In starting of my grade 11 I missed my school for almost 2 months to complete my training in Barcelona, Spain. The challenge was not only to get adject to there game but also to get selected in there devision 2 team and also to maintain my vegetarian diet. I was able to accomplish this tasks successfully, getting selected in there division 2 team, MPEP.
This are the LO which I was able to accomplish through this experience.
LO1: Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth.
Going into such competitions and the different atmosphere was not easy for me, One of my important tasks was to get selected and to aids. When I was aware of my weaknesses, I tried to work on them and overcome than my camps. Once this was done I also had to find a solution for culture barriers, like language and vegetarian food, which for the first few weeks was hard but then eventually I overcome it.
LO2: Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills
Working on your weaknesses and making it a strength is not easy. As you are working on something in which you are struggling. These weaknesses can be overcome by practice and with a proper trainer. My coaches and psychologies in Spain helped me to find and overcome all the problem I had not only on the field but in my personal life too. for example, I used to get quite nervose in matches but with the help of psychologies analyses and coaches, I was able to overcome it. Some of the challenges which I undertake were cooking food over there, and organizing myself as I was sharing my room with 3 more people. to end I didn’t only learn new football skills but also to organize myself and to avoid culture barries.
LO5: Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively
Football is a game which can only be won by working collaboratively. Coordinating with other team members is a must. Begin new in the team rise many challenges not in football but also some argument about passes and other things. Though in a week I was well known in the club because of my game, and also made some good friends which whom I roam and also explore Barcelona.
