I want to ask a question highly related to my path with sports; here it is:
Am I too old to start playing soccer? I have everything a soccer player has because I have ran and weightlifted my whole life; however, I have only been practicing ball control for a few hours a day by juggling and running with the ball - for only two weeks. So I can tell you I am very fast, I can jump, (I am not too agile however), and I can't dribble.
I am 19 and I am looking to join a league soon. I plan to play on the intramurals for one season, and walk-on to my university's soccer club in fall. I want to practice ball control every day, for at least one hour - by juggling and dribbling the ball. I can do this solo.
My question is, is it realistic to hope one day I can make it to the big leagues? Perhaps start at a club and then the MLS? How realistic is it? I am very discouraged (but nevertheless I will keep on practicing) because I know only of soccer players that have practiced since they were young are at the top.
However I don't know if such question is on-topic.
