Unfortunately my kids play soccer. Now I love to watch good soccer as much as anyone (reference: Spain embarrassing Germany) but youth soccer is mostly random booting, pinball played on a big, grassy field. If I'm going to be forced to watch them play they're going to do it with skill and technique.
To that end we host Brazilian coaches every summer. Brazilians are widely known as the masters of soccer. They all came out of the Brazilian youth academies and are on scholarship here. The coaches spend the summer here in Rochester coaching local youth teams and hanging out at our house. It's crazy but we love it, they've become family:
So if you're going to learn soccer get yourself some Brazilians. If you want to be a better developer come to dW and read our articles, participate in our communities, blogs, forums, wikis etc etc.
PS: That is a real Kaka jersey signed by Kaka. Junior's brother played professionally with Kaka's little brother.
