How do school cuts affect soccer ability?
Well, if you’re looking forward to your child having a great PE teacher, it might get a lot harder to do. Even in the wealthier neighborhoods of Santa Clara Valley like Saratoga, Los Gatos and Campbell school districts are cutting back. You can read about it here.
PE will be one of the first to go.
It really comes down to who is going to be in charge of showing your child a fit and healthy lifestyle? If you’re counting on the schools to do it, you will be mistaken.
So reach out and start to play with your child. Do strength exercises as well as balance and coordination. Make it fun and challenging. Make it a game.
By doing these things you’ll be taking up the slack the schools left.
And to get you started on what and how to do it, be sure to get your hands on my Athletic Skills for Soccer Program. It will show you what and how to do it.
Who knows…maybe you’ll be the PE coach!
