Yeah, yeah, yeah. Um, speaking of memes

Quincy Amarikwa (01:48):


Quincy Amarikwa (01:49):

There we go. Uh, that's what I was looking for. Um, yeah, what's been going on everybody as everybody's joining in, uh, you guys know what it is. It is the hashtag ask a soccer pro show. I'm your host 12 year pro mental strength league coach hall of fame, UC Davis hall of fame member, MLS cup champion, black players for change founder and mental strength, coach Quincy, America. You guys know what it is, is another episode of the hashtag S soccer show where we break down the MSL, AKA the mental strength league game of 4d chess, where either an active participant or you're steady in the game getting played every Thursday, 6:00 PM, PST 9:00 PM EST live on the at perfect underscore soccer Instagram account. We break down the MSL, um, with the, with the MSL lesion, right? Uh, we're we're a team and network of individuals who are looking to elevate each other so we can accomplish our goals because the MSL mentality is the mindset you need to accomplish your goals.

Quincy Amarikwa (02:56):

And, uh, this is your chance to ask questions of an over decades, long pro as well as ride that MSL wave because 2021 is the year of the frequency. Speaking of frequency, Quincy is a free agent, um, and going through that whole process, um, as well as all the work we're doing with BPC, um, our work with the us soccer foundation, uh, the work of being a dad, uh, with two little ones and a husband and, uh, yeah, business owner operator, trying to survive through the pandemic and COVID right. Ooh, the, um, the new normal that we are all, uh, getting accustomed to, but how is everybody doing? I'm seeing everybody's spamming the heart button, seeing some questions starting to come in. Um, and we can get started. We can get going today. I'm leaning towards, I think today might be a shorter episode. Um, we just got out to Morro Bay with the family, um, spending some time out here and going to go with the boys to get some ice cream, uh, before it gets too dark.

Quincy Amarikwa (04:15):

So while you got me, okay, take full advantage soccer dad for life joined. Dan what's going on. James Hayne dropped in, um, Hurtado 13, uh, Paul Pogba Jr said, I'm ready for the frequency, flame emojis loving that. Okay. Kendall Cox soccer joined in what's going on far as T E 35. Welcome. Uh, but Joe Jackson said injured my quad and hip flexor might miss restive state cup first round. I'm sorry to hear that brother. Um, but hopefully you understand what the injury is and you've got a kind of path the road to recovery and make sure you stick to your, um, physical therapy. Um, it's better to come back to you late than too early. That is lessons learned from a veteran in the game. Um, speaking of veteran in the game. Okay. That is what fatigued Lashay. I think he's officially a veteran in the game now.

Quincy Amarikwa (05:17):

He's, he's an, uh, an MLS cup champion. Um, that's in the history books. Uh, but I just saw the news that he signed with a second. What was it? You're right. Sacramento Republic, right? That's their name? I know that's her name? Um, so congratulations to him. If you guys haven't been, uh, you guys haven't been falling for Ty along his journey. We met while we were in San Jose, um, with earthquakes and he was my roommate on a lot of road trips. Uh, had a lot of stupid conversations, fun conversations. And, um, he's a great dude and, uh, I'm excited for him happy that he, he got another club and, uh, excited to watch him watch him this year. Um, Oh, also fun fact. I think the San Jose earthquakes account had posted like the first game at Avaya stadium. Fun fact. I was at that game as against the Chicago fire when I was playing for the fire at that time. And I saw Fatah's score his, uh, his first goal as a rookie. I was on the field. Um, so it's funny when you think about that kind of full circle.

Quincy Amarikwa (06:25):


Quincy Amarikwa (06:27):

But okay. Sage of DBZ says he has a question. Go ahead, drop your question in.

Quincy Amarikwa (06:33):


Quincy Amarikwa (06:36):

Uh, so I said a friend, a friend, a friend, practice practice with a team and also practice with me a few hours before like two hours. He practice how to deal with them training more than me.

Quincy Amarikwa (06:49):

Um, I dunno, Sage DBZ,

Quincy Amarikwa (06:52):

Right? That question. So I could better understand what you're, what you're asking. Um, uh, I'm assuming, you're saying, you know, someone trains more than you. How do you deal with that? But, uh, I want to make sure I'm, um, I'm clear on the question, Carly, welcome. What's going on? I see one, five, six, seven, nine, six, future billionaire joined in what's going on?

Quincy Amarikwa (07:14):


Quincy Amarikwa (07:16):

Yeah, Pogba told, uh, Joe Jackson, uh, that's rough hope, hope for a speedy recovery.

Quincy Amarikwa (07:24):


Quincy Amarikwa (07:25):

Rafa said I have practice, but it's super, super windy. Do I still go? Yeah, I think you can still figure out other things that you can do, um, to improve your game. You can work, um, work on your ball control and dribbling session, or you can do wind sprints literally into the wind and work on, um, work on power. So there's always ways in which you can, you can adapt and change. I don't know if you guys have been following, what's been going on over at America acres. Let me see if I can slide and pull something up here. Oh yeah, there we go. Could you guys can see how you just make it work? You do what you can, right? Like getting my ball work, being prepared, staying sharp for if and when a team comes a Collin and is offered an opportunity. Now I got my perfect soccer mini ball, shout out the perfect soccer mini ball, been amazing, uh, training, training tool. This off season. If you guys haven't been training with a mini ball, especially perfect soccer community ball, you aren't maximizing your training sessions and that's for sure. Um, but yeah, you, you figured out you don't have to have everything. Things don't have to be perfect.

Quincy Amarikwa (08:45):

You figured out that paid by myself, learn how to use a tractor, took advantage of the extra time that you had this off season on the [inaudible] figure it out. Let me see what else. That's a good question. [inaudible] whatever it, whatever it is. So here's me doing individual trading with too, too many balls. So this one's just figuring out different ways in which you can keep yourself sharp when you have limited access and limited opportunity and trying to find ways to stay engaged and ready to go. So this one has been good, good exercise, too many balls, uh, training. You see my, my little one helping me out there a little bit more of a challenge. Uh, so hopefully this has given you guys some like examples, like you don't yeah, it's windy. Okay, cool. Turn it into Hill sprints. Like, um, that, that was an image Hill sprints. Let's see. Cause I was running like there's like Hills on the land. So I was liking that and been adjusting and train it, changing that up, doing sprints right on the road. So yeah. And then the question I had asked everybody over on, on Instagram, what's something you came, so I'll ask everybody who's on the live as well too. So drop this below. What's something you overcame that most thought you couldn't and a while we go for that, let's see what other questions have come in

Quincy Amarikwa (10:58):

A soccer dad for life said, love the picks and the videos of the family on the farm. Thank you very much. Uh, Sage, I think clarified my friend practices with me before his team practice for like two hours. I don't have a team I am playing with on that day and I don't want to be outworked. Uh, okay. So I think you got to try to find yourself a team to play with. And if, if you're not able to, hopefully, you know, some of the stuff you've seen me doing on the account here, um, some of the drills, um, just key creative, like I said, like, you know, uh, I don't have a team that I'm training with right now, right? Like when you're in your off season or in your free agency, you don't necessarily want to be playing too many games cause you don't want to get injured, but you also want to stay sharp.

Quincy Amarikwa (11:43):

So you're ready to go during the game. I've obviously been playing for over a decade. So, uh, I have a bit more experienced to understand what I need to do to make sure remaining sharp. Um, but there's also an aspect that you miss by not playing in any games. So, so first and foremost, I'd say, get, find a team so you can get those reps in and then if not, you gotta get real creative. And um, and uh, you know, if you're looking in needing ideas for how to be creative and how did you programs, I would definitely suggest you guys sign up for the perfect soccer subscription for free soccer Um, there you'll get access to the weekly, uh, at-home B pro training program, um, that can, that can give you some ideas and some direction, excuse me, and guidance.

Quincy Amarikwa (12:42):

New York city FC source joined what's going on, Kevin dummy be dropped by a judge. I said, love, love that videos, uh, saw that video. Love it. Um, uh, aunt dot P a L M I E R I S. Where do you play professionally new here. Um, so I just finished with Las Vegas lights. I've C for 2021. I'm currently in my free agency. So we'll see, um, you know, uh, what opportunities, uh, arise this year. And in the meantime, as you can see, um, staying fit on a mirror Quakers. So if you want to see how that process is going and you know, we've got, we've got, we've got cows, we've got some cattle out there now we, uh, finished our well, um, we'll start looking into citrus and, um, and uh, moving forward with, with all of that. So I'm excited for that. Uh, Kendall said amazing defender, uh, talking about my son, locking me down in, uh, in training. Uh, speaking of that. So you get to see

Quincy Amarikwa (14:02):

The gang out here looking for some breakfast in the morning gang out here, A lot, going on a lot, going on in the field, the amount of time, I think, you know,

Quincy Amarikwa (14:28):

Cause it's seen, uh, four 33 had repost re posted the chip goal, the infamous chip goal. Uh, it's great to see when that resurfaces and gets reshared across soccer platforms and channels, uh, reliving, uh, some good times, uh, if everyone had seen it, let's see what we got. Okay. So soccer dad for life said, so my 2008 boy Aiden joined new club, but they don't do many drills, but only scrimmage. It seems I don't get to watch due to COVID how important are drills?

Quincy Amarikwa (15:10):

They don't do many drills. I mean,

Quincy Amarikwa (15:15):

It depends. That's a difficult question because it depends on what drills you're doing and what your end goal is. Are you, are you trying to get to the professional level one day or are you just trying to get a little bit better at your local rec team? Are you trying to earn a starting spot and like what position do you play defender your forward? Um, I want to answer it. I want to answer the question. I just would need more, uh, more details to give like a really like curated specific, um, to your individual goals and needs and you know, like direction, but in general for, for everyone on, um, you know, playing the game I think is most important. So if it's between doing drills or playing, playing games, playing games a hundred percent now, if you don't have access to playing games, then getting creative with your drills, like what you saw me doing.

Quincy Amarikwa (16:09):

And what I showed here is, is, is most important, but it's kind of like, uh, uh, what do you call it? A priority chain. You want to put things in level of priority and I'd say playing games and getting game in game experiences, the highest priority, but not everybody has access to that. You know, maybe your coach doesn't play you. Maybe you're not good enough to play yet. Maybe you don't have access to a team. Um, maybe you don't have access to money to be, to afford to play for team. Maybe you don't live in a place where people care about soccer. Like there's a lot of things that can deny you or prevent you access to stuff. What the MSL mindset and mentality is, is a process of thought. And, um, the AmeriCorps processes is the core values that we implement to create access for ourselves, create paths of equity for ourselves.

Quincy Amarikwa (16:55):

Um, and for those who come after us, um, in worlds where those paths didn't exist. And I think that kinda ties into, you know, the experiences that I've definitely been, you know, experiencing as of late, a lot of the feedback I've been getting, um, has been valuable in helping me understand the parts that I've been getting wrong and how people have gotten me wrong and how I've gotten other people wrong. Um, and I think it will serve me well here, moving forward, whatever the future holds, but you guys know me, I'm here to always share those lessons learned. Um, and speaking of lessons learned, we'll go a little shout out and throw back to The end of the year, 2019, I saw this had come through again. So I had reshared let me see if I can find it.

Quincy Amarikwa (17:59):


Quincy Amarikwa (18:05):

Maybe it's a little bit further back than I was. I was thinking,

Quincy Amarikwa (18:23):

Oh man,

Quincy Amarikwa (18:27):

Well, I was thinking, ah, okay, here we go. These are the ones that I was looking for. Um, so at the end of 2019, I had shared lessons learned and relearned over on Instagram. So I sh I reshared some of those too, to my story. If you guys didn't get a chance to check those out, I definitely recommend having a read. Um, they're, they're a good lessons to remember. And I say that because I read them and I go like, yeah, I forget about that sometimes. So the reminders, it's almost like a public journal. You guys are almost seeing a lot of this lessons and lessons I've learned along the way that I share reshare with myself, because I tend to forget because I, I get disappointed a lot by what people choose to do at times. And that's normal, right? You've got expectations for yourself and for others.

Quincy Amarikwa (19:22):

And sometimes it's not necessarily fair to put your expectations on other people, but we're human and we tend to do that. Right. And sometimes you gotta, you gotta keep making the same mistake over and over before it sinks in and makes sense to you. And I think one of those is, uh, making sure you're taking credit for work that you do. Don't take credit for work that you don't do, but, uh, definitely take credit for the work that you do. Um, that's an important one, definitely an important one. Um, so if you guys hadn't seen that one, I'd, I'd recommend checking out that post, um, cause there's a couple of little gyms in there. What else was there? Oh, I dunno if I'd even talked about it on the, on the show, but love this meme, uh, or kicked off the show with kind of meme energy, right?

Quincy Amarikwa (20:19):

Uh, I think, uh, this was the cover photo for my, uh, my highlights from 2019, um, that I ended up just got swamped in working on a bunch of stuff and forgot to share. Um, but like I said in my free agency, so you gotta start, you gotta do that work and promote yourself and make connections and hunt down leads. And, uh, you know, doesn't matter how, how many years you are in the league. You still gotta, you still gotta do the work. So I'm in the middle of that process as well too. We'll see. Uh, what if comes from that? But let's see, as some more questions are coming in, Timmy pig joined in what's going on?

Quincy Amarikwa (21:11):

Um, what's the most, okay. Logan skip ton. 17 said what's the most important qualities for an outside center back, so okay. An outside back or center back. Okay. I think for me the most important quality of a center back is communication. I really think that's like the most important quality of any player. Right? Cause I think if you were so good at community, like think of it in terms of thought experience, experiment, most people say like, well you gotta be really great on the ball or a great passer, great vision or great all of those things, right. Um, if you're an amazing communicator, then you have at least good enough qualities at all of that to be able to see and execute on what you see. And more importantly, if you can communicate to the other members on your team, because you can see issues and problems early enough and give them the right command or message to know what to do. You're essentially putting out fires before they even become problems that people can see. And that would be the sign of, uh, of, uh, of the greatest, uh, player. But then the question becomes, how can you see that player if nothing bad ever happens? Right. So, um, that's where I come from on that. That's the most important quality to me learning and understanding who is a great communicator is a skill as well, too. One that I'm realizing not a lot of people have, or they do, but they choose not to like execute on it.

Quincy Amarikwa (22:55):

Uh, you guys are getting a peek into like kind of where I'm at right now. Like the guy at the top there, the that's where I'm at right now in the process thinking,

Quincy Amarikwa (23:05):


Quincy Amarikwa (23:07):

Like what is it? Or you know what it is, but you're waiting for other people to figure out what it is, But what happens if they never figured out, but what do you do to help them figure it out?

Quincy Amarikwa (23:22):

Just be patient.

Quincy Amarikwa (23:24):

That's usually the lesson of a veteran that's most hard to acquire doing less on of, anybody's heard the saying do less. We're going deep level MSL today. Guys

Quincy Amarikwa (23:43):

See who, who can hang in there with

Quincy Amarikwa (23:46):

Me on this, on this journey? Um,

Quincy Amarikwa (23:54):


Quincy Amarikwa (23:54):

Classic classic MSL episode.

Quincy Amarikwa (23:59):


Quincy Amarikwa (24:02):

Cause like I said, I've just been getting a lot of new feedback

Quincy Amarikwa (24:07):

For what's. Yeah.

Quincy Amarikwa (24:13):

What's been the result of a lot of work we've been doing. No, no. Did I share this image with you guys for the, the blackout collection? I don't know. Did anybody on submitter trying to enter to win? Um, Because I think it's just, you know, it's time for the blackout stories to come to life and um, yeah, I thought this was a dope, dope photo. Dope shoot was a good time. Okay.

Quincy Amarikwa (24:55):

Pogba said I shared that on my story also fire. Thank you very much. Okay. Soccer dad for life. It said the feedback from my boys that they seem to scrimmage the whole practice, but don't do many drills, maybe it's age 13 or under, or maybe just the club's style of practice. It could be the clubs style of practice. Um, it could be the clubs style of practice, but your what's the clubs like goal is the goal of the club to develop players or is the goal for the club to kind of just, you know, have a good time and make sure the kids are enjoying themselves. Uh, that's what, I'm not too sure of, uh, fly with captain Lucas said what's the best way to improve my first touch training by myself, uh, training by myself. I don't have a wall to kick against or anything, just a field and some cones.

Quincy Amarikwa (25:48):

Um, I was supposed to, we do improve your first touch. Well, okay. Then I would suggest getting like a perfect soccer, meaningful. Um, and then doing touch work with that, you saw me dribbling on the road. Like I kind of liked that because it's, uh, it's not solid or flat terrain. It's always changing. And the balls, obviously it's mini ball it's way, way smaller than a regular size match ball. So your touch has to be a lot cleaner. You gotta be way more dialed in and you want to get as many repetitions and touches on the ball as possible. Um, first touches really just repetitions and, and consistency over time. So for instance, it would be like the 10 pushup challenge in the sense that it's more important that you get, let's say a hundred touches on the ball every day for a hundred days straight, then, you know, a thousand touches on the ball every four or five days, right? Like consistency over time. What's the amount that you could do today, but also do the next day and the next day and the next day.

Quincy Amarikwa (26:56):

And, and not, I won't say not need a day off or not need rest, but, but doing it where you wouldn't need a day off for need rest. So like, if you can, if you can get up and you can walk and you're, you're able to walk, you walk every day, right? So like, even if you're only walking from your bed to the bathroom and back, you're walking every day. So like breaking up your goals and what you're trying to do into those chunks, uh, that, you know, you could do every single day. So if you could do 10 touches of the ball every day and do that, if you could do a hundred, then do that. If you can do a thousand Mindy that, but that'll take time to build up to, um,

Quincy Amarikwa (27:47):


Quincy Amarikwa (27:48):

Yeah. Sorry. Uh, finding Ryan C said he Quincy long time it has been awhile. How are you doing, what brought you back? Uh, where have you been on your journey? Let's see.

Quincy Amarikwa (28:07):

Okay. Kendall, Kendall Cox said soccer. Dad. I think it's most of the club style to scrimmage a lot. I am youth 13 and tried to supplement technical training outside of my team practice. Thank you very much for that feedback Kindle. Um, yeah. Um, like even in the coaching course that I, cause I took my C license this off season. Um, you know, it sounds like, you know, the U S soccer system, he has done kind of a reset as to their approach to the game and how they treat it in the language that they use. Um, it seems like there's a lot more going into getting more in game experience rather than focusing on the, um, focusing on drills per se. It's interesting. But you know, we'll see Sharday stopped by what's going on Chardonnay. Um, okay. Joe said, yeah, you showed the blackout collection. All of them look sick. Thank you.

Quincy Amarikwa (29:14):


Quincy Amarikwa (29:15):

Sage of DBZ said, do I train by myself outside of it? But I just wanted to know what are your thoughts on outworking everyone every time I think having the mentality to be willing to outwork everyone every time is, is a great foundation. Um, but I'm also gaining experience, understanding that like that's not always received positively by it. So like, so like,

Quincy Amarikwa (29:43):

You know, we talk about here teamwork equals dream work and, um, it has to work for the team. So, so it, yeah, it has to work for the team as well as working for you. And I think you may have heard it with the conversation I had with Serena back, uh, two episodes ago, um, you know, talking about how we've formed a team and how we work together and, uh, blending and managing all the different roles and, um, hats that you have to wear being a husband and wife, parents, uh, you know, she'll be my consultant. Sometimes I'll be her consultant where she's working for me, I'm working for her, we're working together, um, figuring out finding ways to make things work, can be work and difficult to do so. Uh,

Quincy Amarikwa (30:36):


Quincy Amarikwa (30:40):

Yeah. I guess I'm, I'm real, I'm coming to better understand how being willing to outwork and doing the workout work. Everybody, it can be positive, but it also can be negative. So, you know, when we talk about here is we talked about both sides of the coin. We talked about every angle we can think about, um, to understand, you know, practicing those three S's of self-awareness and understanding there's a lot of perspectives and opinions outside of your own. And a lot of those go into the opportunities you will or will not have along your soccer journey. So it's like,

Quincy Amarikwa (31:21):

Yeah, those are my thoughts on it.

Quincy Amarikwa (31:28):

Let's see where we got here. So, okay. So questions came in, coming in, uh, Kendall Cox dropped I'm in your head. That's right. You guys are getting into my head asking for my thoughts, I'm sharing my thoughts. And um, I think sharing my thoughts has been a positive. There's been a lot of amazing positive experiences that have come from chairman of thoughts, but also a lot of, uh, not so pleasant experiences have come from sharing my thoughts. And I was speaking with someone earlier today, um, about, um, this version of Quincy, right? This frequency of Quincy better understands When to share his opinion. And it tends to be best when, uh, it, it tends to be best to only share someone is asking for your opinion.

Quincy Amarikwa (32:41):


Quincy Amarikwa (32:44):

I can get down with that. And I understand that, but then the question becomes, if somebody, is, is somebody asking for your opinion, if they choose to tune in and listen to your show or listen to your platform or listen to your, you know, your podcasts and stuff. That's where I feel like that answer's gotta be yes. Even if in their mind they think it's no, but what do you guys think? Because everyone's out here just trying to understand, and I'm over here trying to stand under, you know what I mean? Caldwell said living in your head, I'm in your head emojis.

Quincy Amarikwa (33:24):


Quincy Amarikwa (33:26):

Hey, as long as you're living, that's all that matters, right? If there's unlimited mental space, I'm happy to share. Um, Kendall dropped the hundreds. Okay. The question came in Daniel, M E D I N a underscore 10 said, how do you college walk on tryouts work? Are they similar to a pro teams? Trout? I say like, uh, you know, technically like fundamentally, yeah. It's like, Hey, we're having tryouts show up. We'll watch you. Maybe there's some scrimmages. Maybe there's some, you know, a play that's going on, uh, to determine if they see it's worth keeping you or bringing you on the team.

Quincy Amarikwa (34:14):


Quincy Amarikwa (34:18):

So yeah, from that perspective, yes. But like chances of making college team in a trout versus chances of making a professional team in a trial, uh, I guess that'd be difficult to say, uh, uh, I would, uh, I'd lean on the side of saying that it's probably harder to go to a professional tryout and get on a team than it is to go to a college soccer trout, make the team. Um, but that's just like, that's just a guess. And I don't really know if that
