2019 QCSA Coaching Theme
There is No "I" in Team – Soccer (Football) is a Team Sport
Soccer is a team sport, which helps players and spectators to connect to it. Coaches play a vital role in ensuring each player feels they are part of the team by supporting, guiding and mentoring them.
In soccer, players need to rely on each of their teammates and not only on their skill. Fans go to the stadiums not just to see the Lionel Messi’s or Cristiano Ronaldo’s, they go to watch their team play. Individual players make differences, but it is the team that wins — not just the player. There is no "I" in team, but there is an "E" for Everyone. A team achieves more when everyone contributes.
The greatest feeling in the world is when you’re on that soccer field, and you know your team is going to succeed because you look around and see 10 of your best friends playing beside you.
In 2019 as coaches, let us all make a determined effort to ensure there is no "I" in the teams we coach but an "E" for everyone.
