Give Thanks To The Creator Of Soccer

by : Jim Brown

Most people have no idea who invented soccer but the have that person in the back of their minds every time their child scores a goal. Other parents think about that person when their child gets an excellent rating on their physical fitness exam. Parents thank the creator of soccer every time the rules are recited by fans to referees during the game because it is good indicator to let them know that they memory is fully intact.

Many parents do not care how the rules were made up. They do care about whether their child follows those rules to the last detail when they are active on the playing field and the goal they just scored is in question. There are many times when the parents think about the way things might have been if soccer had never been created. Then they dash that thought and are thankful that their child has been kept busy enough to not become addicted to drugs or to become a member of a gang.

Playing soccer is a fun and exciting way to spend the day. If soccer did not exist then children might not learn about competitive sports and how much fun that could be had playing it several times a week. Soccer also offers some of the best entertainment options for a child, and parents are just thankful that the soccer game allows their children to play amongst friends instead of the streets.

Parents know that their children have truly grown both physically and emotionally during this soccer season. Their minds are sharper because of the amount of mental energy that is required to play this competitive sport. They have also noticed that when the soccer player is at home, he is no longer content to sit still in their bedroom alone playing video games for hours on end.

What they see everyday at home is a beautiful sight. They see a child who has untapped energy resources and a new vigor that they have not witnessed in many years. This unforgettable energy is replenished every time they play in a soccer game and the charged up attitudes that come from a game of soccer are positive in all respects and they have also displayed a remarkable improvement in the grades that they get in school.

Parents are truly thankful that they enrolled their child in a soccer sports program for the summer. They know where their child will be during their gym class at school next year. Many schools are beginning to offer soccer as an intramural sport and the game of soccer is gaining just as much respect among parents circles as football does during the school year.
