Name: Michael Wimpee
Which DCSS class do you attend? Level 2 and the Advanced class
Position you like to play? Anywhere in the middle of the field is great--striker, midfield, or defense.
What got you into soccer? My parents signed me up for a class as a kid, probably about six years old.
What you like most about soccer? From a playing perspective I like that it's great exercise that's easy to get up for; I can't find the motivation to go running by myself. As for watching, I can't think of one thing that stands out. I love the tactics and that teams have distinct styles of play, and I'm always in awe of the skill the pro's have.
What's the most important thing you've learned through DCSS classes, or your favorite drill or class memory? My favorite drills involve quick passing and movement where you have to think ahead and act quickly to keep up.
