How to play soccer...

My kid stinks....
Remember this point.
Everyone, and we mean everyone "stunk" at soccer at some point. Even Pele' was horrible when he first tried it. It is a long learning process.

Young superstars are often superstars because the are bigger and faster than others. It is not always skill.

The skinny little kid that works on ball handling everyday in his backyard will blossom into a better player. He will have developed the skills early on and then grown physically into a player.

Working on basic skills such as dribbling, passing, kicking and general ball handling will create the great player later on.   

Be patient and remember that a soccer players growth cycle is ten years.
