# Describe an outdoor sport you played for the first time
You should say:
- what it is
- when you first played
- how you learned to play the sport
- and how you felt about the sport
I’m going to tell you about my true love: soccer. I’ve been playing for my entire life. I would say it’s my number one passion. I’ve even gone as far as to pursue a career in this field! I’m now a football coach for an adult’s league, as well as my son’s.
I first kicked around a soccer ball when I was about three years old if I remember correctly. My father was an avid (regular; expert) soccer player, so quickly wanted to make me passionate about his game at a young age. He used to take me a local park in our city until dark to share his skills with me when I was about 5-6 years old. Moreover, we would always kick around a ball at home, but mostly wasting time (playing) rather than playing for real. Shortly after, I joined a league, which he coached. This is one of the fondest memories I have with my father, who has since passed.
Apart from this, we would always watch soccer together as a family for as long as I can remember. I can recall watching the moves of the players in the games and trying to imitate them, which further helped me learn more skill.
I’ve adored the sport since I was first introduced to it. However, sometimes, it was challenging to balance my school work with my passion for soccer, as I tended to neglect my homework due to soccer practice. However, all in all, soccer has taught me a sense of discipline, team-work, and was away for my family and me to bond (have a close relationship).
