1Hey Coach,
I want to play better soccer but I don't know how to. My dribbling and passing skills are fine. My goal scoring and assists are very good too with my old team. But when I play with players that I'm not used to playing with, I never get the ball and it frustrates me. I'm always open in strategic positions and I know I can be very effective with the soccer ball. I try communicating with my teammates but they'd still prefer to pass to players who they are comfortable with. What on earth am I supposed to do to make myself more appealing to pass to?

Hey frizzyann

Playing for a new team can be a big adjustment for both the new player and his or her new teammates. You probably feel a bit left out on the field because you don't know very many of the other players and aren't getting a lot of passes. But don't worry - even the best athletes in the world can have trouble adjusting to a new team. It took David Beckham a few games to learn how to play with his new teammates when he moved from Manchester United to Real Madrid and you can bet it will take Shaq a while to feel comfortable playing with the Miami Heat when the 2004 NBA season gets underway.

Your new teammmates aren't aware of your abilities yet and they're more comfortable passing to teammates they've been playing with for a while. As you continue to play with your new team, you and your teammates will get to know each other more, and feel more confident passing to each other. Once your teammates see how you can help the team, you'll start to get the ball a lot more and have a chance for your soccer skills to shine.

Do you need tips or advice on sports, fitness or health? to the Kidzworld Coach. Keep in mind peeps, the Kidzworld Coach isn't a doctor or a professional athlete or anything like that. He's just a dude who digs sports, plays 'em and knows a lot about 'em. You should always talk to your 'rents, a doctor or your school gym teacher before starting a new sport or a new exercise.
