Definitely, people don't think it's "cool" unless you're training with a team, it's all a bunch of crap, you gotta do what you gotta do without caring about what others think.
In fact, if these people had half a mind, they'd start admiring you for your dedication.
Tip: just try and look super serious and focused, do some hardcore stuff when you notice people watching, show off any ball skills you've got as if it's nothing. And an iPod plugged in will help with the overall image.
Edit : Of course, that last paragraph^ is just for appearance, if you care what people think. If you don't whatsoever, then all the power to you, but you obviously do, or you wouldn't have made this thread. But it's only natural to care, perfectly normal.
Once again, good luck
