School is like soccer,study hard you get an A+ Practice hard,you score at the winning Game.

Sports [teach you that] it is good to compete
good to run,good to sweat,good to get dirty,good to feel tired and healthy and refreshed. - Martina Navratilova ( same applies for school)


Schools [ teach you that] its good to study
good to learn,good to have fun,good to socialize,good to use the best of your ability,and good for to you apply for the rest of your life.


1] As with classroom lessons, many soccer drills fail to 'engage' participants.

2] Like the chalkboard/smart board, many skills are practiced with the active involvement of only one person at a time.

3] Just as most students are required to be on the same page at the same time, youth soccer sees most players follow the ball as a 'hive' in lieu of playing independent positions.

4] If things aren't interesting enough, the kids will find their own entertainment to replace game/practice activities.

5] Similar to the anticipation of recess, the highlight of most games is the half-time snack break!

Practice makes perfect, no doubt about that. I can be easy to get distracted at times but if you stay focused then you can succeed.

Nice guide BB. It is simple but it gets the point across.

This is a cool guide. Good comparison between school and soccer. And when you really do think about it, it's a perfect comparison.

Never had I related school to soccer (I like soccer WAY more :) ) but it actually does make a whole lot of sense. I never would have pointed these similarities out in my own head so thanks for doing it for me!
