Guiding Your Child to Make the Right Choices

January 31st, 7-9 pm

American soccer legend Bob Rigby has played with and competed against the best in the world and now he joins Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer’s ongoing monthly lecture series for coaches, parents and players.
Rigby’s presentation, entitled “Guiding Your Child to Make the Right Choices,” will touch upon the delicate balance parents and coaches face in pushing young players too hard in an ever increasing competitive atmosphere. How do we keep soccer fun and progressive for kids while also encouraging them to explore all that life has to offer? In addition, how do we keep our children safe from peer pressure, bullying and the myriad of trials and tribulations that face our youth?
Bob Rigby has experienced soccer on all levels and has lived the life of a superstar. Rigby was the first American soccer player to be featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. He has played with Pele, Eusebio and George Best, to name a few. He played in goal for the Philadelphia Atoms, New York Cosmos and LA Aztecs in the North American Soccer League. In the ‘70s Rigby played on the U.S. Olympic and U.S. Men’s National teams.
Now, Rigby has turned his attention to child development. He is a counselor in the Ridley School District in Folsom, Pa., and a motivational speaker.
We invite you to join us on Monday evening, January 31, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Doubletree Suites Hotel in Plymouth Meeting (640 West Germantown Pike, Plymouth Meeting, PA 19462) in Chestnut Room A & B to meet Bob Rigby and hear what he has learned through his years of experience in and out of soccer. This event is free for Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer members.
