Someone speaks to you, on more than one occasion, It has been listed as a geek Grassroots. I've spent years watching football basis for different reasons, from single family to enjoy leisure and see how children from 4 few years playing your favorite sport without more aspiration than to have fun, or not? Or they have other different aspirations? But who? They? Parents? Or coaches?.
It is not difficult to approach any football on a Saturday morning and watch several football games 8 and soccer 11. A great pleasure to see this sport in its purest form, real football, forgetting large contracts, televisions, budgeting, and earlier ages, We should forget even the result. But unfortunately neither is complicated watch, as either bands (which they are the coaches and parents who are) nerves are lost too easily forgetting completely what we had gone to the field, which it is that the kids could have fun and have a good time.
There are numerous articles that discussed how to behave a parent or a coach copy, explaining that many children eventually left football because of pressure from their parents and / or coaches, it's sad, but this happens a lot more than we think. I see also obliged to say, we should not generalize, I have seen many examples parents, a lot of, that they are dedicated solely to encourage their children (even the rest of the team mates and those of the opposing team) and that an end is that your child enjoy this beautiful sport and, on the way, why not say, they also enjoy.
And as, it would be unfair not to comment too, I have seen examples of coaches, that really they worry that children learn, to educate in victory and in defeat, who worry that children get to know the sport from within, the da igual, exactly the same, the result and make them see the children that the important thing is to play and try to get it right.
Obviously everyone likes to win, but not at any price ... Fortunately there are still coaches and football schools who can see beyond the result, which may explain after a victory that has become a bad game and they do see the children after a defeat that has played a good game. It seems so simple and obvious, true? because unfortunately there are father and coaches who think the result is what counts.
Recent weeks is very fashionable to talk about violence in football fields, but when we heard that phrase in the mass media, the 99% cases relate to large football fields, those where the stars we see on TV play, those where many sometimes pay a fortune to see their idols.
Sincerely, I think the problem, again, begins at the base, begins when you go to see kids games 8 years and you see that people behave exactly like; in these fields, in those where there are usually just parents and relatives of players, there are madmen who insist on trying to explain to the referee very bad ways how badly does, without realizing that, In most cases, The referee is also a child who spends most old and, as someone said to me not long ago at the foot of a football field 8, "But what interests they believe it may have the arbitrator to win either team?. The kid will beep what you see, it is not easy ".
Also you have to yell at the coach dubiously acceptable way what they think you should do at all times, Y, as, crossing the line more to try to sink the children of the opposing team getting to them as if it were a final of the Champions League, It seems incredible but true ... I have seen a child 9 years crying out for a soccer field because the grandfather of a child of the opposing team insisted on machacarle throughout the game.
Maybe it's because people use football (even their children) to let off steam and take all that adrenaline retaining the week, perhaps because some want their son in football do what they were not able to do, perhaps because many think that your child is the perfect opportunity to get rich and stop working, perhaps because many are not able to understand that this is only a game, or perhaps because (as someone told me there) grassroots football is a reflection of the society in which we live, or perhaps simply because it joins more than one of the above factors.
Either way, or by whatever, If viewers are (especially if you're the father of one of the players), If you are a judge or coach, recalls that the important thing is children, the education of children through sport, because if together we are able to approach it properly this sport has much to contribute to the education of our children, but for that we must be an example for children and, on the way, sure this youth football can find good people with whom to talk about football in a civilized and, why not? Get to have good friends that maybe someday may be able to establish your own club fulfilling these values, Who knows?.
So from here I would ask all of you, If you do not do, occasionally you approach a party grassroots and enjoy it, but for which you do and remember, ye may agree or disagree with the referee, think that the coach is right or not, if your son plays less minutes than think it deserves, the most important thing is not to pay the child.
