"Avoid yelling verbs. When you're watching a competition you should enthusiastically support all the players. Cheer their effort and successes, but if you are yelling verbs like run,throw,kick,pass, you are coaching."

"Your children's youth sports experience will end, and it may happen suddenly. Hopefully, you will not look back and think, "I wish I had enjoyed it more instead of obsessing over performance, or playing time or the team's record." Enjoy the experience; it will end too soon."

Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up."
To be the ultimate team, you must use your body and your mind. Draw up on the resources of your teammates. Choose your steps wisely and you will win. Remember, only teams succeed.
We are what we repeatedly do
is not an act but a habit
If you don't know where you are going,
you'll end up someplace else.
If you ever think you have had a tough time of it,
things haven't gone your way
or you are feeling sorry for yourself
take 6 minutes out of your life and watch this video...
I am sure you will find it quite inspiring

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"its a simple thing, just a ball and a goal
once every 4 years that simple thing drastically changes the world
closes the schools, closes the shops, closes the city, stops a war
a simple ball fuels the passion and pride of nations
gives people everywhere something to hope for
gives countries respect where respect is in short supply
achieves more than the politicians ever could
Once every 4 years a ball does the impossible
And if history means anything, the world as we know it is about to

I like rules and men working hard and using the limits of their talents to win. A man using excuses and not performing cannot play for me. You never know how close you are to making it, so you always have to try harder all the time.

What is love? Love is being the new kid on the team. Love is working your a** off just to get the coaches attention. Love is wearing a new pair of shoes every season. Love is the feeling of winning a big game. Love is the motavation from losing a big game. Love is balancing school and the sport you enjoy so much. Love is getting that clutch goal, making that clutch tackle and making that extra run down the line. Love is not quitting after you make a mistake, turning around and working extra hard on that. Love is going to the gym or running extra on your own time. Love is that extra mile you ran just to make sure your fit. Love is game winners. Love is winning state cup, and thats what we are set out to do.

Robert Huth about John Terry:
"It's brilliant playing next to him. Everyone knows how good he is and I keep on learning from him and Ricardo Carvalho. He talks you through the game and let's you know the situation around you and helps you out. That's very important playing in that position. Sometimes you get an awkward ball, where you're not sure what to do. You need someone like him to tell you whether to put it in the stands or pull it down."

Reporter- You never look Tired Frank. Its amazing watching you week in and week out.
“I feel it sometimes, I mean everyone does, I mean it’s only normal. I mean I try, I’ve rested in between games this week and that’s what I tend to do and in the games I try to give as much and give it everything I can and when I come off the pitch I try to be as tired as I can because then I know I’ve given it all I can and today that was important for all 11 men out there and really push themselves and make sure we got the result.”

A mother was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her teenage son. Suddenly the boy bursts into the kitchen.
"Careful! CAREFUL! Put in some more butter!
Oh my goodness! You're cooking too many at once.
TOO MANY! Turn them!
TURN THEM NOW!
We need more butter.
Oh my! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER?
They're going to STICK!
Careful! ... CAREFUL!
I said be CAREFUL!
You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up!
Are you CRAZY?
Have you LOST your mind?
Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them.
Use the salt. USE THE SALT!! THE SALT!!!
The mother stared at him. "What's wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?"
The son calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm trying to play soccer.Submitted by Kelli Duranti 12/2/05
For me, winning isn't something that happens suddenly on the field when
the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds
physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that
you dream.Submitted by Victor Sanchez 11/24/05
I would play in the pouring rain, in a foot of snow, in the dark, in the heat, in the middle of the street with an old flat ball. I would play with my friends or my worst enemies. I would play barefoot with a broken arm, a sprained ankle, or a torn ACL. I would play in a stadium packed with people or in the quiet of my own backyard. I would play if you paid me, or if I had to pay you. I would play anywhere, anytime, against anyone. Just give me a ball and I'll give you a game...
