    No. Unless you have a natural god given talent then it will be pointless. But I don't know the size of your school or the competitiveness of your athletes.

    If you are a runner and in good physical condition - go for it. It can be physically taxing. I have 5 grand children who play soccer - it's fun but it is work.

    I'd say yes. I signed up for soccer purely because the school forces us all to be involved in at least one sport, and that seemed to be the one that needed the least actual skill. [​IMG]

    I usually have fun - I was placed in the bottom team with my friends, and most matches/training days are basically a time to catch up and let off some steam. [​IMG]

    Soccer isn't necessarily my sport, but you should try it if you want to. [​IMG]

    Its entirely up to you, but don't let peer pressure get in the way. Find out a little bit more about it, think, watch a couple games, think, and then decide.

    If your friends are urging you, I suspect they think you will be good at it. It will be hard to pick up the finer points of the game right away, but kicking a ball around is always good for letting off steam.
