Your never too late to start. Just depends how much hard work you intend to put in and trying to catch up in terms of ability. You need to be practising, as much as possible. Xbox or football? Choose football. Have a ball at your feet all the time. Going to the shop? Dribble the ball to the shop. Do some keepie uppies, smack it against a brick wall. Make sure you're in the gym for your size to catch up physically and match the opposition. Find the position that suits you best and watch videos of players similar to those positions and learn from them. Take notes, join a team, work hard.
How should I teach a 4 year old to play football?
Sorry the other answer was so attacking to you. Seems like jocks make good targets on the internet these days.
1. start with the game basics. 2 sides, each trying to score a goal or touchdown. Each side has turns trying to score while the other side tries to stop them.
2. Explains Offense, Defense & goals of each. O gets to snap the ball (show them everything as you talk) The Center snaps between the legs to the QB. The QB can run, throw or hand off. Then teach the blockers, catchers, & runners. Don't get caught up on position names. Advance those when you can.
3. Safety! If its hitting than teach USAFOOTBALL heads-up &/ or shoulder tackling. Teach fairness= safety. No hitting from behind, in the head, or on the ground.
4. Kicking game is an add on. But again break it down to the basics. One team kicks off, the other gets to run back or fair catch.
Proper technique now makes all the difference later. If you don't know it, youtube it, break it down.
Remember a 4yr old may have a 10 minute attention span or 15 max for learning. Make sure you intermix games of chase with the football or kick/punt, or just throw & chat. Ask them what they think. 4 is tough unless they are really into it or have older siblings.
The other easier way is throw your kid into street a game with 5-8 year olds. The Pack will handle it. (That's I how I learned as a kid.)
I have a 3 almost 4y old daughter starting NFL Flag football here in Austin so I feel your pain. She wanted to play because the neighbor boys play football. She is also a diehard Seahawk fan. She has a medium interest so I work with that.
The other thing I have found with toddler & little kids sports is that it takes some time to learn how to learn & listen. My daughter has played organized soccer since 1.5yrs old. She was horrible with focus & attention. By 2 she was first in line for each thing & knew what to do. If your kid has never played expect a learning curve on how to learn, or on how to best coach on your end.
Teach by doing & showing. Have a ton of patience. Break teaching with exertion.
Best of luck!
Am I too late to get into MIT?
What are you trying to achieve?
Getting into MIT is not a goal, it’s a means to an end. What’s your end?
Let me tell you a quick story.
My freshman year at MIT I met an amazing guy. He’d just transferred in from Orange Coast College (see: https://www.usnews.com/education/community-colleges/orange-coast-college-CC06532
Phil lacked basic self-confidence in his own abilities walking in the door. His parents presumed he was not a capable scholar because he got rejected by CalTech in the first undergraduate admissions merry-go-round (hence, Orange Coast College).
Transfer admits are a really rare thing at MIT (the cohorts are packed and the graduation rate is very high, so opportunities for mid-cycle entry are few), and it felt like the only person who didn’t realize that was Phil. Thankfully.
Another thing Phil didn’t realize at the time was that he was an unqualified math genius.
I mean, I’d been doing matrix math since an embarrassingly young age drawing 3D animations on an IBM PC/XT at age 10, but MIT had convinced me I was an idiot (thanks, Gil Strang / 18.06) but Phil singlehandedly pulled me out of the ditch.
Anyway, Phil eventually was awarded a PhD from MIT, was an expert in electrical engineering and in mathematical modeling of unstable systems at the exact moment a major blackout occurred in the Northeastern United States. (I cannot remember whether it was this one, but it was significant : Northeast blackout of 2003 - Wikipedia
Apparently this is called “dynamic voltage collapse” and for obvious reasons became a smoking hot topic at the time.
Phil became (and is) an expert on this phenomenon, and lended his expertise willingly (and at a high, market-clearing price!) to build resilience into the systems that had failed and led to the collapse.
He was still not 30 years old.
He had some credits from a community college in California.
He was rejected by CalTech.
He had got admitted to, studied at, and obtained a PhD from MIT.
He had been rejected from CalTech.
He figured out what he was trying to achieve.
He achieved it.
He is not only the most mathematically gifted person I’ve ever met, he’s taken that love, that skill, that craft, and solved world-changing problems with it.
I can’t begin to wrap my mind around some of the things Phil attempted to teach me. But I’ve put a few iron-fistded punches my own into the world [in different areas than Phil’s], and I’ve made a noticeable small cracks. So far.
Why do you want admission to MIT? What are you trying to achieve?
The more clarity you have around what you’re trying to achieve, and the more specifically you can describe what you’ve done already to achieve your goal, and the better you can describe your ambitions and how admission to MIT can help you achieve them will dramatically improve your chances.
My story’s point was to show you that those who seek similar chances have set the bar extremely high, because they know what their goals are, and they’re willing to sacrifice to achieve them.
Phil was 5 foot 4 or so, and loved basketball. He wanted to dunk. He wore ridiculous looking shoes around Baker at MIT to build up his calf muscles. He looked like an idiot. Eventually, he could dunk. See:
If you’re willing to (and can demonstrate an ability to) endure challenges like these, you should think about how to “get into MIT”
As I said, it’s a means to an end. What’s your end?
I am 28 years old, how can I join a football academy?
No football academy is willing to take you in at 28, that horse bolted 12–14 years ago.
However, keep up practice and if you’re good enough to earn a trial at a rather average club, you still could earn around £25–60 pounds a week out of football.
I want to play a football team in Europe. I am from Ghana in Africa and I am 13 years old. What should I do?
First, you have to be very good at football. That is compulsory and by good I mean the absolute best in your city only then can you actually dream of playing for a big team. Now assuming you are good at football:
- You can migrate with your family to a European country preferably Spain or France. Many of the current young football prodigies have done this like Mbappe and Fati. Another added benefit of this is that if you are good enough you might be eligible to play for their ( country you are migrating to) national team in the future but for this method, you need to be really good at football because this decision will impact your entire family.
- If you can’t move to another country then you should enroll yourself in the youth academies at one of your local clubs, Provided you are good enough you will eventually get noticed by big clubs when you play for your local league or at an international tournament. This happened with Mohammad Salah who was picked up by the swiss club FC Basel after brilliant performances with El Mokawloon in the Egyptian Premier League.
All the Best. Hope you can make it
Is a GPA of 2.45 okay? I am going into 8th grade.
Yes, it is okay but you should probably try to get a higher gpa in 8th grade. While your grades technically don't matter in middle school, it's easier to get good GPAs in high school when you have had a lot.
Getting a 3.00 is much easier than you think, do all your homework and projects to achieve it. You only need to review your notes or information for a few minutes a day or if you like procrastinating, cram all the knowledge the day before the test/quiz.
Hopefully you have something else that you've been focusing on, like a sport. It's better to be good at art/sports/track and field but have a barely okay GPA then have below-average marks on everything.
I'm 16 yrs old.please is it too late for entering a football academy?
No it's certainly not too late but it does depend on a lot of factors. For example, your amount of football experience to date, your level of ability, etc.
There are plenty of examples of players picked up after your age who have gone on to long and successful professional careers though.
How can I join Chelsea Football Academy? I am 13 years old and I live in the United States.
Why on earth would you want to go to Chelsea would be my first response!
There are many other English clubs who offer better chances to young players.
But, in addressing your age and your location, I’m surprised you’re even contemplating such a big move. Unless you’re one of a very few rare breeds and have unbelievable talent you’re very unlikely to be offered anything from a club abroad.
Lionel Messi was a rare breed. Are you in the same league as he was at the same age? I very much doubt that. That’s an honest appraisal and not meant to be derogatory in the slightest.
If you were in such elite company st your age you’d have already been scouted and offered terms with a leading European club.
As that has not happened (yet - never stop dreaming and having ambitions however!), I’d suggest you continue with playing where you are at now and hope that your performances command some attention.
You could promote yourself to a certain degree by posting footage online of your playing abilities, both in training and competitive matches.
You could also try writing / emailing clubs directly with the highlighted footage and hope for a positive reply.
Most top European clubs have scouts scattered all over the world though so if you have elite ability they will find you eventually.
I wish you the very best of luck in pursuing your dreams.
For now, I’d suggest keep training hard and playing to the best of your ability in the US and see what happens through the systems in your own country. Many players from the US have had similar aspirations as yourself and have taken a path through the soccer systems in the states and been scouted by European clubs through their performances for MLS clubs and on the international scene.
And as for Chelsea…… try emailing Leeds United - they are fantastic at securing the best potential.
I am the best player in football. I am 18 years old. How can I get a professional team or academy?
That's amazing. You should just go to your closest professional team and demand a practice session with them. Once they see how good you are you will get a spot. Good luck.
