Featured Player of the Week: published 12/21/2016
Our Player of the Week for this week is Charlie. 10 year old Charlie is on Active Children Portland’s Whitman Elementary 4th-5th grade soccer team. Given the choice to be any superhero, Charlie would be superman! He wants to save people and save the world from those who want to commit crimes against other people. What Charlie enjoys most about soccer is learning how to kick and dribble the ball. Raymond, a good friend of Charlie, helps him out in regards to always being there for him to pass the ball. For Charlie, being a good teammate is helping out others and being able to pass/assist to someone else so they can score. Soccer helps Charlie stay healthy by providing exercise, and building muscles. That way when he wants to play a game, he grows better every time. His coach helps him by teaching them how to dribble a ball, how to pass, and how to control it. If Charlie would change one thing in the world if he could, he would give homeless people shelter and
food so they won’t have to go hungry.
