Can you be noticed by soccer scouts without being on a high school team?

There are several venues to the scouting process. By "scouted" I assume you're talking about either professional soccer or the Olympic or World Cup teams.

First, every state in the USA has several competitive "club" (travel) teams. These teams generally have a very high level of coaching. From these teams, the best players in each age group make it into the ODP state pool (Olympic Development Program). From the various state pools are picked the regional camp teams, which have tournaments heavily visited by the scouts, as the "best of the best" from around the country are playing all in one area during a short period of time. From those kids, the national scouts and college scouts will pull people.

Being a skilled player at the high school level can certainly get one noticed. But if it's at a school where the team has a very bad record, it's possible that a very good player could be overlooked. Generally, the top players will help lead their teams to regional victories, where they are more likely to be noticed and selected for a higher level of play. Yes you can be noticed by one without being on your high school team! Being on a club team is way more important than being on a high school team. Yeah, being on a high school team does help, but it's definitely not everything. I play for club, and I'm on the varsity soccer team at my school. And I most likely won't get noticed through my high school, because our team sucks, haha. When you're on a club team their main goal is getting their players on college teams. Cause if you get picked, it makes their club more popular. Makes perfectly good sense, ey? I thought so too! Haha!

anything is possible.

This is entirely dependent on the speed when you hit the curb. Say, at more than 60kph, you would most likely lose your tires, worst the impact would create crack/s if your car is fitted with alloy wheels and finally the car's tie rod-end ball joints.

Who first discovered soccer?

WAS THIS HOW SOCCER WAS INTRODUCED - THE ORIGINS & HISTORY OF THE GREAT GAME Many different cultures have played a sport similar to the modern game of soccer but no one can really say with any certainty when or where soccer began but it is known that the earlier variations of what later became soccer were played almost 3000 years ago. One of the earliest forms of soccer in which players kicked a ball around on a small field has been traced as far back to 1004 B.C. in Japan. The Munich Ethnological Museum in Germany has a Chinese text from approximately 50 B.C. that mentions games very similar to soccer that were played between teams from Japan and China. The Chinese kicked a leather ball ( hair-filled ) and it is known with certainty that a soccer game was played in 611 A.D. in the then Japanese capital, Kyoto. The Romans played a game that somewhat resembled modern soccer. The early Olympic games in Rome featured twenty-seven men on a side who completed so vigorously that two-thirds of them had to be hospitalized after a fifty-minute game. While historians kept records of events such as wars and religious movements they had very little interest in preserving the various origins of soccer or many other sports, so no one can say how soccer seems to have spread from Asia to Europe. The most popular game on earth.
