Strengthening Social Skills Through Teamwork & Bonding by Caroline Stanton

           Communication and the ability to work in a team are two of the ten essential skills employers look for in recent college graduates, according to Susan Adams, Forbes employee.  It is easy to understand the value of communication because it is used in every function of life from work to social events.  Moreover, mastering in-person communication has become even more important than ever due to its dying nature with rapidly increasing technology.  Communication and teamwork are pinnacle to the game of soccer and the success of a team.

            DC Way encourages communication amongst players through fun games and exercises like Spiderweb.  At the start of the game, two kids link arms and attempt to add to the link by tagging other players like a spiderweb catching bugs.  Panna the Panda enjoys this game because as the chain grows so does the communication amongst players.  Through this game, Panna can practice teamwork by coordinating and talking with the other players to more effectively catch other kids.  Working as a team helps Panna build emotional maturity because it requires them to think of others.

            DC Way celebrates communication and teamwork at every soccer clinic and camp.  Communication and teamwork are just some of the many skills we teach to help your kid be successful in life.  We welcome you to join our Summer Soccer Camps to teach your camper essential skills!  You’ll be amazed how in just one week they can learn so much!  We hope to see you there!
