Soccer on Repeat [Personal Column]

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Every. Single. Week.

It feels like a never ending cycle although I do cherish those Tuesdays. I have been playing soccer since I was 3 years old and have played at three different soccer clubs. Soccer has always been a huge part of my life, it’s consumed most weekends, week days, and most any free time I have.

I love playing soccer and I love the game, but at times soccer turns into a chore rather than something I choose to do. It’s hard to choose between going to practice and traveling for a game rather than going to the high school football game with your friends when everyone else is there.

Playing soccer can be amazing at times and terrible at other times. It’s the best feeling when you play amazing and do great and terrible when you play bad and have to deal with coaches and parents. The hardest part of soccer for me is not the playing part, it’s the showing up and wanting to be there six days a week. I play in the ECNL , which basically is where I travel all around the country to play soccer. It can be really awesome at times like when I get to see a ton of places and states, but in other ways it’s terrible because it makes me miss home and all my friends.

When it comes to sports, you have to have a healthy balance with it, you need breaks and time to get away from it. During the winter and the summer I get two months off and that does wonders for me, it actually makes me miss the game.

Overall, soccer can be a place where I can go to get away from my problems, but it also can be my biggest problem.
