My cousin just loves playing soccer – but the problem was, soccer doesn’t seem to love him back. He would attend practices and would even invest extra time in the field, rain or shine, in order for him to improve in his skills. There would be instances when he would be the only boy left practicing and he would still go on and kick the soccer ball repeatedly towards the goal. On those days, he often become more tired retrieving the ball than practicing.
That was when my aunt saw an advertisement for a soccer rebounder online. She got one for my cousin so that he could continue to practice even in their backyard. The rebounder also saved him the time of retrieving the ball from the net, as the ball would bounce back to him or to the ground depending on how he chose to set up the equipment. Soccer rebounders also have a built in target that allow him to improve his accuracy.
My cousin would spend countless hours in his backyard practicing with the soccer rebounder – and sure enough, during his team’s next practice, the coach saw an improvement on how he was playing. Not only have his soccer skills improved overall, he was also able to score two goals, as he was able to direct the soccer ball perfectly to go where he wanted it to go!
The soccer rebounder was a wonderful investment on my aunt’s part. It helped my cousin improve on his game, and he eventually won an MVP award for his efforts. The award lifted his spirits and improved the way that he communicates with the rest of the kids, and as a result, he has gained a particular confidence that was not there before.
