I want to thank you for creating this website where parents can access good advice for helping our kids play the beautiful game. In the past, I had been checking out all the soccer forums which tend to be more gossip and rival smack posting than actual good advice. I just watched all of your interviews and feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
As a dad and coach, thanks....Thanks for the perspective and stories....I hope to continue to read and learn from your insights.
I love what you have created in MySoccerParenting. As a lifer in the game from player, coach, parent perspective I believe you are fulfilling a great need.
We acknowledge the importance of long-term athletic development and we understand that youth soccer participation supports an active lifestyle; the longer children continue to play sports, the more likely they are to be healthy and active adults.
We acknowledge the positive impact a coach can make on a child's life, and we commit to holding coaches to a high standard of integrity, professionalism and compassion so our children feel optimistic about their potential, even in the face of defeat.
We foster our children's love of soccer by seeking to educate ourselves about the rules, nuances and intricacies of the game.
We support our children's youth soccer participation because we want them to develop grit, determination, and resiliency while learning the empathy, compassion and solidarity that will make them caring and committed adults.
LOVE OF THE GAME
We acknowledge that every child has varying levels of athletic potential and we seek to establish an environment where ALL children can play youth soccer because they LOVE TO PLAY, not because they want a college scholarship or a professional contract.
We believe parents use a clear perspective when making soccer choices for children, ensuring the decisions are in the best interest of our child's long-term happiness, contentment and positive attitude.
I recently discovered your website and wanted to reach out and tell you how much I appreciate your articles. I played soccer at Dartmouth College and now have three children who are getting more and more involved in athletics. I am increasingly discouraged as I see the way that youth sports are going (year-round commitments, early specialization, over involvement and unrealistic expectations of parents, etc.). I am hoping that the research that is coming out about youth sports will help swing the pendulum back toward a more healthy and positive athletic culture for our children. Thanks again for your great work!
