As our kids wrap up their soccer seasons, most of them are beginning to think about their next sport. Many of our players will start basketball. Steve Kerr, legendary Warriors coach, is a huge soccer fan (Liverpool is his team, in case you were curious!). In a recent interview, Kerr talks about how similar basketball and soccer are and how he thinks that ALL youth basketball players should also play soccer because it translates directly. Kerr says that playing soccer allows players to see triangles and also learn how to pass and move, which in turn creates scoring opportunities.
As your child moves onto the next sports season, realize that your player’s soccer development doesn’t necessarily stop when the season ends! Your child’s soccer development continues as she learns and grows in other sports, too. Check out the interview here.
Best of luck to our U9 and U10 teams that are continuing on in State Cup play in Manteca this coming weekend! Only ONE home game this coming weekend:
Saturday, November 16, 12:00pm – U13 Boys vs. Empire
