    and maturity

    roll, skip, fall down and shout which is
    essential for mental and physical development

What Matters to Your Child?

    factors in children's involvement in sport

    adults/parents/grand-parents

    with other children
  • For Mastery to improve and master at least some
    aspects of the sport
  • Most children play to have fun with
  • their friends. They do not play to
  • entertain the adults, boost the adults
  • ego, or improve the family social status
  • within the Community.

  • If youve ever driven a car
  • with three kids screaming
  • and fighting in the backseat,
  • think about this Does it tend
  • to pull your attention away
  • from the task at hand? Do
  • you ever feel overloaded?
  • If you add more pressure to
  • that car ride, such as an icy
  • road, can you handle all that
  • at once? Thats exactly what
  • coaches/parents do when
  • they yell at kids to do
  • something They distract
  • them. They create cognitive
  • overload.
  • (pg. 161, Just Let the Kids Play)

The Ride Home
  • Good Questions on the Way Home
  • Did you have fun today?
  • What do you think you did well today?
  • Did you learn anything today?
  • Topics to Avoid on the Way Home
  • Dont Evaluate your child's performance, he or
    she is playing to have fun, not to earn a grade!
  • Be Supportive! Fun Success

For some reason, adults - some who can't
even kick a ball - think it is perfectly okay to
scream at children while they're playing soccer.
How normal would it seem if a mother gave a
six-year-old some crayons and a coloring book
and started screaming? "Use the red crayon! Stay
in the lines! Don't use yellow! You think that
child would develop a passion for drawing? Most
important parents must realize that playing
sports is a way for children to express
themselves."        Claudio Reyna, Former Men's
U.S. National Team Captain

What to Expect from the Coach
  • At Practice
  • Will create a safe, fun environment!
  • Players should be engaged, active
  • and having fun through games!
  • Games should be the teacher
  • you should not see lines, laps, or lectures
  • At Games
  • Players should be allowed the
  • freedom to play without constant
  • Instruction
  • Players should not be restricted to
  • fixed spaces or positions in soccer.
  • Players must move and interchange
  • positions according to the flow of the
  • game.

Did You Know 90 of volunteer coaches in the U.S
have had no coaching education!

Keeping it in Perspective.
  • 73 of all kids who play organized
  • Youth sports end up quitting by the
  • time they reach the age of 13!
  • (Time Magazine, 7/12/99)
  • Major Two Reasons Kids Give Up Sport
  • Its No Longer Fun
  • Its Too Competitive
  • Congratulations on supporting your child's choice
    to play soccer in their leisure time
  • It is going to be a great opportunity for them to
    have fun, express themselves and make new
    friends!
  • Please enhance your childs experience by being a
    positive parent and allowing them to play and
    enjoy the benefits of soccer and sport

Remember The spirit of a child knows no bounds
until limited by adults.
