is far from having the popularity similar to overseas. Soccer has progressed in America from the North American Soccer League to Major League Soccer. The fact is, soccer overseas has had more time to grow and develop. In time, the MLS can become a powerhouse for soccer in the world alongside the premier leagues.Eventually, the MLS will compete with the pace, shots, and skills observed on and off the ball.

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” This is a quote by Pele that demonstrates soccer in so many ways.

Making a decision isn’t always easy depending on how many people are in the group and if there is any conflict within the group. The basic aspects of a group include roles, status, norms and cohesiveness but when viewing my soccer team I see only certain obvious aspects being present. When thinking about the process in which we, as a group have to make the decision of where to stop for food after an away game, it is obvious that many theories and/or topics can be applied. These theories or topics include evaluation apprehension, social decision schemas, authentic dissent and conflict. The four subjects listed above help explain how a group can come to a decision together.
A buzz circled the stadium, gleaming lights shined brightly onto the pitch, and a banner flowed over a section of fans. The players marched out of the tunnel as the stadium erupted with a roar. This is the future sport of America, soccer. In the coming years, soccer will be comparable in popularity to any league in the world. Traditional American sports fans will pass soccer off as boring because of its continuous play and low scoring games. I would advise anyone that has these thoughts to experience a soccer game in person, an unrivaled experience. The history of soccer is rich, mix this with the growing popularity of the sport in America and we have a winning formula that can only bring success to America.
