Life Skills Soccer Programs
First Touch Soccer (FTS) offers a variety of programing designed to teach core values and important life skills. The goal of our program is for children and youth to learn:
1. Core values and life skills, including: respect, responsibility, effort, determination, cooperation and self-control,
2. That life skills are the key to how we succeed in the different environments in which we live; school, home, sports, community, and
3. That life skills are transferable skills, i.e. we may learn a particular life skill in one environment but we are able to use it in all of the other environments in which we live. For example, one may learn determination through the time and hard work one puts into mastering the skill of juggling in soccer and then apply the new mental skill (determination) to improving one’s skills in math.
