MORE ABOUT SOCCER:

Soccer Is a Great Game for Children of All Ages

  • It's aerobic. During a soccer game, kids are constantly running from one end of the field to the other. Studies show that exercise has clear physical and psychological benefits. Children who play soccer regularly are getting in the habit of incorporating regular exercise into their lives. In addition, physical exercise can help combat obesity.

  • It's cooperative. Because passing the ball is essential to success in both offense and defense, players must communicate well and be consistently mindful of their team members' whereabouts on the field.

Everyone Gets Involved

  • It's inclusive. Children of all ages and varying ability can enjoy the game.

  • It's truly a team sport. In soccer, only the goalie is subject to ongoing individual scrutiny as she prevents the ball from entering the goal. This means that soccer can be a less pressured sport for children than baseball, for instance, in which the individual skill of batters and pitchers is constantly on display. Soccer is particularly appealing to kids who may not have superior athletic ability, but who enjoy participating in team sports.

  • It teaches social coping skills. Because it is so focused on group participation, playing soccer can teach children good sportsmanship. Playing on a soccer team coached by a caring adult can help children learn to cope successfully with challenges like winning and losing, group decision-making, and getting along with kids of varying backgrounds and temperaments.

  • It's international. Encouraging children to share in the excitement generated by soccer around the world can help them learn about other countries and experience The Bahamas as part of a larger, diverse community of nations.

Note to Parents: In soccer, as with any sport, your attitude will affect your children's enjoyment of the game. Attending games and cheering is a way of concretely demonstrating support for your kids, and is a good way to participate in their expanding lives.
