Think South America and think Rio. Think about the World Cup. The US will be playing in the Soccer World Cup in Brazil. Our teams will be facing Portugal and others. Team USA will be one of many going for the World Cup. You can learn more about Soccer at the Wilkes Public Library. Think about the warm region of Brazil and how players from all over the world will be facing each other until only 1 team will remain.

You can learn with your homeschool families all about these teams. Then consider getting your kids in soccer camp in the Summer. Kids can learn the sport and see the sport played by Team USA.
