Five reasons why you should enroll your child in soccer lessons
The benefits of soccer lessons go far beyond merely getting better at the game. Here’s a quick overview of what your child will gain:
Improved coordination, agility and balance. Through a combination of gameplay and drill exercises, kids will learn how to maneuver and control the ball, as well as develop technical skills like dribbling, passing, defending and shooting. Growing these skills in childhood can establish confidence and cultivate excitement for staying active, often lasting throughout their lives. Not only will these skills help in soccer gameplay, they can be also applied to other areas in which your child(ren) may develop an interest, including gymnastics, archery, baseball, track and field, and so much more.
Learn the basics of the game. Soccer is one of the most popular sports around the world. Enrolling your kid in soccer lessons will teach them basic gameplay rules, tactical concepts and strategy of the sport. Parents can rest assured knowing that teams are organized according to age and ability level, so kids can learn the game alongside teammates that complement them well. Before you know it, your child may aspire to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo!
Camaraderie and sportsmanship. When a child enrolls in soccer lessons, they also join a team. Learning how to work together toward a shared goal, and being a supportive ally to fellow team members is an essential foundation for kids' future success in school, extra-curricular activities, and the workforce. Kids have the opportunity to experience community, learn from one another and lift each other up. What’s more, soccer lessons are an excellent opportunity for them to make friends outside of the classroom. So often, childhood friends become friends for life.
Rewarding personal growth. As a child improves in the sport, progresses in a particular skill or demonstrates sportsmanship, they’ll earn recognition from their coach, other parents and fellow teammates. This can improve confidence and self-esteem. They also—perhaps most importantly—learn the value of this process for themselves. Setting achievable goals, and taking the time to celebrate successes during childhood can be foundational to the development of resilience, spirit, and courage which can be carried into adulthood.

Reduced screen time. These days, one of the most difficult tasks for a parent is to peel their kids' eyes away from their iPad or phone. Soccer lessons give kids a chance to unplug, disconnect, and experience time outside. High levels of screen time can lead to eye strain and less time for physical activity. Getting kids excited about a hobby or pastime like soccer gets them on the right track for adulthood.
