Varsity Men’s Soccer
Every game there are forty-four cleats on the field. There are over twenty players on the varsity men’s soccer team this year. Each player works just as hard as the next to make the season great. This year our soccer team is doing well; we are currently 6-5-1. They have had lots of success and a few losses.
For most people, success is winning a game, but for the men’s soccer team it is more than that. It means meeting and surpassing their pre-season goals, improving from where they were at the beginning of the season to where they are now, and most importantly it means getting along with your teammates and having good chemistry.
It takes a lot of work to be successful in soccer, which is why lots of preparation needs to happen before game day. As Coach Todd said, “Mental preparation begins and ends as our most important team prep.” Practices and team strategy sessions are key to visualization and having success and translating the team objectives for every game. However, the team would not be as successful if it was not for their coach. Coach Todd helps the players in many ways; when asked what skills it takes to be a perfect coach to work with our team he said, “I am not a perfect coach; the experience is a great teacher, and I am always looking for ways to improve, new ideas and trying to make every season a great one for the players. Communication is key and every player has an open door to voice concerns, opinions, ideas, and all things that matter.” Coach Todd works hard to make sure the team is always doing their best and making sure all their hopes for the season come true.
Succeeding in soccer may be difficult, but it is nothing our team can’t handle. We may be 6-5-1, but we still have many games left to play. With the support of Coach Todd and the camaraderie of the team, we are guaranteed to win our future games, leading us to success!
