It's not always easy to play on the field with confidence, and helping tweens keep their cool doesn't stop at reminding those who need it to apply Degree Deodorant before practice or a game. According to the American Council on Exercise, children who are active have a stronger self-image, more self-confidence, and less anxiety and stress.
In recognition of US Youth Soccer team members who stretch beyond expectations, Degree will honor two players – one boy and one girl, ages 8-12 – with the inaugural Degree Cool & Confident Kid Award and a special skills workshop for their entire teams, hosted by a professional MLS player!
Is your son or daughter the teammate who passed out the assists or that cheered the loudest? As a coach, is there someone who sets a great example on and off the field? The Degree Cool & Confident Kid Award is asking tweens to share their moments of success, and the many ways they inspire themselves and others to kick it into gear.
Entry forms for the Degree Cool & Confident Kid Award are now available to download at www.DontFretTheSweat.com/ConfidentKid
for players to share their story of confidence in 150 words or less. If your tween has a tale of pride – whether he or she took a risk on the field, helped a teammate learn a new move, or accomplished a goal – Degree wants to hear about it.
Completed entry forms must be postmarked by Friday, December 31, 2010.
The grand prize winner of the Degree Cool & Confident Kid Award, which also includes $500 for team equipment, pizza parties or events, will be announced in January 2011. The VIP Skills Clinic, with an MLS player, will take place in the spring of 2011.
Don't forget - be on the lookout for Degree at games and tournaments throughout the season!
