An Oakland principal recently stated that he expects all adults on campus, including teachers, lunch and custodial staff, and even himself to be teachers. After all, \”It takes a village to raise a child.\” So are all adults associated with soccer being good teachers?\” The answer is, \”Yes\” but there is room for improvement.
In soccer, as in life, players should be good sports. Nobody likes a poor sport. Referees are no exception. Players that show good sportsmanship during a game could possibly, just maybe get a favorable call.
