13 year old playing Varsity Soccer

hey, so i'm new here.

next year I will be a freshman at 13 years old, and according to the rules of my school, I must try out for varsity soccer. I don't have many doubts that I can make the team, as my school is a small private school. I'm just wondering how I'd do playing against some kids that are seniors. I'm currently 5'3, 102 pounds, and play left back. I know I'll probably be bigger next year, but I'm just wondering if I'd even stand a chance against a six food right winger.

thanks,

cac

CAC,

Thanks for the post. It can tough playing against older and more physically mature players. Plenty of smaller players do well on the varsity soccer team. Coaches will put smaller players on the wings occasionally to avoid some of the taller players in the middle of the field.

Keep working on your touch and skill, those are the areas you can influence. Don't worry about the physical nature of the sport, you will find your way. You stand a good chance against taller players.

Best of luck to you and your team.

Hey, thanks a lot for the encouragement. I'm going to be doing a lot of training over the summer so I can be ready for next year.
