Survival of the fittest on soccer field?



“If you truly want to be respected by people you love, you must prove to them that you can survive without them.” Michael Bassey Johnson, The Infinity Sign

Anxious parents and grand parents. Excited children. Hopeful coaches. All form part and parcel of that springtime outdoor occupation called the soccer match. At times the weather is cooler than expected but the children’s energy levels and their coaches for an easy win is always a determining factor.

The is the time of the year when youngsters actively seek the thrill and excitement of playing outdoors. They might suffer from a touch of cabin fever and need an outlet to help them release their pent-up energies.

The school yard soccer tournament blossoms at just the right time of the year when energy levels are high, the grass is turning green and parents crave an outlet that will help their children calm down and become that much more easier to handle.

Soccer for these children is a playfully competitive survival skill that they develop in order to not only enhance their physical prowess on the playing field but also prove to themselves that they have what it takes to succeed in a demanding world.

At times the action is more social than survival but even their hopeful coaches realize that these kids are giving the sport their all and that is more important than merely winning the match.
