Leftback Publishing Touts Book that Puts Reality in Perspective for Soccer Parent and Players

Gilbert, AZ (PRWEB) January 12, 2013

At a time when parents are spending insane amounts of money for elite clubs, camps and coaches hoping that their child will attract a college scholarship offer and professional clubs are signing eight-year-olds, the book A Soccer Life in Shorts shows that simply having fun playing the worlds most popular sport doesnt have to be frowned upon.

The book is an honest and hilarious collection of stories, poems and pictures from a life well-lived in the worlds most popular sport by author Mark Vincent Lincir. Unfortunately, a lot of people have lost perspective on what its all about. Its about having fun, making friends and continuing to play soccer for the long haul. Not just going all-out for a few years and then quitting the game because the kid hates it by then.

Lincir also feels that players today need to win in order to keep their passion for the game burning.

Passion has nothing to do with results. If you love the game, you play it because you want to be a part of it, not just because you want to win. Sure, we all want to winbut you cant every time out. The all-or-none mentality out there is very unhealthy for our youth players.

“Let them enjoy the game without any pressure and that is the theme of the stories in my book. I didnt always win, but I always came back for more. From scoring my own goal to getting a yellow card when I was only eight years old, the stories in my book show that.
