Soccer Has Never Been So Much Fun
“When signing my daughter up for soccer for the first time, I quickly realized this wasn’t going to be an adventure just for her,” admits Chris Armstrong, a new soccer mom in Wisconsin. “ I was required to sign up for a volunteer position, and the trouble was, I knew nothing about soccer!”
Thanks in part to the video The Fundamentals of Soccer with Stinky Shoe & Coach LaRoo, Ms. Armstrong (and her daughter) now have the basics of the game down and can say with confidence, “Having made it through our first season of U6 soccer, we are heading into the spring soccer season quite prepared.”

This 30- minute video incorporates live action – real kids and their coach – and animation with off-beat characters, Stinky Shoe and Coach LaRoo. Music and humor is woven throughout to add to the fun and entertainment.
