Anxiety and awkwardness during downtime at events

Does anyone else feel extreme anxiety and awkwardness during downtime at events? I have always felt this way at soccer practices during water breaks, or breaks in general at whatever event. I try to go up to people and start convos but I struggle with finding topics, and they are usually always talking to others anyway and I feel weird breaking in their convos. I thought this issue would go away after I matured, but it has been many years since high school (my prime time experiencing this) and I still struggle with this.

Its hard for most of us to make convo with strangers, and your possibly talking with a group of people who know each other, which makes it harder to fit in, straight away anyway. It takes time to build these things up. You seem to put a lot of pressure on yourself to find instant close friends. Build slowly, and soon you will have experiences on common by then, as you will have had time to build up familiarity.
