Let me give some background information. I started playing soccer when I was five and currently I'm fifteen. I have always played as GK(Goalie). I currently play GK for my high school team but I want to quit. After playing ten years of soccer it starts to lose it's enjoyment. Plus I do a program at my school where I go to a completely different building to prepare to join the military. That lasts all day and I never see or talk to any of my teammates(Not like I'm friends with them anyway). Whenever I go to practice they talk about what happened that day at school and since I don't go there I have no idea what they are talking about. I'm usually silent at practice and just do what I need to do. But since I play a vital role on our team its hard deciding if I want to quit or not. I'm one of the three Gk on the team and it would be a burden on the coaches to find and train a new GK.(One GK for Freshman, One for JV, and One for Varsity) I'm just bored of the sport now. I just want to come home after school and chill out, not go to practice everyday. I just don't know how to tell my Mom or Coaches. I feel like I would be letting the coaches down because they put so much time into training me. Overall I feel out of place there and I'm very bored of the sport. What should I do?
I know what it's like to be juggling with difficult decisions. It's always a "on one hand this, but on the other hand there's that" kind of thing. All I can tell you is to just do what your gut tells you. Deep down, what do you REALLY want?
Soccer is a great sport man, but if you really feel out of place in the team, it would probably be best to quit. You're meant to enjoy what you're doing, and do it with some mates, not feel out of place and not have fun.
