Book Helps Put Things in Perspective for Soccer Players and Parents

At a time when many people seem to be losing their minds over youth soccer, author Mark Vincent Lincir recounts a soccer life filled with plenty of comedy and inspirational moments.


Gilbert, Arizona, USA – At a time when parents are spending tremendous amounts of money for elite clubs, camps and coaches hoping that their child will attract a college scholarship offer, “A Soccer Life in Shorts” shows that simply having fun playing the world’s most popular sport doesn’t have to be frowned upon.

The book is an honest and hilarious collection of stories, poems and pictures from a life well-lived in the world’s most popular sport by author Mark Vincent Lincir. “Unfortunately, a lot of people have lost perspective on what it’s all about. It’s about having fun, making friends and continuing to play soccer for the long haul. Not just going all-out for a few years and then quitting the game because the kid hates it by then.”

Lincir also feels that players today need to win in order to keep their passion for the game burning. “Passion has nothing to do with results. If you love the game, you play it because you want to be a part of it, not just because you want to win. Sure, we all want to win…but you can’t every time out. The all-or-none mentality out there is very unhealthy for our youth players. Let them enjoy the game without any pressure and that is the theme of the stories in my book. I didn’t always win, but I always came back for more.”

A Soccer Life in Shorts” has consistently been in’s top 10 best-seller list for e-book soccer non-fiction for over a year. It is available at and
