I started playing adult co-ed soccer 3 years ago. I was 35 years old and although I was somewhat in-shape, I found out that soccer required much more fitness and strength.
It took me about 18 months to get into good enough shape where I can play for a couple of hours and not die from soreness the next day.
I have had so much fun playing and made some new friends and totally enjoyed myself. I now play year around - about 5 seasons a year - 3 outdoor and 2 indoor.
This indoor season, I decided to play keeper. It was humbling to give up 7 goals the first game since I had no clue what I was doing. Luckily I studied and learned keeper techniques on the web and have posted 2 shutout games! Woo hoo!
For anyone considering joining an adult league - I totally recommend it!
