Hi, my name is Fred and welcome to Junior Soccer Stars. This website is all about educating parents and their kids about soccer, the Beautiful Game. All soccer stars started somewhere in their young years and develop their skills throughout the years to get to where they are now.
Some started in the streets, some in their backyards, and some in soccer academies. This is the most important stage in soccer development of a child where the foundation of strong characters are built, proper skills are nurtured, and stars are born.
My Humble Story
I am a senior engineer by profession working for a local ISP (Internet Service Provider). I am the father of three boys and two girls all of which love to play soccer.
This is not surprising as I played soccer for the last 30 years since primary, secondary school. My favorite position is defending in the right-backs. Due to work demand, I don’t play as much as I would like.
Nowadays I am a spectator cheering for Tottenham FC on TV or joining my kids in the back yard. Soccer is the official game in the family.
Although I never make it to the local team’s first eleven, I played soccer a lot those days. It was mostly with my work colleagues on weekends with BBQ (and a few beers) and corporate competitions. It is good for team building, networking, and for one’s health too.
Soccer injuries do happen and most can be prevented if we follow some common-sense rules, like a warm-up! I got injured a couple of times but mostly because of the lack of warm-up, bad dieting, poor equipment, etc.
As a parent, I sometimes got worried when I see my kids play soccer. But with good knowledge about exercise, diet, and ensuring your kid wear safety gears properly, these worries can be put to rest.
Why Do I Want To Help Parents?
I gained a lot of experience in playing soccer and you will find most that are evident in my posts. Junior Soccer Stars aims to provide simple and fun educational support to parents and kids who loved soccer.
This means the posts on this website should be simple enough for a kid to understand and filled with fun tips to enjoy. Also, without all the technical jargon and hard words thrown at you, so much so you need a dictionary by your side.
So, this website is all about education, fun, and safety for all parents and kids who loved soccer. They called soccer the “Beautiful Game” and it should as simple as that.
Who knows, maybe someday your youngster could be the next Lionel Messi or Hope Solo.
If you ever need a hand or have a question, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
