Sportsmanship Corner: Soccer for our kids HAS to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience or we as parents, coaches, administrators are doing something wrong. And that means every practice, every minikicker activity, every game, and especially the competitive league and tournament events win, lose or draw HAS to be thoroughly enjoyable. This week's tip is "no names". Please refrain from calling out the players name during the course of play. The players need to think for themselves, free from distractions.
Enjoy this article by Donna Olmstead from Soccer America "What to do about M's father?" at http://www.usyouthsoccer.org/the_consequences_of_negative_parents/ where she highlights just how damaging a poor attitude can be on this thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Stay tuned and visit our site often.
