Soccer Club

The Saturday Soccer Club is coming to an end. With only 3 meetings left, I wanted to take a moment to share how enjoyable it has been for me to work and play with the student-athletes who took the time to come get some exercise, build their soccer skills, and most importantly have some fun. A majority of participants have shown an improvement in their skills and ability to play the game as well as an improvement in their ability to communicate and work together to achieve (or score!) a common goal. The attitude of the Saturday Soccer Club progressed positively as weeks went on. At first, students were not comfortable communicating with each other and might even get down on a fellow teammate if something went wrong for their team. However, more opportunities to play with different teammates helped change the majority of attitudes at our meetings. Presently, there is much more motivational communication amongst the students, as most look to pick someone up who has made a mistake instead of putting them down. Seeing these positive changes, both athletic and social/emotional, has been a delight for me. Thank you everyone who has shared this experience with me. Let’s finish strong in May!

What Is Financial Literacy, and why is so important?

Financial literacy is the ability to understand and effectively use various financial skills, including personal financial management, budgeting, and investing. When you are financially literate, you have the foundation of a relationship with money, and it is a lifelong journey of learning. The earlier you start, the better off you will be, because education is the key to success when it comes to money.
