Silent Soccer Weekend - Saturday, October 5th & Sunday, October 6th

by Alvaro Garcia-Velez | Oct 02, 2019

We will be observing Silent Soccer Saturday, October 5th and Sunday, October 6th for all MKSC recreational games.

In support of the initiative the expectation is that all spectators will refrain from shouting or coaching during play. Spectators are encouraged to clap and cheer in appreciation of good effort, but otherwise should remain quiet and refrain from providing direction or instruction to players on or off the field. Coaches will still be able to coach their teams - we're asking that the spectator sidelines remain quiet.

Silent Soccer is an opportunity to let children play the game their way and solve the game on their own. The best soccer players in the world learned to love the game at an early age playing street soccer, without adults telling them how to play or pressuring them to win. Players learn to set their own level of competition and own the result, making mistakes and learning from them.

Thank you for your support to make Silent Soccer a success!
