  • Just as active as other sports.

    This common sport is very physically demanding and is always a popular sport almost everywhere you go. Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. Soccer requires a lot of talent and knowledge of the sport but anyone can play it. Like other active sports you can get hurt.
    EX. Football and wrestling are active and sometimes dangerous, just like soccer.

  • Soccer is an athletic sport!

    Soccer teaches kids more skills that they need in high school, and it is simply healthy for you! Yes, track and field you run. But not like in soccer. In soccer you change pace, sprint, jog. Practice is also a lot more fun. Yet, in track/field it's only running. Mind you, I'm not saying track/field is a bad sport. It is the second best opportunity to get prepared for high school soccer, but not first.
    Soccer has a lot of running and could decrease the amount of overweight jr. High kids, and get them wanting to play in high school, which will increase there health over all. If you were to introduce soccer in high school, only kids who had been playing soccer since rec would want to make it. Also, it would increase the skill level of the high school team making the high school they go to have better players.

  • I say yes

    I know in the area I work in there are low numbers for soccer when they do get to the high school level. I believe if there were an opportunity to show or gain some interest in soccer in middle school, there would be high numbers participating at the high school competition level. With this interest shown early on we could begin to 1.) Teach them the skills needed to perform at the high school level 2.) Give them a chance to compete in something if they are not interested in other sports offered 3.) Really hit home that academics are important and if we truly make that connection with academics and sports, I believe most would understand. Student-athletes are students 1st and athletes 2nd.

    These are just a few reasons I believe middle schools everywhere should have a soccer team.

  • Soccer is Great

    Soccer is the most popular sport in the world. It is played by people of all ages, genders and nationalities. It should very much be a part of middle school culture. There is nothing overly dangerous or problematic associated with children playing soccer before being fully developed, so there is no reason to delay.

  • Yes for Soccer

    Yes middle schools have a soccer team becaue alopt of people like to play soccer and its not fair for people to have the sports they want like baseball and basketball what about soccerr its not fair! Not fair at all! I think we should be aloud because alot and i mean alot of kids and even adults like the sport soccer they like to play it and they like to watch it!

  • Because it gives kids different varieties of things they can do and I think that would decrease the obese kids percentage.

    Soccer is a very fun sport that not every kid has tried and that would be a sport that anyone can play there are different positions. And it would decrease the percentage of the obese kids in schools. It would give kids just another sport they might like that they might be good at.

  • Soccer should become an offical sport in middle school

    You have to study hard. "School teams usually require students to maintain a high grade-point average in order to compete, which can be a strong incentive," says Michael Lewis, journalist and author of "Soccer for Dummies." You also stay fit and increase your stamina and strength.
    Soccer should become a sport!

  • No For Soccer

    No because of all the injuries there are in soccer and if someone gets a concussion they wont be participating in school and also ankle injuries, knee, shins, calf, and shoulder muscle inures. I don't know what else to say even though I have a strong opinion that soccer should not be a middle school sport.
