Hand out recognition items.
This whole meeting focuses on earning the soccer belt loop. The requirements are:
- Explain the rules of soccer.
- Practice soccer for 30 minutes.

For help in explaining the rules of soccer, check out this post on Soccer Terminology. If you are looking for some fun ways to practice the soccer skills, try Soccer Croquet , Soccer Marbles, or Soccer Tennis.
