Favorite sport: Soccer When I was in the third grade, I signed up to start playing soccer at my local park in Lakeland, FL. I was excited about this not only because it looked fun,but because all my friends were playing too. During the season, we had a game every Saturday morning or afternoon for about 4 months. I continued playing soccer all thru school and up until I graduated in 2004. Here are a couple of reasons why soccer has become my favorite sport.
I trialled for Northern Tigers and in the first trial I was signed. I have scored 12 goals in 22 matches for my new club (including trial matches) and consider this my breakthrough season as I have shown the potential I never knew I had. My coach Jason Eager, who is also First Grade Coach of the club, has shown belief in my own personal ability and has moved me to the right/left wing in our 4-3-3 formation. Jason has said that he would bet on me beating any defender 1 v 1 and that I am one of the best wingers in the league. This feedback has informed me that I am progressing well as a footballer.
Moreover, I will share some of the important moments I have had with the team, and some of our special language which you will not find anywhere but in a soccer community. My very beginning was when I was walking in the hallway at the school, I found some flyers on the wall about soccer training at 5:00 pm that day. I started to ask about the location and if there is a specific color that I have to wear and so on. I went to the training, but I was 2 minutes, even though it's just 2 minutes I had to do a punishment which was taking a full run around the field twice, couple of pushups, and not playing in the first round. I thought that this punishment is for the new members but I found out that even the ones who have been there for a while got the same punishment as me when they came late.
When I was young, there was a professional soccer player named Luu Dinh Tuan and he was 17 years old. He was a well known soccer player who commanded a big paycheck and lots of respect from the people in my country. He had nice cars, fancy clothes and the biggest house in the land. His name was always on the front page of the town newspaper and the sport magazines. I remembered one time Mr. Luu came to my class and spoke to us about how to become a good soccer player.
He has played on the Cameroon national team since he started his professional career. He has scored a career total of 217 goals. He is a great player, but Pele has him beat by more than 1,000 goals. (10 Best African Soccer Players of All Time) Soccer has been around long enough to have a “history”. Soccer was invented in China in 1004 A.D. During the Han Dynasty, there is evidence that the children dribbled leather balls with their feet in the streets.
Or a player who won times best player four times in a row? Messi is the best example of a soccer player. Early Career Messi’s full name is Lionel Andre’s Messi. He was born 24 June 1987 in Rosano, Santa fe Argentina. To parents Jorge and Celia.Started playing soccer at the age of five.
I won a medal in floor and this first got me going with competition. This all started my love for sports. When I went to elementary school I started doing dance since in some ways it was like gymnastics. It was run by the school and it was once a week. I started out in ballet then the next 2 years did ballet and tap, in 4th and 5th grade I did jazz and tap and my last year I did hip hop.
The knowledge I have gained from being a part of the athletic community is very vast and I would argue that is why I am a member of the discourse community. I earned my first gold medal when I was in the second grade for winning the 50 yard dash. That was a day that I will never forget. Winning that race motivated me to participate in sports more often and take keen interest in learning more about the athletic community. Since then, I learned how to train for many different sports my school offered.
He was the captain of the team and also played as a mid-fielder. Guardiola played for Barcelona F.C. for 11 seasons, during which time they won every soccer title they competed. By the age of 20, Guardiola had already built some great leadership skills. For example, he had tremendous determination and desire to accomplish goals.
When I arrived at the tryouts, I met the coach and he put me on a team to scrimmage. I was raring to go and prove to the coach, the world, and myself that I was worthy to participate on this soccer team. Three weeks later I raced to the athletics board to see if I had made the team. The excitement and suspense inside of me suddenly dropped. I had not made it.
