    To all the players in RLS, have a fun and enjoyable year.

    To all the adults, please remember the number one reason kids play, to have fun, winning is a distant priority.

    There was an athletic survey done in Canada from 20,000+ kids across the country which asked each and every one of them “Why do you participate in sports?” Here are their top 10 results:
    1. To have fun
    2. To improve their skills
    3. To stay in shape
    4. To do something they are good at
    5. The excitement of the competition
    6. To get exercise
    7. To play as part of a team
    8. The challenge of competition
    9. To learn new skills
    10. To win
    It’s also a fact that 65% of kids participate in soccer to be with friends.
    “Why do kids quit sports?”
    IT WASN’T FUN ANYMORE – 70% of all kids in all sports quit by the age of 13
