As I mentioned in my post a few days ago, when teaching a new skill one of the first things you need to do is develop a common terminology. This word search puzzle incorporates several of the soccer terms from that post:

  • Defender
  • Forward
  • Midfielder
  • Goalkeeper
  • Tackle
  • Center
  • Save
  • Clearing
  • Shielding
  • Field
  • Center Circle
  • Midfield Line
  • Penalty Area
  • Goal Area
  • Penalty Arc
  • Touchline
  • Endline
  • Corner Arc
  • Foul
  • Caution
  • Red Card
  • Corner Kick
  • Goal Kick
  • Indirect Free Kick
  • Direct Free Kick
  • Penalty Kick
  • Offside
  • Charging
  • Intentional Tripping
  • Pushing
  • Dangerous Play
  • Obstruction
So if the do the puzzle during the gathering period, when you come to the part of the meeting where you explain the terminology to them, the words will already look a little familiar to them.
You can create additional printables with soccer terminology using my Soccer Terminology Word List on A2Z Puzzler.

    Thank you sooooo much for taking the time to show me what achievements this would count for. As a mom who is involved with 3 different cub scout dens it is nice to show the leaders, who I am helping, where this same activity would help their different achievements! Thanks again!
