Soccer Update (Mon 30 May – Sun 5 June)

Posted by WYSC Administration on May 31 2016 at 01:31PM PDT

Dear WYSC members,

Bring a Friend to Soccer this week!
This week is Health and Fitness Week and WYSC is offering the opportunity for any player to ‘Bring a Friend’ to soccer for a day.

It’s a great opportunity for any kids that haven’t played soccer before to come along and join in the fun.

So please encourage your player to invite a friend to come to either a midweek practice this week OR on Saturday 4th June. Please let them know to bring water and to wear sports shoes for the session.

Sunday 5th June from 2-5pm is the Whistler Sports and Activity Showcase at Myrtle Philip Community School Gym. This is an opportunity to book summer camps and fall programs and find out about all activities and sports on offer in our community.

Speech by Will Evans – Grade 4
Will was asked to write a speech and he chose soccer as his inspiration! Read on for a reminder of why soccer is so great ……!

My topic is the benefits of soccer for kids

Did you know soccer transforms lives? Kids learn skills that will help them succeed in life from playing soccer. Even though soccer keeps kids fit soccer also teaches kids life skills. A life skill is a skill that is necessary for full participation in every day life.

From the website completesoccerguide.com one of the many life skills that soccer teaches kids is sportsmanship. Sportsmanship is appropriate polite and fair behaviour while playing a game this also includes learning to be nice when you lose. Through good examples by coaches and teammates players learn what it takes to have good sportsmanship.

A second skill that soccer teaches kids is leadership. Leadership is the ability to lead other people. Players learn that their teammates need someone to guide them in the right direction.

One more key benefit to playing soccer is social skills. Social skills are the skills we use to communicate with each other. Teammates communicate with each other and share a common bond that builds togetherness. Some teammates even become lifelong friends.

From my speech you will have learned that soccer teaches kids life skills. Some of those skills are sportsmanship, leadership and social skills.

I think soccer is a great sport for kids!
