SBC4 – Soccer

I spent a long time thinking about a topic that I loved. I have so many hobbies that it was pretty hard to chose, but I finally decided to write on Soccer.  Soccer is my favorite sport, and I don’t have a lot of occasions of playing it as I don’t have a garden and most of the people in my school like to play Basketball and Volleyball. My still school still has a soccer team, and our first training was on Saturday November 4th, the day before I write this post. The soccer training is two hours long, and is pretty tiring considering we are under the sun all the time.

My favorite soccer team is Arsenal, which is a team coming from London. Even though they are portrayed as a bad team by most of my classmates, I still support them. My favorite players are Mesut Özil and Alexis Sanchez. I like them because of their style of playing. They are both very talented players and are capable of scoring beautiful goals.

The last thing I want to talk about is WAISAL, here is the link to their website if you want to check it out. WAISAL stands for West African International Schools Activities League. There is one WAISAL for each sport, and it is a competition that takes place once a year for each sport. Volleyball WAISAL already took place, and Swimming WAISAL is soon. I’m talking about it because I do trainings for High School soccer, and Soccer WAISAL is in April. It takes place at LCS, Lincoln Community School, which the International School in Accra, Ghana.

    G’day Tristan,
    So if you are chosen for Soccer WAISAL, do you fly to Accra? Are you then looked after by families there?

      Hi Miss W., Thanks for replying.
      Yes, if I’m chosen, I go with the team until Accra. I don’t know where we sleep when we arrive there, as I never actually went to WAISAL, I’ll try to get more information about it.

      Hey Miss W.,

      I got more information on how WAISAL works, and the answer to your second question is yes. We are looked after by families that are in Accra. But taking into account that it is high school soccer and that I’m in ninth grade only, I don’t have a lot of chances of going to Accra this year.
