do kids play soccer?
When asked why they
play soccer, most kids will tell you that they play to have fun, make
friends, and learn new skills. Many parents will tell you their kids
play primarily to win games, and for the accomplishments.
Kids stop playing
when its not fun, too competitive or they, or their parents, have
unrealistic expectations of the kid.
Kids should be able
to compete against themselves, finding a sense of accomplishment in
their own improvement and accomplishment.
Kids should be
nurtured as whole children, recognizing that kids have a great deal of
demand on their time these days from activities, athletics, education,
religious participation, and the like. We recognize the importance of
balance in a child's life, and respect for the child's need for time to
be a child.
