Ive met some people that have went to Brazil and played soccer with the natives. Its amazing that even though they might not have the best life they all enjoy playing the game. Most of the low income families own a ball because thats how much passion they have for the game. Even if they dont have tv's they find ways to watch the games being played by professionals.

All other countries besides the USA think that the game of soccer is the best. Soccer is the most widely played sport across the world. Soccer is an olympic sport where as baseball and football that are played in the USA mostly are not. Soccer is definately the greatest sport worldwide. Athletes that play soccer are well trained and their whole body is in great shape.

Whats also great about soccer is it doesnt matter how big or little you are. It doesnt matter if you have a little extra weight than others. These body types are placed on certain areas of the field to play up to your strengths. Teams need tall playerss, short players, skinny players, and muscular players.Soccer is a fantastic sport for all types of people.
The smell of fresh cut grass makes me think of soccer season. Spring season is a great time to run those winter pounds off and get back into getting touches on the ball. Get some pick up games going and introduce the game to kids so that when you graduate the program wont suffer. Its important to keep the intrest going with generations.

Being great at playing the game doesnt make you a good coach. Maybe some of us that play should learn some techniques in order to coach younger generations to keep the numbers up that are interested in playing. Little kids can be frustrating but if you can give them patience they will in return give you respect.

Kids love to run around and score goals. Make practicing fun that way they dont feel as if they are working hard even though they really are. Make up some games to show them ways to pass to each other and dribble down the field with a defender. Show them cool tricks that they can work on at home to keep them coming back trying to show you their progress.
Today is a great day to play some soccer. Sitting in class I just want to get out and go play. I decided I need to work on my touches and foot skills. Its time to better yourself. Take your talent into your own hands and go for it. Get yourself better by going out and practicing. Practice makes perfect. You dont see many talented players say that it just comes natural and that they didnt practice what they do.

College soccer is much different from high school. Most colleges will tell you that the pace of the game is much faster but really i dont agree. If you have a decent team in high school then the speed of the game is about the same. Also you need people that can keep up with you. Thats why making yourself the best you can be is so important.

If your at your best then the team with benefit. I understand you can do it all but as long as your doing the best you can then the team will feed off of your success. Try to get teammates to come out and work out with you. Train eachother and show one another tricks that you have mastered. Stick together and work as one and the team will do great.
