Why does Publix support youth soccer?
Because soccer is a social gathering, bringing coaches, parents, children, and their communities together in the spirit of competition. Because it's also a form of exercise that helps children develop fit habits early on to combat obesity. Because soccer is a teacher, honing well roundedness and problem-solving skills on the field that translate to real life. Because, for some, it's a path that keeps them in a straight line through school, showing them the way to scholarships and, for a select few, careers.
Most importantly, because soccer is a life lesson, instilling integrity, sportsmanship, and strength of character in children and turning them into valuable, contributing members of their communities as adults.
