I believe that the game of soccer is just that...a game. Winning should not be the primary objective, but rather be the result of hard work, mastering fundamental ball skills and gaining a true understanding of the game. Playing to win doesn't mean that winning is the "end-all", but it is an important component of success. Players, (and parents for that matter) need to keep a balance and perspective while we build toward winning and success. I believe that there must be an emphasis of having fun when working with the younger players. If children do not have fun learning to play soccer, they will soon give up or come to dislike the game.
