Okay, I just joined soccer at my school, never played before in my life, and we only have a varsity team (it's an extremly small school, only like 450 kids PreK-12th, and 12th can't be JV so we have to have a varsity team so everyone can play and we don't have enough ppl for JV). I had two practices and we had a "Jamboree" (pretty much it was a scrimage and it was made of 2 20min. halves). I had to play the entire game, but I only started as a sweeper and moved to mid-field. Anyway, the point is, I run cross-country and I am the fastest on our soccer team, therefore my coach put me as sweeper. I'm fine with this, but I've never played before so I need some tips as to how to play my position as best as I can. We have one practice b4 our next 2 games (we have practice Mon.-Thurs., but Tues. (tomorrow) there's no school and most of the girls wouldn't have shown up for practice, and the games are on Wed. and Thurs.). I need tips...anyone got any? I mostly need to become less scared of the ball and more aggressive.
