Playing Soccer With Your Family And Friends

By: Jim Brown

Most families will learn how to play soccer and other sports together. The eldest children might learn what the object of soccer is through their school athletic program, and then they can pass on this information to their siblings. They might choose to tell them that the object of the game of soccer is to get the ball into the other team's goal and leave it at that.

Some siblings might know a little bit about the game of soccer and feel feisty enough to add their own comments about the scoring system that is used. When family and friends play soccer together, they are sure to share the information with each other at some point during the game and some might even know a little bit about soccer before a game is ever mentioned.

Some of the kids have learned to find out about such things before playing their siblings in a game of soccer because they want to make sure that they have a fair chance at winning a game or two. They make it a point to know what they have to do to score a point, and how many points it takes to win. They learned that a team who delivers a ball into the opposing team's goal will earn a point, and the team that gets two points ahead of the other team wins the game.

There are some things that friends and family members need to know before starting a game of soccer. Most of them will already know that they need a soccer ball which is colored black and white. Some family members in the past tried to use a football and it did not work out very well for them. The goals for playing soccer should be soccer goals but families have learned to improvise over the years.

Some family members feel that soccer can only be played on a soccer field. If it was a professional game of soccer this might be true, but a soccer game can actually be played on any type of field that has enough open space. Some people have backyards that are large enough to play soccer and families will usually allow people to come over and watch the action on the soccer field.

Most families like the idea of not having to leave home to play soccer. This makes it a lot easier for friends to meet and spend the entire afternoon playing soccer if they want to before they have to break the action to go home and eat their dinner. Some families make it a point to play soccer regularly because it gives everyone a chance to catch up with what is happening in each other's lives.
