My U-10 Girls Soccer Team

Satisfactory Essays
The experience I want to tell you about today is when my U-10 (ages 8-9) girls soccer team that I coached won the Championship game. Throughout the soccer season we had practice twice a week for 12 weeks and games every saturday morning for eight weeks. At the first few practices I learned a little bit about each player and found out whether they had played soccer before or not. With every practice and game our team became better and better. We actually lost all of our games before tournaments. Through coaching these girls though I learned that the more we got to know each other and learn each other's strengths and weaknesses the more we became a well developed team. I also began to see who did and did not get along with each other all the

    NOCO United Soccer Academy 1) In my opinion I don’t think that this is a good idea to focus on this group of the over 14 year old kids because he already has a large market with the kids around 11 to 14yo. This is better to focus on the under 10 year old kids (6-10yo) because he will have them at least for 4 years more. They are more potential customers and they are still few in its program from now, which is interesting and primordial to develop. There is a lot to do about this target. 2) One…

    This year my soccer team had a record of 2-8-1. It was very difficult for us as a team to stay strong after losing so many games, especially myself, but we kept playing. Despite losing the first eight games of our season, I maintained a positive attitude and kept things in perspective. Each loss strengthened our team and made us became better not only as a team, but individuals. During one of our away games, I injured myself which caused me to be out the rest of the season. It was hard for me to…

    “Anthony, are you going to try out for East Carolina’s Soccer Team?”, asked my coach. I replied, “I was going to, but, unfortunately, they got rid of their soccer team a few years ago.” I played soccer all my life and know many great soccer players that attend East Carolina University. I am writing this to the Athletic Directors at ECU, hopefully in an attempt to bring the ECU Men's Soccer Team back. Many problems that motivated the eviction of the team changed, such as, low budget, minimum popularity…

    before the first soccer game of the season, I was eating a protein bar and watching some vines on youtube. It was about 8:30 pm, I decided to go take a good shower. When I was done I got ready for bed. Then I dreamed. It was a tie game 2-2. We were looking pretty rough, every player on our team looked exhausted. I was put on the right wing looking for an open opportunity at goal. We didn’t have much luck the other team kept playing the ball so well. Then I found a gap and our team passed the ball…

    Service is a mindset. I work at Shady Grove and try to see my job as a way to serve others. I greet all customers with a smile and treat them with dignity; I am amazed to see the difference it makes in someone’s day. However, I don’t always see the positive outcome of a simple smile. Numerous times, I have had been responded to with a grimace or no expression at all. I know that the people might think I am bizarre for smiling for no particular reason, but I try to look at the effects and realize…

    My feet pounded against the ground and sweat beaded down my forehead as I chased after the intruder. All efforts seemed hopeless, but I managed to catch up and tackle her to the ground. As I stood and regained my balance, I heard the worst noise a person in that situation could possibly hear: the blow of a whistle. The referee of our soccer game called a foul against me in the most unfortunate place on the field, and the other team was awarded a penalty kick that resulted in a goal against my team…

    horizon, crept over and snagged my mom’s old mac laptop of the small cream nightstand. I opened it and let the harsh blue light illuminate my dark room, not expecting the glow to temporarily blind me. I quickly shut my eyes and fumbled around the keyboard until I had adjusted the brightness, and refocused onto the task at hand. Three days prior I had completed try-outs for my soccer team and today the results would be posted at 6. My alarm clock lay precariously next to my bed reading 5:45. After four…

    When I was ten years old I tried out for my local travel soccer team. I did not expect to make it, but by some stroke of luck I did. I started playing and it was not what I was expecting. In the past I averaged a hat trick every game, but travel soccer was a lot different. I started playing defense, but that might be an overstatement, because I did not get a whole lot of minutes. I knew that if I wanted to play more I was going to have to put in more work outside of practice. I started practicing…
