Most of the parents and coaches at the game know that the match is for you and they support you. However, some adults forget that it’s just a game. While you don’t want to be disrespectful, you should try and tune out what people off the field are saying. Your attention must be on your teammates and what’s happening on the field.
You know from playing the game that win, lose or draw, it’s the game and the competition you like. Yes, it is exciting to win a match and a bummer to lose one; yet no matter how the game goes you’d rather be playing soccer than not. Sometimes adults forget this and they only focus on getting trophies. Remind them from time to time that playing the game is what counts. Always give your best whenever you play. Remember that soccer is a player’s game and play the game for you.
