  Petty & Hubbard 1  Madelyn Petty & Maddy Hubbard  4th Hour English 1010  Ethnographic Essay  13 May 2016  Audience: Soccer Coaches and Parents  King of the Hill   Ranked number one in the region and number three in the state, the boys’ soccer team has  come a long way from their little league teams. This Sky View High School boys soccer team  has put in hours of hard work and dedication, which can lead to only one thing. Winning. For  these soccer boys, four things have helped them get to where they’re at right now:  communication, consistency, closeness and respect.   As a team communication is huge. Senior Conner Larson, one of the four team captains,  is constantly communicating with the players on the field. He is making sure everyone is aware  of where the ball is and who is open. The players on the field are keeping each other informed so  they make good passes and are efficient. Sharon, the varsity assistant coach said, “When the boys  communicate on the field they intimidate the other team out” (Sharon).   The consistency the soccer boys have is because of their practice schedule. The soccer  boys have “Intense and focused practices” (Geddes). They have the mentality that practice equals  performance. Everyday when the soccer boys begin practice, they line up into five or six lines.  The first person in line begins doing an exercise around small orange cones. They compete  exercises such as, leg lifts, lunges, and other exercises to stretch, around the first half the cones  and the other half sprint back to line. This takes place for about five minutes. Every player    Petty & Hubbard 2  knows what they are supposed to be doing and in what order to complete them in. Roger  Staubach, an American Football player, said, “In any team sport, the best teams have consistency  and chemistry” (Staubach). Doyle Geddes, the soccer coach, discussed with us that his team has  maintained a steady practice schedule. They practice every day for two hours, which adds up to  ten hours of practice at school. The boys are also expected to practice outside of school, says  their assistant coach Sharon. These boys have played on the same soccer team since age ten,  which also helps add to their consistency.  Geddes says that the team understands that everything that is done in practice will be  done during the games. When participating in competitive sports it is often said that how the  players practice is how they will perform. Sergeant First Class Gregory W. Alley of the Military  said, “Great practice equals great performance” (Alley). Although the soccer boys have had a  steady winning season they have not become lazy in their practices. They stick with their strict,  demanding routine of warm­ups, conditioning, drills, and scrimmages daily.   Geddes said that the team started off in a pretty good place, that they began close and  their relationships have only gotten stronger as the season went on. While we were observing the  practices we noticed that the teammates were constantly laughing and joking around with each  other. At the beginning of the first practice that we observed we noted that there were quite a few  members of the team playing around with each other. Some of the players were participating in  what seemed like a handstand and cartwheel contest, while others talked on or around the  benches. As we continued to watch the soccer boys, before practice started, more joined the boys  that were doing hand stands. Some of them were helping others get all the way up into a  handstand position. Once the coaches arrived with the soccer balls, the players started to get into    Petty & Hubbard 3  groups and began to pass the ball to each other. Even though they were practicing the essential  fundamentals of the sport they continued to have fun together.   During the second practice that we observed we saw the same comradery. The team  mates got ready together and then some of them started to pass around the soccer balls and began  to kick them into the goal. The team seems like they have found the balance of hard work and  fun. Even when they are participating fully in the medial tasks of warming up and passing drills,  they were joking and interacting with the teammates that are in their group of five.  They  continued listening to the coach as he had them change from left diagonal kick to right diagonal  kick.  After they were done with the passing and throwing drills they showed more evidence of  the closeness that Geddes was talking about. After finishing with their warm ups they were  instructed to put on their shin guards. There were many players that asked to borrow or use many  different things from other players. Some of them were asking to share another player's water.  While others were asking to use things like tape, pre wrap, and sun screen. In most  circumstances the player that was asked to lend or give something of theirs they were quick to  give whatever it was that the other player was asking for. Because the soccer boys have such a  close relationship, they seem to understand that soccer is about the team and not about  individuals. While talking about this topic Geddes said that he is constantly explaining that it  isn´t about the individual players, but about the team as a whole.  Another thing that has helped the boys get to where they are is the respect they show  towards their coaches. The boys’ soccer team has one head coach and two assistant coaches. The  assistant coaches lead the warm­ups and then Geddes, the head coach, leads the main part of    Petty & Hubbard 4  practice. Geddes shared with us in an interview, that he demands his team to give the same  respect to the assistant coaches as they give to him. ​ Altintas Atahan,an author from Baskent  University that studies physical education and sports training said,“The relationship between  athletes and coaches is at the heart of sport training and successful coaching” (Atahan).​  These  boys are not just good soccer players, but they are also respectful boys. When the boys are doing  warm­ups they listen to their assistant coach through the whole thing.   The soccer boys’ do not only have respect for their coaches but also their team members.  The team captains were chosen by the team, who look up to them and have immense respect for  them. They work as one cohesive unit and look at everyone as equals. Michael Jordan said it  best, “There is no I in Team.” Before the coaches arrive at practice the boys begin stretching and  passing balls in small circles. These fundamental practices are led by their team captains. Larsen  said “We all mess around together but we begin practice as soon as we are dressed” (Larsen).  During the course of a practice the members of the soccer team are continuously getting  feedback and constructive criticism by the team captains. Under these circumstances it would  seem likely that some of the boys on the soccer team would get frustrated with all of the input  they are receiving but instead they listen the the instruction and seem to immediately apply it to  how they are playing. Kayla Matthews, a blogger who focuses on psychology of handling  criticism said, “Many of us take criticism more personally than we should, and that’s where  we’re getting it wrong” (Matthews)          Petty & Hubbard 5  Through Coach Geddes´s total of thirty four years coaching, twenty total years with the  boys soccer team and eighteen total years with the girls soccer team, he seems to have a pretty  good idea what makes a good team. He has led this team to region and now state. However, it is  not Geddes who deserves all this credit. These players are not just winning because of luck, they  have a strong core and are dedicated. Their communication, consistency, and respect for all make  them this winning team and he King of the Hill.                               Works Cited  Geddes, Doyle. Personal Interview. 13 May 2016.  "Roger Staubach." Xplore Inc, 2016. 16 May 2016.
