I started playing soccer when I was four years old. At the time I had a lot of problems. To name a few, I was bad at working with others, I was a sore loser, and I did not handle pain or disappointment well. When I started to play soccer I had a low self esteem and was terribly shy. Going up and talking to people was not on my list of things to do. This made it pretty hard for me to fit in with all the other kids and make friends. It was hard to enjoy playing soccer when I felt as though I had no friends on the team. My parents noticed my dislike in the sport, but urged me to keep playing anyway.
I continued to play soccer from elementary school all the way up to high school. I was an above average player, but definitely nothing spectacular. I could run fast, handle the ball well, and had decent power in my leg. In spite of all my good attributes, I always struggled with 50-50 balls.
Soccer, is more than a sport and more than a hobby, soccer is life! Soccer is the king of sports all over the world. It's my childhood hobby, I have been playing soccer since I was 3 years old. My mother says that I've always like kicking the ball into the net. Since then soccer has always been my hobby and my lifestyle.
Growing up in El Salvador, soccer was a sport that significantly impacted my childhood. My cousins and uncles taught me how to play soccer, as well as various techniques that would later benefit me on the soccer field. At the age of seven I started to play for one of most well-known soccer clubs in El Salvador. Practicing twenty three hours a week was really paying off, as I could see in my medal and trophy gain. Not only did they represent my accomplishments, but they also gave joy to my teammates, community, and family because they were the people who encouraged me to give my best. Playing soccer was also a way to release stress because when my family was going through hardships, it was easier for me to let all of my negative energy on the
The definition of soccer: “A game played by two teams of eleven players with a round ball that may not be touched with the hands or arms during play except by the goalkeepers. The object of the game is to score goals by kicking or heading the ball into the opponent 's ' goal.” When I think about the thing I’m most passionate about, soccer pops into my head right away. Soccer represents more than just a game to me. The sport gives me an outlet distract me from the real world, it taught me to overcome a battle that shaped my character, and my teammates bring out the best in me.
Soccer is a culture in where I was literally born into. Playing since I was six years old I grew up learning every position of the sport. I was playing against the best in my school and all the way to the best in the state and even nation. IT showed me a lot of values and I know it will show me more as I grow up. This is an everyday thing in my life, but many others have their own culture and social structure where they learn a lot of values. The main point I believe is learning those values because that is what will make our social society
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
Soccer has guided me in many ways to become the person I am. Especially in high school, the sport has showed me how to be much more cooperative and open with others. Before high school, I isolated myself from others and had only a few close friends. Rather than being a sociable, I acted as though I was the only person in the world and had the outlook that as long as I do what is right individually, there is no need for me to work with others. This outlook changed when I joined the soccer team at Holy Spirit, my high school. With the way soccer is at the high school level, I had no choice but to cooperate and associate my selves with others. Once on the field, instead of introducing myself as "me" I had to introduce myself as a part of the team. You win as a team and you lose as a team. Sometimes I wanted to drive to games myself, and I was not allowed to because we are supposed to travel together and it would be wrong to the team for me to separate myself from the group.
Soccer is an attention-grabbing sport and it can be easily played. All you need are shoes and a soccer ball. Other sports you would need a hoop or a field and soccer is more easily played. There are hundreds of soccer stadiums in Europe and other nations of the world.
Everybody has different hobbies that he or she would like to do for fun or relaxation. They can be either physical activities like jogging, football, swimming, skateboarding… or mental activities like reading, watching movies, playing computers… and depend on each personality. For me, soccer is my hobby because it’s part of my life and I cannot live without it.
