Should i quit ?

Hi im 14 im on my schools JV soccer team. My mom & dad think i should, but im not sure. Today in practice i was debating on myself if i should quit or keep going. Practice was too harsh we ran around the whole school and i was struggling to keep up. Plus i got mistaken for a troublemaker and had to run until he decided i should stop. By then My legs where shaking & i could barley keep my self on my feet, and now i have the worst back pain. I had to walk home & i literally cried a bit of how much it hurts. I dont know if the coach is just to commited on winning or if im not used to it. Should i quit Soccer?

No, it was like that for me at basic training. I couldn't do 500 push ups every day and put up with getting smoked because of other people's stupidity or run two miles every day, but now that's nothing for me because I kept going. Like they always say, what doesn't kill you makes you stonger, pretty soon that will be easy for you

No. Talk to your coach. Tell him you have back problems. Lie. :) He will go easy. If he doesn't then quit. I love soccer. But we don't run around the whole school. Good Luck :)

:) Yup. Wow. How old is he? Tell your brother about how you feel during P.E. Also go to the doctor tell the doctor to write you a note. Also if he thinks yea right she doesn't have back problems. Tell your bro to lie. :) More Luck :)

Why did you join the soccer team? because you love it, right? Never give up on something you love. Do the best you can and you'll strive for excellence.

I joined bc my brother played soccer for all his highchool years so i tought it would be fun to try out, so i could make friends & stay in shape, for freshman year. Right now its a Love/Hate relationship with soccer lol

In my opinion, I don't think you should play because YOUR brother played it. Do you and play what makes YOU happy. You can still make friends playing other sports. (Volleyball, Tennis, Basketball.) ANYTHING [:

Up to you. I agree with Bass4ever. I've done the same stuff. I'm inclined to say "suck it up" (sorry), but I'm older than you, and I've seen much rougher stuff than soccer practice. (And I LOVE soccer, so I practiced at a much harder Varsity level). Like I said, it's up to you to decide if the fight is worth it.

I wouldn't quit. Talk to your coach and tell him that you might have pushed it too hard and you have to let your body adjust before you can successfully do everything he's asking of you.
