Youth soccer coach Bruce Lovelace has been involved in soccer in a variety of ways for almost 50 years. Mr. Lovelace started his soccer career as a player in high school and then college. That progressed into playing in both indoor and outdoor soccer leagues.
Coach Bruce started his coaching career with earning his class F and class E coaching licenses and coached kids in youth soccer for 12 years before running a youth soccer franchise. The transition to publishing the Soccer-For-Kids website was initiated as a result of a serious health challenge.
Throughout his entire working life, coach Bruce has also been photographing kids as a professional photographer, and now he's playing soccer with his grandchildren!
The future of the planet will be in the hands (and feet) of our children before you know it. We parents and coaches can use the game of soccer to inspire kids in so many positive ways.
This website is intended to inspire you to learn more about the world's number 1 game, so that you can join me in nurturing and building kids into better human beings
Soccer For Kids is published by me, Bruce Lovelace. I recognized early on in my professional life the long-lasting value of getting kids off to a good start in life.
The desire to expand that influence further than my own small county in New Jersey lead to the birth of the soccer-for-kids website. I hope you'll join the cause.
Building strong self-esteem through the challenges and successes that come with the game of soccer is one of the chief benefits of participating in youth soccer. Especially when your kids are so young, playing soccer makes for making better decisions, better actions and habits throughout our later years of childhood and then into adulthood.
Although I was grateful for being voted in as the team captain my junior and senior years of my high school soccer career, it was the "Best Team Player" award that had the most impact on me. I really suffered from a lack of confidence in my youth. Soccer helped me overcome that and helped me in my future pursuits.
Developing myself as a soccer player when I was young has helped me in the business world as an adult. The struggles, the triumphs, and learning how to work as a team were the lessons that had a big influence on who I became.
After playing high school soccer, and several indoor and outdoor men's soccer leagues I turned to coaching youth soccer. The biggest joy comes in knowing you can have a positive impact on kids. It seems to run in the family as my 3 sisters and my daughter all became teachers, all choosing to educate young people.
I wish I had the opportunity to play youth soccer before I reached high school. At that time there was no youth soccer at all in my area. Had I participated I may not have had such a lack of confidence, experienced low self-esteem, and been afraid to try new things.
Along with the Inspire Kids Project, the soccer-for-kids website is one of the programs I started to have a positive influence on today's kids. Please join me in being a positive influence on children. Our future depends on it.
