    • Hi Emma! I enjoyed reading this. I agree that soccer is a good sport. I would also argue that soccer helps to teach kids values such as teamwork and work ethic. Do you experience having to work on your teamworking skills or on your work ethic when you play soccer? Has this stretched you as a person? Thank you for sharing your feelings!

    • Hello Emma! I agree, soccer is a great sport that has lots of benefits. Soccer is an exciting way to meet new people, exercise, and develop the ability to work in and with a team. Thank you for your opinions and your willingness to take charge and try to get soccer added to the list of after school sports. Keep up the good work!

    • Dear Emma,

      I really enjoyed reading your post about why schools should offer girls and boys soccer in schools. I completely agree that these main sports should be available to students. A place to get out and both meet people as well as become passionate about a sport is important for all kids. It is essential to being a well-rounded student.

      Thanks for sharing!
