BENEFITS OF SOCCER
Here’s a few life lessons/ skills we hope your athlete has learned or will learn through their time with Real Football Academy
Being able to function as part of a successful team is one of the most important lessons any child can learn. They may not always work as part of a larger group, but being able to relate to, trust and communicate with others will serve them well.
A player’s self-control must extend beyond the physical requirement of passing accurately, controlling the ball and working for good field position. Children with strong, healthy self-discipline almost always do better in life.
Humans have a strong need to grow and improve. Soccer helps children get started on the right foot with good goal-setting habits, based on things that can be measured. For example, you can set goals to increase running speed, to improve ball control or work on improving stamina.
Soccer not only teaches children that hard work is required to achieve results, but that hard work does not necessarily guarantee success. It’s a tough lesson to learn, but even though children who work hard may not always achieve more than those who do not, they are generally more satisfied with what they achieve.
