Why Soccer… This unit incorporates all of the aspects of physical education, from the curriculum requirements, to the overall healthy growth of the child. This unit promotes physical health as it incorporates the components of fitness such as cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular endurance, and flexibility, as well as speed, balance, agility, and much more. It fosters emotional and social well-being as it incorporates the components of teamwork, such as communication and cooperation, as well as many other valuable life-skills. It also promotes mental health as it is both enjoyable and challenging! Soccer can be inexpensive, given the numerous programs available, and the little equipment needed. It can be played anyone; Age, sex, and ability are not limiting factors! It can be competitive and time-consuming, it can be less competitive and only once a week, or it can be pick-up in your own backyard. Soccer can be modified in many ways in order to accommodate those who are playing, whether it be the rules, the field size, the type of ball, and so on. It can be played indoor or outdoors. Lastly, soccer provides many opportunities for the future, professional or not: player, coach, manager, trainer, sports-writer, equipment manufacturer, sports complex owner and operators, or just a die-hard fan. All of these positions can be formed into anything from prosperous careers or a simple favourite past-time.
This is a mystery, after all, soccer has 4 passionate fan bases in the US: 1) immigrants arrived from soccer mad countries (S.America, Africa, Europe, etc.) 2) women under the age of 55 3) kids now participating in community/school programs that have embraced soccer because it is inexpensive, co-educational, for anyone 4) Kids passing through these programs in big numbers for >20 yrs. Thus, the first cohort is now in its mid twenties and in possession of the disposal income to support a local club and a national league. The Mystery: Soccer does not rank in top 20 sports!! HOWEVER…Things are looking up! This is good news. Soccer is a dynamic game. Soccer is all about pattern recognition on the fly. One of the real pleasures of the game is watching patterns form and reform on the field as these two little universes reconfigure themselves in a spectacular display of "sense and respond".
