My school only has a basketball, baseball, football and track team but I really would like to have a soccer team at my school and so would other kids. Is there any way my school can have a soccer team?
Hey sportschick2003There could be a bunch of reasons why your school doesn't have a soccer team, but none of them should stop you from getting a team started. There may not be any teachers at your school who are willing to coach a team, there may not be enough other schools in your area with soccer teams to play against or your school may not realize that there's a lot of kids who would like to start a soccer team.
If you and your peeps want to get a team going, you can make it happen. Ask your P.E. teacher or principal if they would like to coach a soccer team, or if they know another teacher who would be interested in coaching. Tell them that a bunch of kids at the school would like to play and are willing to commit to attending regular practices and games. Even if there aren't other schools in the area for you to play against, your coach could still run practices and organize scrimmages with the kids at your school. If there's enough kids who want to play soccer at your school, there should be a teacher who's able to help them get a team started.
