I suppose now that I have started training, it’d be best to keep track of this stuff:)
I have started training twice a week at my university. Nothing too specific, just getting into the groove, learning proper techniques, and learning some lingo from this website and my training instructor (Herb).
My passion lies on the soccer pitch, I’ve played my entire life and can never get enough:) I play fullback or midfield. I’ve played in the Super Y league (which is a league just below provincial) and I tried out for the provincial team but didn’t break through all of the vancouver talent! I currently play in the mens league , and train on and off with the University of British Columbia squad (UBCO). I actually played volleyball this year instead…what was i thinking! Anyways, I’m always willing to try harder and push further when it comes to any sport, but i become especially motivated by soccer. So here I am, somewhat worried about being 19 now, and only just starting to train harder and more seriously than I ever have before, wish I coulda started just a few years back But this is exactly what I’ve been looking for, a knowledgable trainer and some extra motivation to really push me to the next level. I feel this website is a brilliant way to start my new lifestyle, keep track of my program, and recieve some criticism along the way, pls feel free to suggest or comment on any part of my journal:)
I can’t wait to hit the pitch this season and more or less, just prove to myself that I can become an even better footballer and maybe catch someones attention along the way as well
