How Soccer Changed My Life
It was in October of 2006 when I played my first soccer game. it was my first time playing on a pitch in front of a ton of people, It was a very exciting but scary moment because I didn’t know whats gonna happen or what to do. I played my best. The game went on to full time, we drew 1-1 at the end, I played the full 90 minutes, now it’s time for penalty shootout, I recall a time when I missed in a penalty shootout. I felt like I had let my team down. I was so mad and upset. And yet I picked myself back up and practiced my shot for the next three weeks when we had a game against one of the top teams in the league. The day of the game, we went to OT penalty shootout again, against one of the best teams in the league , And I had to participate in the penalty shootout for three weeks straight, I told myself that I can’t miss, I don’t want to let my team down. I went on scoring the winning penalty kick for my team, I was so happy, truly one of the best days of my life.
Soccer has been my passion ever since I was a little kid. I grew up around people that play soccer professionally, I even had a soccer ball in my room back home in Jamaica, I would wake up and do keep ups and pass around every morning. Soccer has in many ways been my outlet, my escape from the stresses of school and life in general. Soccer has taught me so many wonderful, powerful lessons like never giving up and always believing in myself. There was this one time we were playing against one of the top teams in the competition, I play striker so my job is to score goals, so I was running to the goal with the ball and one of the defender slide tackle me and I broke my foot, I thought I was never going to be able to play soccer again but I recovered and was able to play again.
However, for me, time spent on the soccer field is time spent for self reflection and amelioration. I have learned a lot about myself through playing soccer. Before I began playing soccer I was not a fan of team activities. Now I like teamwork and I thoroughly enjoy being a part of something bigger than myself. This has also translated into my school work; I am better at working in groups for projects and assignments. Through soccer I have learned that I am a competitive person. I do not always have to win, but when there is competition I try my best to do so. I think it is important to present myself well, because every opportunity is an opportunity to get better and show others what an asset I could be.
I tried out for my school’s varsity team, and made it. When I tried out I never knew that I had found my passion in soccer again. Since then, soccer has been a tremendous outlet for me, and has had great health benefits as well. I cannot imagine my life without soccer. Being on the soccer field provides me with satisfaction that I have experienced no other place.
