Recently a fellow Hanyang Univeristy (HYU) student Lee Eun-sun was awarded a prize for her essay; ‘The Girl Who Plays Soccer’ that was written for the ‘Hanyang Gender Sensibility’. This essay reminded many of the existence of a woman’s soccer team. Found in 2013, LION Ladies is the only women’s soccer club in HYU. “Ladies” from a wide spectrum of majors and age come together every Friday to share their passion about soccer. We met with Ye-rim Choi, the leader or the team, to ask a few questions about Lion Ladies

Q. When do you recruit new players? What kind of students do you think should try out for Lion Ladies?

A. The recruiting period officially starts at the beginning of each semester and lasts for two weeks but new members are always welcomed. (It is, however, unfortunate to note that we do not pick new recruits while we are in the middle of training for an important competition.) We are often asked by potential recruits if they need to be good in soccer to join this club, but the answer is no. You just need to be passionate.

Q. What do you usually do during your ‘weekly exercise’ every Friday?

A. Weekly exercise starts with basic skill training, which is especially important for beginners. After that, we split into two groups and play soccer. It takes about two hours in total.

Q. Is there any competition that you regularly take part in?

A. Every year we play in women’s amateur soccer tournaments held by Kookmin University and Seoul University. We participate in other small competitions as well. As for our proudest achievement, we’ve won third place in the two recent tournaments held by Kookmin University.

Q. What do you think makes LION Ladies unique in comparison to other student clubs?

A. The fact that Lion Ladies is the only women’s soccer club in HYU is what makes us unique. Also, since our entire club consists of “ladies” causes for a stronger bond between members that not many clubs have. Another thing is that makes us unique is that fact that we have many foreign students. Every semester, at least three or four of foreign students join our club.

Q. What is your plans or goals for this year?

A. Our biggest goal was to place in a competition, but since we have already achieved that goal, I guess our goal now is to place first. We are also planning to participate in Korea University Sports Federation championship next year, so I guess it is safe to say that our goal is to advance on to the final round of that competition.

Q. We believe that there are two types of sport clubs: one that focuses on training and the other that only focuses on making friends and having fun together. Which type is LION Ladies?

A. We try to concentrate on training and keeping healthy when we are training for competitions. But when we go to have dinner together or participate in membership training, we just try to have fun. So I think it is safe to say we are both.
