Once getting to higher levels price canbecome an issue. Constantly travelingmore, finding a place to stay when you do travelor wearing out your old equipment so needingto replace it.

Overall soccer is not a very violent sport besides the slide tackles and hitting the other player when going in the ball. When following the rules there are few times when players play fair and are understanding, though that isn’t the case all the time. Few rules for tackling is keep your elbows down and go after the ball not the players feet. When slide tackling try and keep your foot down and once again go for the ball not the player.
Once reaching higher levels of soccer you have to be committed to playing. Not playing because your parents are making you play just for you have something to do or to stay active, you have to want it. Commitment to it you begin to thrive into a great player, always learning new skills and becoming faster and stronger. Learning new plays and when to put them to action. Enjoying when your spending time with your team and always looking forward and realizing that you have to give up some things to get where you want to be.
