|Why 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.
