Football in secondary schools

As a student in the sports programme in Luleå, you must have chosen a specific sports focus. There are 6 different sport specializations. Football is one of them, and that is what I will talk about know.

there is a three-year course which is divided into two courses, special sports A and special sports B. Special sports A has a duration of two years and special sports B only one year. The objective with special sports is that you as a student to develop and get a better understandig of the sport. You practice two times a week at school, besides you must at least have to practice three times a week with your club team, but the majority of football teams practice even more than that. As you can see, there is a lot of practices and at the same time you need to focus on school and all lessons that are most important.

The football practices is at an outdoor football field just outside the school. But in winter is it too cold for football practice there, so then we are in an indoor football field a few kilometre from school instead.

I have know gone one and a half years in sports programme, and I must say that it is really fun, to have had the opportunity to practice our own sport at school and not just at our free time, I think is just fantastic. But I must also say that sometimes I become a bit tired of football because there is so much practices.
