Why Should Your Child Play Soccer?
The number one reason why children play soccer is to have fun! Getting your child to participate in an organized soccer school or club can offer tremendous benefits to you and your child.
Social benefits such as:
- Having to work as a team
- Working individually toward a collective goal
- Striving to be the best
- Supporting and helping others are all by products of playing soccer
Studies have shown that getting young children involved in soccer at an early stage promotes a healthy attitude towards the game and instills the qualities of a good sportsmanship. This attitude extends off the field and continues with them into adult life. Soccer benefits their overall fitness level and improves their coordination, balance & flexibility, speed & stamina, agility, and ability to think ahead and make quick decisions. Soccer can aid in increasing your child’s self-esteem, which could drive their performance not only the soccer field but in other areas of their lives as well!
