Do your kids play any team sports? Our boys have played all kinds of sports from soccer to baseball, and the oldest has played some football throughout the years.
We love our kids’passion for sports. Being on a team is fun, exciting, and time-consuming. Kids look forward to it! These days playing sports is really something huge for kids. When I was younger, not so much, but now there are so many options and even sports teams to be a part of. Playing on a sports team builds a lot of really amazing skills no matter the age. Our boys have made many friends, enjoyed and learned something wonderful, and the camaraderie built is truly amazing. It is really a rewarding experience for both kids and adults alike!
Soccer is so multicultural. It is watched and played by families, and is very popular. Did you also know that last year alone nine million kids played in soccer leagues? Now that is a lot of kids!
Target has made a major investment in U.S. soccer that marks our largest-ever push into team sports. This includes becoming an Official Partner of Major League Soccer, the jersey sponsor for Minnesota United FC and the Official Retailer of US Youth Soccer. Additionally. Target also provided a grant to the U.S. Soccer Foundation. On top of that Target has a fast-growing soccer product assortment like soccer balls, shin guards, and goals. Last year alone Target sold one million soccer balls! We certainly head to Target for stocking up on all of our soccer needs.
When my boys were smaller my husband coached their soccer team. We still enjoy the pictures. I never realized how both physical and mental the game was. These kids took is so seriously. The look of determination was classic and priceless. Did you know that soccer has actually been a popular sport since the early 1970’s? Soccer has been around for longer than that but has been a leading sport for kids and adults for so many years.
