How to Play Soccer | Soccer Field Trip | KidVision Pre-K



– [Woman] This module is sponsored by The Children Services
Council of Broward County. (playful xylophone music) – Today we're at Lockhart Stadium to find out about soccer! (players shouting) – Hi, I'm Penny and these
are the KidVision VPK kids. – Hi, well welcome. I'm Soccer Tom. Welcome to the Ft.
Lauderdale Striker game guys. We're gonna have a lot of fun. Why don't we find some seats? – What is soccer? – Well, soccer is a game that
they play all over the world. Every little country from,
end to end, around the world. And it's a really fun game because boys can play, girls can play, you don't have to be
real big or real strong. So long as your feet reach the ground, you can play soccer. – Do you play soccer Alex? – Yeah. – You do? What's your favorite part? – Being goalie and sinking all the goals. – Ah, you like being goalie! – You're a goalie, you look like a goalie. You look like you're quick like a cat. You see that only the guy
in different color uniform, the goalkeeper, can touch
the ball with the hands. But the rest of the players,
they're doing things like, dribbling, and passing and shooting. We call those skills. And soccer players have a
bunch of different skills. But the main ones are dribbling,
passing, shooting, heading, where they hit the ball
with their head, okay, and receiving where we
learn to control the ball. So those are all the little skills that we have in the soccer game. – So what are the soccer players? Do they have different
positions that they play? – The pros like the Ft.
Lauderdale Strikers, the game you're watching now, with those guys there's
always 11 on the field. One of em' is a goalkeeper,
and they're allowed to do a lot that the other players can't do. – Cause the don't _______ their hands. – That's right, they
get to try to stop em' with their hands, and
distribute it with their hands. And the other ones are basically broken down into three categories. The guys that defend your
goal, which are defenders. Sometimes they're called fullbacks, 'cause they're the full way back toward your goal, protecting. Then there's the midfielders. They're in the middle, midfield right? They're in the middle, not in
the front, not in the back. And they're our creative players, the guys that set up goals, and try to stop their team
from setting theirs up. And then there's the
forwards, or strikers. Those are the people that are up front, and their main job is
to get us some goals. (playful whistle) (team members shouting) (upbeat music) – Oh no! (team members shouting) (upbeat music) – [Tom] Wow
– Wow! – Oh look at that, oh my goodness – Whoa! – Did you see that – [Children] Wow! – He's about to score! – [All] Yay! – Strikers! – Woo-hoo! (clapping) (team members cheering) – Before you go out on the field, one of the things that we
really have to remember, is what we need as players
when we're gonna practice. One, for sure, you always
have to have water nearby. We gotta make sure we have sunblock. And then when we go over to meet some of our stars from the
Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, some of the things that they have always on the field when they're playing. First of all they have a soccer shoe that has special cleats on the bottom so they can run faster and stop short. So we have cleats. And then the referees always make you have like a shin guard, a thing that we put on our leg, that goes underneath your sock, and this protects us. We have our socks, player shorts, and of course your jersey. And each player would have a
different number on the back – Look at that. – And most important of all, the one thing you really
need to do to play soccer, is you need to have this round thing, it's a soccer ball. You wanna go meet the
players from the Strikers? – Yes! – Don't be shy.
– Look at that! – Come on up here.
– We're meeting the strikers!
– Look, first let me let me introduce 'em, let me introduce who they are. This is Chin, can everybody say Chin? – [Students] Chin! – Chin, that's our boy Chin. This is Manny, say Manny. – [Students] Manny! – Darnell. – [Students] Darnell! – And this is Justin. – [Students] Justin!
– They each have a present. I have one for you. – We're gonna be part of the Strikers. – Yup my professional players are making you guys part of the team. Everybody say welcome to the team 1, 2, 3 – [Group] Welcome to the team! (playful whistle) – Okay and so far we watched some soccer, we met some professional soccer players, we became teammates by getting a uniform from
the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, and now we're gonna warm up 'cause that's always the first thing we do when we're on a soccer field. Whether you're five years old, or you're a professional
player like these guys, we have to warm up. So we're gonna take our ball, and we're gonna switch, switch, Rat da dat da da da, Rat da dat da da da. Let me hear the music, good girl, awesome. Yes! Good girl, how nice! Now you're gonna get on
the side of your ball, and we're doing some exercises. You're gonna use your arms and your knees, and you're gonna jump
over the ball and back. Here we go, back and forth, over the ball (makes grunting noise) come one let me hear you
get over it. Sideways. Good girl, awesome. With the ball and you're gonna
throw you knees up like this, and you're gonna catch it. Whoa, try it! Oh my goodness first one, you the man! Good, come on, let's go try it. Yeah baby! Almost, you almost got it, you almost got it come on, go! Dribbling in soccer, you gotta
keep the ball close to you , watch, don't do it yet but watch. I don't kick the ball,
and then run after it. I don't kick it and then chase after it. That's not dribbling,
that's a kid chasing a ball. What I want you to do is
just tap the ball close. Let my Striker players,
just the kids stay. See how close they are? The ball stays close to them. So I want everybody to keep
the ball close and dribble. Keep it close. Good. Good. Keep moving with your ball. Dribble, good, dribble and freeze! Put your nose on the ball. Can someone hold their hand up and tell me what their ball smells like? Pepperoni pizza! Your ball must be hungry! Everybody, let's go, up and dribble, let's go, up and dribble. Freeze! Put your ear on the ball – [Teacher] Oh my God. – Can someone tell me what
there ball is saying right now? Listen, shhh, very quiet. What does your ball say? It says get up and dribble, everybody get up and dribble! Good boy! And dribble, let's go
dribble with your ball. Dribble, dribble. And freeze. Now we're gonna play in a game. And this is what we're gonna do. Coach Penny and Soccer Tom
are gonna pick two teams. So come on out coach Penny. Coach Penny's team will line up by her, and my team will line up
by me right over here. – You're gonna be our forward.
You're gonna be our forward, you're gonna be our forward okay? You're gonna be our midfield, and we're gonna play defense. – Okay – Okay? – We'll come up and
help you guys transport. – Which way are you guys going? Point which way you're going. Which way are you going? – [Students] That way! – Which way are you guys going? – [Students] That way! Okay, come on up here honey, come here. Pass it to Manny. When I say go, we're gonna start. Ready, play! Go, there we go, go yay! – [Penny] Try to get the
