I  Love Kicking Balls

I used to watch from the side lines while my friends played like stars. An immigrant family, sports was not on our financial radar. I’d admire the colourful jerseys, the cleats and skills from afar. 

I longed to play and always imagined myself dramatically running past the defence. I would make soccer balls out of aluminum and play by myself.  I imagined the colour of my cleats gleaming green against the turf grass. I would practice my running, I wanted to be really fast. 

Finally the day came where I got to play for fun. The boys were mean so I shrunk myself playing a position I knew for me wasn’t the one. I realized my confidence was so low. I doubted that I could ever even score a goal. And so I removed myself and played other sports.

That’s until I found the Spartan cohorts. The league was so welcoming and Teo was the best. 

They encouraged me and cheered for me until I once again found my zest. I grew into a forward, I started scoring goals and making moves. But most importantly I found a supportive, crazy fun place where regardless of the score I couldn’t lose. 

Soccer became my happy place above all.

And so I let loose and never since have I stopped kicking balls.


2nd Place: Nick Mac Adam
Oh soccer, my heart beats for thee,
Your graceful moves and beauty, I can see,
With every dribble and each perfect pass,
I am enamored, forever to last.
The roar of the crowd, the excitement in the air,
The thrill of the chase, without a care,
The rush of adrenaline, with every score,
I am in love, forever more.
Your field, my darling, a canvas so green,
With every play, a masterpiece unseen,
The way you bring people together, with one goal,
Is a love like no other, that continues to unfold.
3rd Place: Melissa Costigan
Dearest Soccer: you were my first, and everlasting love.
You’re so perfect, you must have been sent from the gods above.
When injuries sideline me, I do a lot of crying.
But I will love you forever, and I’m not lying.
