The sun is shining.
As the whistle blows the players take the field.
The players are pumping with energy as the game starts.
The whistle blows, first half is over.
Players take the field once again.
Running down the field, I received the pass.
My foot connects with the ball.
Flying through the air the ball finds the back of the net.
We win the game.

A Poem for Soccer Players

Figure it out for yourself,
You've all that the greatest have had;
Two arms, two hands, two legs, two eyes,
And a brain to use if you would be wise.
With this equipment they all began --
So start from the top and say, "I can."

Look them over, the wise and the great,
They take their food from a common plate,
And similar knives and forks they use,
With similar laces they tie their shoes.
The world considers them brave and smart,
But you've all they had when they made their start.

You are the handicap you must face,
You are the one who must choose your place.
You must say where you want to go,
How much you will study, the truth to know.
God has equipped you for life, but he
Will let you decide what you want to be.

Courage must come from the soul within,
You must furnish the will to win.
So figure it out for yourself,
You were born with all that the great have had;
With your equipment they all began,
So get hold of yourself and say, "I can."


Before the Match:

I love you
Good luck
Have fun

After the Match:

I love you
It was great to see you play
What would you like to eat?


Remember, the name of the game is sportsmanship.



Game, goal post, fun
Kicking, running, jumping
Kicking the ball to make a goal
