With apologies to Robert Fulghum

Everything I learned I learned from Soccer:

1. Friends playing together is a beautiful thing. When you understand what other want, it is easier to get what you want. Does your teammate probably want to pass, dribble, shoot, or just make a run? If I know what he/she wants I can more easily enable his or her success with that option. This makes him/her more effective and, that's when I get what I want.

2. Don't hit.

3. Run. Fast. And always give space to others.

4. The Hall monitor/referee is always right. It is just a game. It doesn't matter, but how you act does.

5. Share. I mean pass.

6. It is O.K. if the spotlight finds you, but don't go looking for it.
