Soccer My Sport

Sports are the best way to pass time or to just have fun. I love sports they make you feel better and less stress. My favorite sport is soccer; it is a great sport because you play with a team and friends.

Soccer is well rounded there are some rules that you have to follow, they are not complicated. For me soccer keeps me out of trouble and in shape and healthy. You should always pick a sport that you like you never know you might be great at it. Playing with a team it is required to have eleven players, it includes goalkeeper, so in the field there should be twenty-two. There are referees that keep the game going and save. When you play with a friend you don’t need a referee. A referee is the official of the game that will apply the rules of soccer. You have fun with your buddies when playing at school, parks or just out in the neighborhood. Soccer is played all over the world, no one is left out. People use cans when they don’t have a soccer ball and have fun because they are playing with the people they like and feel good. During the time of play which is forty-five minutes, you should try to score on the opposite side. You should never hurt anyone from the other team the referee will enforce the rules and call a foul. You need to wear your shin guards which help protect your feet. When you play fair and win a great match you feel so happy and proud of yourself.

He decided to show the student on how to play safe and at the same time have fun. The first time he tried to make them play only two kids played with him and the older kids decided to play...
