I’m sorry I haven’t posted this week. School started and I’ve been very busy with school and practice.
We do a four class per semester system so in essence I take a full years’ worth of class in half a school year. The system has its plusses and minuses. Having the class for 2 hours versus 1 hour isn’t much of a difference so it’s nice to get a class out of the way quicker.
So I’ve been down and dirty the hour I’ve been awake looking at scholarship sites.
I’ve found Chegg.com and was recommeded to try fastweb.com. I then stumbled on Unigo.com and they have some pretty crazy scholarships!
Just wanted to quickly shoot y’all an update.
I am up to my eyeballs in training and trying to learn my job. I’m an attacking midfielder, or the “playmaker” as Coach Bob calls me. Love you, Coach… You stress me out though!! I just want to step back and say that the term “playmaker” puts a 500lb gorilla on my back! Okay, enough of me complaining… I’ve been grinding my skills for weeks!
Here’s my routine:
We’ve been training for two weeks now and we already have 3 injured girls. I’ve done a little research and wanted to write something quick about what I’ve noticed and what I’ve read.
First and foremost, there is such a thing called Detraining. I’ve never heard of this before today but the information I read seems legit and from many sites. Here’s what I read…
Periods of time greater than four weeks can start to be seen in various components of a player’s physical fitness. This is seen in sprints, strength, body fat, and even in flexibility.
So does that mean that our girls are getting injured from not being as flexible? Could be, but this isn’t the main reason. It’s actually all of the above.
So my amazing coach is hot and heavy on how we all need to be prepared for the future and learn squad numbers. This was after some convincing and a lot of confusion! Actually, I can’t express how confused I was at first but I finally seem to be getting a handle on it.
Welcome to my new website, The Star Center! This site will document my senior year before college, my journey to getting accepted into a good school, and hopefully a scholarship. All in pursuit to becoming a great player.
My hero is Carli Lloyd, I love juggling, and hate defense. Thanks for stopping by and so sad about our Olympic girls losing!
By for now,
