Madison’s hobbies

Hello everyone!

My name is Madison and 2 of my favourite hobbies are soccer and skiing.

I have been playing soccer since the age of 5. I don’t know where I’d be today without soccer in my life. It has shaped me into the person I am today. Over the years, I have worked hard and made many accomplishments through playing soccer. Playing on a team l, I’ve learned the value of teamwork and I have gained skills such as leadership and communication. Currently I am the co-captain on my Metro Team. We have three practices a week and a game on Sundays. Soccer also allows me to maintain regular physical activity, which I think is super important for me. With my busy school schedule, soccer is a way for me to relieve stress and exercise, which actually helps me focus better when I’m doing school work too. Sadly, now that I am in grade 12 this is my last year of youth league play. I have really enjoyed my soccer experience for over the past 12 years. Moving forward, I hope I find my way back to soccer and join a Women’s league as a way to stay in shape through my adulthood and continue playing the sport I love.

Another hobby I thoroughly enjoy is skiing. Although I can only ski during the winter, I try to take advantage of the ski season as much as I can. When I am skiing, I feel very relaxed and detached from my busy daily routine. Being in the mountains surrounded by nature is another reason I live skiing. I love seeing the snow pile on top of the trees to the point of falling. As many of you might know, my action, Project One with Nature, involves my love for nature too.

Some of my favourite mountains to go skiing are Cypress, Seymour and Manning Park. Over the years, I’ve been able to enhance my skiing skills by taking lessons, but also by working hard and continuing to practice on my own. Every time I go out skiing, I’m always trying to straighten out my skis more and work on my balance and speed.

You might be able to tell that I like to spend a lot of my time outside and being active. During other seasons throughout the year, I also enjoy water skiing, surfing, hiking, and biking. I love sharing my passion for being active with others as well, and I’m always doing these activities with my friends and family.

Thank you for reading!

    Hi Madison!
    For my hobbies I was seriously considering also putting down soccer and skiing because those are two things that I also love to do!I have been playing soccer since I was seven and I think it’s really impressive that you’re on the metro team and you are co-captain. I only started skiing when I was 10 but I absolutely love it as well. personally my favourite mountain to go on is Cyprus. Like you, being outdoors makes me relaxed and ultimately brings me joy and I feel the same way about being active and seeing the mountains when skiing. It can be hard to focus on the actually skiing part when your surrounded by all the beauty! Do you play sports on any school teams? Although I’m only in grade ten, I’m also dreading not being able to play soccer on a youth team anymore. I think joining women’s league is definitely a good idea because you seem so passionate about the sport.
    Thank you for sharing your hobbies:)

    • Hi Cynthia,

      Thanks for commenting!

      Yes Cyprus is a great mountain, I really like the Panorama run because of the amazing view it has. 🙂

      That is so funny that you love the same activities too!! What club do you play soccer for?

      Throughout high school I have played on the senior girls soccer team. Do you play on any school teams?

    hi Madison
    I am so impressed by your hobbies. Your interest in soccer really motivates me and I wish you were here so that you can also couch us so that we can also have that interest. I hope one day you will join the big teams and start playing for your country.

    • Hi Rose!
