By Juan, Age 15
1. Everyone loves it
Everyone loves to either watch or play soccer. It is a team sport that requires a plan and lots of talent and skill. Soccer is one of those sports where you need to learn how to communicate and score as many goals as you can.

For all you who don’t know how the plus-minus works, players who are on the ice when their team scores, receive a plus. Players who are on the ice when their team gets scored on, receive a minus. What I don’t understand is how come players who are in the penalty box when their team gets scored, don’t receive a minus? And how come a player who draws a penalty which their team scores on, does not earn a plus? Those players are a key reason why their team scored, or was scored against. Isn’t that what the plus-minus is all about?

“Hi! My name is Slate and I’m nine years old. I play on two baseball teams, Rampage and The Giants. Rampage is a ‘Super League Travel Team’ and we play a couple of games on Saturdays as far away as 120 miles from where I live. On my Giants team, we play at home against other teams in my town. Both teams prepare me to be on the All-Star team for my age group, after our final tournaments are over for the season.
Other sports I like to play are football and basketball. I play football on the school field with my friends. I have a hoop in my backyard to play basketball, and I also go to a church that is close to our house because it has a full-sized court.” Continue reading →
