First Footballing Memory:
My first footballing memory would be the first goal I scored in U12’s. One of my team mates got fouled in the box and I got nominated to take the shot. I stood behind the ball and measured out the steps I needed to take. As I kicked the ball I put all my power in the shot and held my breath waiting for it to land in the back of the net. The ball flew straight over the keepers head and into the back of the net. I jumped with joy as did my whole team and support crew. Still to this day I have not forgotten my first footballing memory!
Goal for 2018:
My goal for 2018 is to have a scout pick me up and give me greater opportunities to play in a professional league. I want to complete my Level 4 refereeing course and work my way up to refereeing for Football Gold Coast.
Amazing work Katycia and keep striving for all your goals!
