The Great Sport of Football
By Scott Yanover
Do you see kids out there on the field having the time of their lives? That is the game of football. Youth football leagues are important because they help develop friendships and they teach discipline.
Football also teaches kids how to control emotions. They learn how to control themselves if somethings happens, like if they get upset about something. In "Winning Youth Football" it states the following "Games, even practices can be an emotional roller coaster. Players learn how to control their emotions so they can play under the rules of the game." Football also teaches kids discipline. They learn discipline and how to use it in society. "The passion evoked by football is as timeless as its values of sacrifice and discipline standing forever firm regardless of society swings."(Alic). Youth football is a game of emotions and discipline.
