Soccer (also known as football) is a sport which consists of 11 players. These players are divided into strikers, goalkeepers and defenders. The main purpose in soccer is to work as a team to score as many goals as the team can. Each score equals one point.
Soccer is a fun game and does not acquire many rules to follow, but it acquires long hours of continual practice and working as a team to achieve its purpose.
The soccer league usually starts in term 3 but learners who which to play can start practicing early during the course of the year. Practice times are three to four times a week after school until 16:00. As soon as the soccer league starts the matches will be organised once a week. More info will follow after the first soccer meeting.
Girls are also welcome to join the soccer league. Girls must let the organiser know so that the team can be registered for that season.
So far, there are two boys’ teams in the soccer league (the first team and junior team).
WHAT DO I BRING TO PRACTICE?
Soccer players must bring their own soccer boots, gloves, a soccer ball and other appropriate gear to play.
You will not exercise in your school uniform. Please bring comfortable exercise clothes to practice on the field.
We have a talented coach who is passionate about soccer and gives good advice to players to perform well.
DO I QUALIFY TO BE ON THE TEAM?
We wish to invite all players who want to be part of the school’s soccer team to inform the organiser.
We want 11 players who are committed to attend all practices and who want to be on the team and who aim to be involved 100%.
Soccer requires skill, hard work, commitment and working together. Without those factors to stand on, the team will crumple and fall.
