Youth soccer gear is one of the most favorite collectors’ items of youth soccer players. As more and more younger generation are becoming involved with soccer and is becoming a favorite sport for children today, therefore it is essential that they be provided with the best gear for their protection.

Since the sport soccer involves a lot of action and body contact, proper gear should be worn to avoid injuries. There are varieties of soccer gear needed for a soccer player such as cleats or shoes, shin guards, soccer jerseys, soccer balls, head gears and of course the soccer ball.

Since the sport involves a lot of foot action, a foot gear is the most important equipment needed. One of these good foot gears comes from Adidas with its Predator PowerSwerve with sizes for adult and youth. The classic Copa Mundial also is quite a good deal which offers comfort and durability.

The Mercurial Vapor which comes from Nike is also one of the best cleats available. Nike Cleats have always been a favorite of famous soccer players in professional soccer. Nike products carry high quality materials and functionality.

Another essential soccer gear is the headgear. Potential risks of head injuries are associated with soccer heading, thus a headgear should be used by youth players. Based on tests conducted by an independent group, the Protector Brand headgear has the most efficient in decreasing the impact caused during the game.

There are a lot of vendors for these gears but what is important is to choose which best serves its purpose, to protect our young players from the hard actions of the game while enjoying the game.

Many coaches ask me how to stop the players goofing around during practice sessions. Below are some ideas that I use myself and that are successful.

Firstly after team formation at tryouts I have a sheet of paper with the coaches rules for the players. I read this to the players and have them sign it. It is good to start off like this and let the players know the rules and what you will accept and what you will not accept.

Some rules could include:

– To attend all practice sessions

– To inform the coach if you cannot attend a practice session or game.

– To turn up to practice sessions and games on time

– To try their hardest in practice sessions and games

– No talking when the coach is talking

– No goofing off during practice sessions

Secondly it is wise for the coach to not allow the players the time to goof off. They should always be kept busy. Do drills where all the players are involved and try to not do too many line drills where the players are standing around for long periods of time.

If there are a few players goofing around, you should discipline the whole team. Here peer pressure will come in and the players themselves will tell the few who are goofing around not to do so.

If there are continuous instances of the same player goofing around, a private word with the player might be a good idea. In this conversation be open and honest. Tell them that this is a problem and ask them to discontinue this behavior. This private one on one conversation usually works. If this does not work I would suggest having a word with the parent. This should really put an end to the problem.

If all of the above does not work there is obviously a problem with the player. The next stage should be an official letter of warning in writing to the parents. This should state the sequence of events you have already taken to stop the goofing around and, a warning that a repeat of this behavior will lead to a suspension from a few games and then dismissal from the team.

His birthday is approaching and it seems impossible to buy him anything new and fresh. He doesn’t appreciate the clothes you bought him last year and you know he’ll finish off that expensive bottle of wine without even thinking about how much it cost.

This year focus on what he really likes. Every week he’s either at a football match or watching the TV for news and highlights of the weekends games. Maybe he even plays or coaches for a local club. This year, focus on something that really makes him happy, get him a soccer related gift. Never mind the high tech gadgets, costly gizmo’s and expensive trainers. Football is the answer to the perfect gift conundrum.

For a start, the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach so bake him a cake in the shape of a football or with his favourite teams crest on it. He’ll love that and it will be a great start to his party. If he’s a music lover you can buy CD’s with football songs on, many are team specific and are available from the teams’ online store.

If you are going to buy clothes there are some very tasteful garments with football club insignia on. There are very subtle polo shirts and T shirts that have small club logos on the chest, Alternatively you can go the whole hog and get him a replica shirt. He’ll love to wear this to the match and if he’s already got one you could buy him an away kit.

Perhaps clothing accessories would be a good idea. There are plenty of football scarves and gloves on sale which are great quality and look good.

You can make buying a gift for your football mad boyfriend much easier and stress free by looking into the kind of gifts I’ve mentioned. There are plenty of great websites out there offering great deals on football related gifts.

It really feels great to have clean, shining soccer cleats while entering into the arena- it boosts our confidence in some discreet manner. But when you’re required to master the sport with lots of practice, on obviously dusty and marshy fields, their cleanliness is hard to perceive. So, you’ll have to be a good boy and start caring for your equipments. Regular cleaning of soccer cleats is very important if you want to ‘keep them happy’ and not degrade sooner.

Now, before you get overly enthusiastic and overwhelmed and go for slamming them straight into a washing machine or a dishwasher or tortures of any sort, read what I have to say for a few minutes. Here, we’ll be discussing tips to clean soccer cleats when they get very dirty. You may clean them in two ways- manually or by using a washing machine.

1. Cleaning Manually

For this method, you’ll require

* A piece of cloth (towel-like texture preferred)

* A boot brush for rubbing flat ends

* A toothbrush for thin crevices

* A vessel full of lukewarm water.

* Washing Powder or Liquid

1. To begin cleaning, first stuff the hollow of the shoes with a newspaper ball to prevent any water seepage into the inner shoe and to make cleaning easier.

2. Unlace the shoes and keep the laces separate for later cleaning.

3. Begin by scrubbing the ‘upper’ and the heel. They are the easiest to clean and form the most of the exposed surface of these soccer cleats. Dip the cloth into the water and simply remove the excess dirt on them.

4. For cleaning the flynet, take some washing powder on the cloth, drench the cloth again and start scrubbing. Little specks of dirt must be removed.

5. There’s naturally a lot of mud accumulated around studs at the outsole. You may use a boot brush to clean this area. If some dirt still remains at little corners, don’t hesitate in using a toothbrush for cleaning that.

6. The region where the outsole meets the upper and heel must be cleaned with a toothbrush.

7. To clean the sock liner, take it out from the inside and the using washing powder, scrub the area. For the laces, dip them into the vessel and rub them therein. The little specks of dirt they may contain must be effaced off.

You are not required to be very gentle, but that doesn’t give you the freedom to treat your soccer cleats savagely.

2. Cleaning in a washing machine

Alright! You may use the washing machine and save yourself from the labor. But for that, you’ll have to keep certain things in mind. First of all, separate the laces and the sock liner from the soccer cleats. Make sure that you’ve placed enough towels or some heavy cloth around them so they do not mess with the walls of the washing machine. Set the temperature to around 30 degree centigrade and go for extra rinse. With all this ensured, you are good to go.

William “Smokey” Robinson, Jr. has earned the title “King of Motown” for making countless hits and consistent contributions to the label that he helped to get started.

Robinson was born on February 19, 1940 in Detroit, Michigan, and was raised in the same place’s North End. His nickname was originally “Smokey Joe”, given by his uncle because of Robinson’s love of cowboy movies, and this was later shortened to “Smokey” when he was teenager.

Smokey Robinson established and made a name as an American R&B and soul singer, songwriter, record producer, and record executive. He was one of the men behind Motown Records who gave success to the company in collaboration with the company’s founder Berry Gordy.

The Miracles as a group was formed in the latter part 1958, but its members were seasoned performers, working for many years under different names. In 1955, Robinson founded the Five Chimes together with Ronald White his best friend, Peter Moore, Clarence Dawson, and James Grice, his former high school classmates. The group’s name was changed to the Matadors in 1957 with Emerson and Bobby Rogers (his cousins) replacing Dawson and Grice. Eventually in 1958, Emerson was replaced by his sister Claudette Rogers and Marv Tarplin joined the group as guitarist.

The newly founded Matadors started a tour in Detroit with Robinson as lead singer. In 1958, his work with Berry Gordy started when the two wrote the song “Got a Job”. Later they decided to change the group’s name to the Miracles and with this name they recorded for End Records and Chess Records. Not long after, Robinson suggested to Gordy that the latter should start his own label.

Thus started Tamla Records in 1959 founded by Gordy and later reincorporated it as Motown. With Robinson and Gordy working together, The Miracles had a good start when they signed in. They complemented each other’s talents and the hit-making power of Robinson made Gordy a more effective mentor.

On the business side, Gordy chose Robinson as vice-president of Motown records. The two continued serving their positions until Gordy left Motown. The Miracles had their first big hit in 1960 with the song titled “Shop Around”. It was also Motown’s first number one hit on the R&B chart and its first million selling hit single. A milestone for the label and for Smokey Robinson himself.

Robinson also wrote and produced music for other artists, most of them under Motown. He wrote “My Guy” for Mary Wells in 1964 which was a massive world-wide hit that year. For The Temptations, he not only wrote but also produced hit songs including “The Way You Do The Things You Do”, “My Girl”, “Twice I Lost My Baby”, and “Get Ready” between 1962 to 1966. He also composed “Still Water (Love)” for the Four Tops, “Don’t Miss with Bill” and “My Baby Must Be A Magician” for The Marvelettes, “When I’m Gone” for Brenda Holloway, “Ain’t That Peculiar” and “I’ll Be Doggone” for Marvin Gaye, and “First I Look at the Purse” for the Contours.

Smokey Robinson was much admired by other singers of the stature of John Lennon of The Beatles, who admitted that Smokey’s music also influenced his own. In fact, The Beatles recorded Robinson and The Miracles “You Really Got a Hold on Me”. Bob Dylan gave him the title “America’s greatest living poet”. With over 4,000 songs that made big hit because of his talent, he was honored as “America’s poet laureate of love”.

Motown had also made such an impact on Smokey’s personal life that he named his son Berry, the company’s founder, and his daughter Tamla, after the label for which they earlier recorded as a group. His wife was Claudette Rogers, his co-member in the Matadors who replaced her brother Emerson Rogers.

By 1969, Robinson had given his family such top priority that he considered leaving the Miracles. It was also during this time that the group’s popularity went downhill, and when the band stopped recording Robinson thought that it was finally time to leave. The turn of events however gave them a little hope when their 1969 recording “Baby Baby Don’t Cry” was well received, putting it to the National Billboard Pop Top 10. The future became even more promising when their 1970 release of “The Tears Of A Clown” was a hit in both the US and the UK charts.

This changed Robinson’s mind about leaving the band short term, but in 1972 he finally made the decision to move out of The Miracles and go solo. His solo career did not get off to a good start, and his work as vice-president of Motown took up most of his time. However, the release of his first solo LP in 1973 titled “Smokey” achieved partial success, and contained the song “Sweet Harmony” which he dedicated to The Miracles.

That was the start of a solo career that was continue with his 1975 “Baby That’s Backatcha” in the R&B genre. His other solo hits include “Cruisin'” (1979), “Being With You” (1981), “Tell Me Tomorrow” (1982), and “Ebony Eyes” (1983), a duet with Rick James. What almost never came to be was eventually a resounding success.

By the middle of the 1980s Robinson became addicted to cocaine and divorced Claudette in 1986. His work suffered and it was his friend Leon Kennedy who helped him out of his miserable situation. He eventually recovered from his “bankruptcy”, giving his career another good tune.

He won a Grammy award for “Just to See Her” in 1988 and published his autobiography “Smokey” in 1988, and in the same year was inducted into the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”.

Robinson’s days with Motown as vice-president ended with the label’s sale to MCA in 1988, so he left the company in 1990. He won a “Soul Train Music Award for Career Achievement” in 1991, and received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1999.

Since 2000, Robinson had some periodic performances and other activities. He served as guest judge in American Idol in 2003 and in 2004, his SFGL Foods Company marketed “Smokey Robinson’s ‘The Soul Is in the Bowl’ Gumbo”. He also spends time as spokesperson of the “Great American Smokeout”.

Some of his more recent performances include his appearance at the Apollo Theater to record a TV special. In March 2009, he was again seen on American Idol Season 8 as mentor and coach of the top 10 contestants, and on May 9, 2009, he was conferred an honorary doctorate degree at Berkley College of Music.

Truly an R&B great, Smokey Robinson has seen it all, and his career is a tale that most boys would regard as no less than heroic, although it was based around the phenomenon of the 1960s and 70s that was Tamla Motown – eventually to become just Motown.

Football is religion for this small country. Throughout its communist times, the Bulgarian nation managed to preserve its nationality and freedom exactly through supporting the country’s favourite football club – Levski Sofia named after the apostle of Bulgarian freedom from Ottoman rule, established in 1914. Known under many different names throughout the years, broken down and dissolved in an attempt to subdue the enthusiasm and empower the communist motto “If you’re not with us, you are against us” and stomp on the basic human rights to support a team they love, Levski Sofia football club has managed to perservere and come out on top in today’s society. It has won 26 Bulgarian Championship titles, only beaten by its rival CSKA Sofia. Famous football icons such as Gundi and Gonzo who played internationally have captained the team and have taken it to worldwide fame. Gerena stadium is the main stadium of Levski Stadium with capacity of 19,000.

The other mostly supported Bulgarian team is CSKA Sofia. Its history is a little different to Levski’s as they were the Army’s team in the past – supported by the government in power and managed by the very same. Considering they have won 31 title in the shorter history, founded in 1934, it is only fair to consider the fact that during communist times they were pushed to victories in order to maintain the control of the governing party by proving to the ordinary citizen that the leading party is the almighty powerful tool that is to lead them. If we put that aside, CSKA has provided one of the top quality footballers on a worldwide level, including Hristo Stoichkov and Dimitar Berbatov, one playing for Barcelona, reaching 4th place with Bulgarian national team and winning the Golden Ball award and the other playing for top clubs like Tottenham, Manchester United and Monaco and winning the Champions League, respectively. CSKA Sofia has a great academy for youngsters and is known to promote young footballers and develop them to become great professionals.

The most famous, risen to infamousy football club recently is Ludogoretz. It’s owner is Kiril Domuschiev, a wealthy businessman that funds the club and supplies it with a budget nearly 5 times as large as the second to it in terms of finance. Their main strategy is to acquire footballers from abroad, primarily African regions and Brazil and use them to dominate in the local championship. Results speak for themselves, Ludogoretz has been a champion for the past 4 years since it emerged in the Group A of the Bulgarian football league. They played in the Champions League groups last year narrowly losing to Liverpool and Real Madrid and beating Basel on home turf. The team resembles Manchester City and Real Madrid in terms of management and is the top club in Bulgaria at the moment.

Ralph Edward Tresvant was born in Boston in 1968, and grew up with an older sister and a younger brother in the Orchard Park Projects. He is the lead singer of the Rhythm and Blues group New Edition, and has released some solo albums as well. He began his career in school as a youngster, singing with friends from about the age of ten.

High School Friends

In high school, at one of the local talent shows he had entered with childhood friends, he was seen by the songwriter Brooke Payne, who was just beginning to make a name for himself. He is the one who gave the four friends Ralph, Bobby Brown, Rickey Bell, and Michael Bivins, the name of New Edition. With this name, he meant to convey the concept that this group could be a new edition of the Jackson Five. This description enabled the group to be signed up by Maurice Starr who was looking for a new pop act based on the Jackson Five, and their songs were to appear on his independent Streetwise Records label. A fifth person, Ronnie DeVoe, was added to the group. The debut album of this fresh, exciting group New Edition was launched in 1983. Candy Girl was a great success for the group, and Popcorn Love and Is This The End followed. As teen sensations in the 80s, the four friends could move out of the housing projects of Boston.

Net Worth

Today, because of the successful singing career of New Edition, numerous singles and the 2008 touring initiative with the Head of State band alongside Johnny Gill and Bobby Brown, Ralph’s popularity has increased considerably, and his net worth is now about eight million dollars.

Successful Solo Career

All the members of the group have had their own solo reach number one on the charts, and Ralph Tresvant was the last one to release a song on his own. Bobby Brown had sung Girlfriend, and Bell, Bivins and DeVoe had combined with the song Poison. New Edition as a group had also had four number one songs, so Ralph Tresvant had certainly had some good successes to compete with. In one way, it was an advantage to him, as he could see what the fans were expecting, and what they would like. Tresvant is normally an introverted character, and was a bit nervous about going public with a solo effort, but his song Sensitivity, sold over a million copies and remained on the United States top ten R&B chart for weeks.

Films and a Radio Show

After arguments over money, New Edition left Starr’s record label and signed up with the leading MCA Records. New Edition’s second album was released and the success continued with the song Cool It Now. Tresvant’s smooth style of singing had become an acknowledged asset to the group. He was also asked to sing some numbers on the soundtracks for the film s Mo’ Money and The Preacher’s Wife, and even made a short debut into films by appearing in the comedy House Party 2.

Today Ralph Tresvant hosts a radio show in Boston, combining R&B with other categories of music like soul and hip hop. He is a generous man, and started his radio show with a charity drive.

Coaching youth football is a different story than coaching an adult professional team. There are a variety of drills to teach the youth compared to adults. With kids, it is understandable that they just want to have fun and they do not just intent to win a game. But building up the youth spirit is a lot more challenging to coaches since kids hard headed and uncoordinated if they're not guided. The essential skills needed by a good coach include football progress drills, a positive attitude, and building up plays.

Build Their Social skills

Kids are sometimes rude and selfish if they're left by their coach to practice alone. As a coach helping them build camaraderie will help kids put together in one pack, and they should learn to look out one another.

Bonding and team work are a huge element to create a successful team. Kids with football skills will not learn to play as a group since most kids to play would love to play with their friends.

Make them Feel Important by Giving a Sense of Accomplishment

One great way to make kids important is to award them with their accomplishment. As a coach treat them hot fudge sundae if you notice an improvement to their progressive drills. You can start with basic drills and learn to appreciate on what they are capable to do.

Once you started to boost up their self confidence and they started to believe that they are better football players, then you can go heat up with some advance football coaching drills.

Instill a Sense of Appreciation

It is very important that kids know that you value them as a player. It is important that kids feel like an important treasure to their coach. Some coaches would prefer to be harsh by shouting at them during trainings. Training drills can be learn easily if it is provided very well and kids should know their coach is a caring person.

Building a youth championship team depends on the coach. Skills can be mastered with proper guidance. Once cultured with team coordination, skill mastery, and camaraderie it is for them to skyrocket their performance on the game, knowing that they're also valued and feel important by their coach.

With the craziness and competitiveness of today’s soccer programs many, players, parents, fans, and coaches forget about what soccer really is, and what is important to learn from it. Listed below are the true aspects of soccer; the ones that are really important.

1. Fun

Many people seem to think that fun is a child-like thing, something that is discarded when they become serious players or coaches. This is untrue; competitive players should be having as much (or more) fun as little kids playing soccer. Fun should be present in all levels of soccer and all age groups, but it is not; many players, parents, and coaches forget this valuable aspect.

Think about having fun next time you are around soccer. Remember that soccer is a game, and games are supposed to be fun.

2. Life Lessons

Listing all the life lessons that soccer provides is almost impossible. Players should be learning these lessons, not the bad lessons that are often taught such as “winning is the most important thing.” Soccer players who learn life lessons are ready to take on the world even outside of the soccer field.

3. Fitness

Obesity rates are soaring and kids are spending more and more time indoors. Soccer is a fun way to keep people in shape, and to get out of the house.

Players who become competitive will find themselves working out regularly to get an edge over the competition, and eating and drinking right so they can perform at their best.

4. Socialization

Everyone like to meet people with common interests and form a bond. Soccer does this, and forms a sense of unity amount teammates.


If you find yourself becoming too competitive or become a bad sport, look to the aspects listed and get back on track. Following these aspects will make your soccer more fruitful and enjoyable.

Do you want to get faster and more explosive on the soccer field? Would you like to lower the risk of getting injured? If so, keep reading!

Many soccer teams that I train or athletes that I work with share a common trait when they warm up…they all warm up in their bare feet. Here is the reason for that. By wearing shoes all the time, we are not strengthening the small muscles in the foot as well as we could. Shoes obviously serve a purpose, but try warming up your team without their shoes on and by doing this you will start to strengthen all of those small muscles in the feet, you will also help to strengthen the joints and ligaments in the ankle and lower leg as well.

I have written before about the Active Dynamic Warm up (ADW). If players do their ADW (series of exercises to warm their core body temperature up and then stretch dynamically) before their practice starts, they will in effect be doing themselves a huge favor.

Since soccer players (and most athletes) use their feet so much to not only play the sport of soccer but to be athletic too, training their feet to get stronger will absolutely increase their soccer speed, make them stronger which in turn will make them more explosive and will also reduce the number of lower leg injuries as well.

While I know this example is a bit of a reach, if you consider it, then you can see how barefoot training can effect your feet. Alright, so here is the example. If you wore baseball gloves on your hands for 2 weeks and did your normal routine, when you took the baseball gloves off and then tried to open a brand new jar of peanut butter, you probably couldn’t do it. The small muscles in your hand got weaker since you didn’t use them fully. The same thing applies when you wear shoes.

If you do a barefoot warm up, please make certain to clear the area of any rocks or sticks or anything that could injure a players foot. If you train indoors, then this issue is greatly reduced.

Just 15 minutes of barefoot training will help soccer players generate more speed, increase their agility and help to reduce lower leg and foot injuries.

I hope you have a great day!
