YMCA Youth Soccer Program

YMCA Youth Soccer Program


Every day in my job, I see kids making progress
and being more confident and coming back to the Y, and this is because they enjoy coming
to our programs. My name is Zoran, and I’m a soccer instructor
at the YMCA. The soccer program is allowing kids to learn
the basic fundamentals of the soccer game. All skills, activities are designed to apply
to every ability. Definitely, the kids will be confident after
coming to the YMCA to play outside the YMCA as well, and to be able to score, to be able
to defend, to be able to pass the ball — they will be confident doing that. Soccer itself is a team sport, which means
that they mostly will work together as a team to achieve a goal. The soccer will be moved into everyday life,
because it’s a unique situation: you need to, in the same second, think about who you’re
going to cover, who you’re going to pass, and that’s going to help them for critical
thinking later in their life. Coming to the soccer program and getting out
the most of it — which means the fundamentals, the leadership, being active, finding the
way to progress through trying the activities and trying slightly different — will definitely
make them stronger, and will walk away and will have a great memory from the Y.
