Sport means something different to each one of us. For some it means getting fitter, for some it means spending time with old friends and for some it means forming new friendships. We’d love to share with you what football means to one of the players playing in our Women’s team.

I love soccer and nothing can take me away from it not even my injured ankle????????. I like soccer because there is so much beauty in it. But also when I go to soccer practice and when we have a game, I forget about all of the bad things that happened to me and my personal life. It also takes my mind off stress and drama.

A lot of sports are competitive, but that’s why I like soccer. It can get a bit out of control. For instance, a competitive team is probably really aggressive. But It’s not about being aggressive though, it’s about the tactics. Tactical awareness largely refers to a soccer player having the ability to make effective decisions during a soccer game. I practice soccer tactics by using group drills that work on skills and forcing players to make decisions quickly in game-like situations. I’m still learning????????????

Soccer I think is the most energetic sport ever. Soccer is amazing to me. it takes a lot more skill than you think. I love running, it’s my obsession. That’s what makes soccer the greatest sport ever to me. The skill in soccer takes along time to master. I don’t even think you can master soccer. There are so many new things I learn at practice every day. The skill you need to play soccer it’s just over the top. When you first play soccer, like first ever in your life your thinking wow, this is a lot more tricky than I thought it would be. I know that’s what I was thinking when I first played.

Another reason why I love soccer is because it takes a lot of team effort. So much you wouldn’t even imagine. If one person doesn’t try on the team or doesn’t give 110% your whole team loses. There is no I in team and that was the first thing I learned during my soccer career this year. Team effort is what I love, because you have to work with your team and communicate with every one to take the ball up the field and score. My coach always says; score early and give it your all in the first 10 min. And that’s true. He says that every day before a game. He also says team effort is what scores the goals… unity is such a important aspect of football believe it or not……. I have such an amazing team and I love everyone of them….????????????????????

This is why we love what we’re doing at Balga SC. We love the impact sport can make on our players and the relationships that are being created.
