Christen Press Mom
During an interview, Press revealed that she was signed up for soccer at the age of 4 and her mother brought a camcorder in every game so that she could record the first time she touched the ball.
“Apparently I played 11v11, full-field, one of like two girls on the field. It was pretty intense. Not your average rec league in Torrance [Calif.]. My mom says the entire season I just picked daises and made daisy chains. My mom brought the camcorder every game because she wanted to record the first time I touched the ball. She had to bring it to every game because I never touched it.
“I did cartwheels. I waved. Toward the end of the season, she said, ‘Christen, why don’t you go to the ball?’And I said, no. We can do gymnastics or something else.”
Her mother encouraged her and asked her to try one more years and then she would try other sports.
“OK. Why don’t we try one more year? Then we can try other sports. OK, that’s fine. And then it was 7v7, all girls, small-field. I scored like eight goals in the first game. And we don’t know what happened. We don’t know what happened. What force of nature made me want to score goals?”
Press had also said that she was brought up in a competitive family. Her mom once read that soccer legend Pele would train every day by taking 100 shots with each foot and she asked her to also do it. Christen revealed that at times she felt burdened by the pressures to succeed but it also gave her the drive.
