Part 1 - Headers Intro


(Scene starts with some examples of headers. Start out with some regular middle field headers and then move onto cool goals off headers. Finish with headers that saved goals from being scored.)

Coach: "Ah headers. One of the most exciting, and for some, scary parts of the game of soccer. Headers are awesome for highlight reel goals AND saves. Although it seems like it might hurt quite a bit, the human head is actually quite conveniently designed so that it won't hurt. You can also take comfort in the face that there is no conclusive evidence linking headers to brain damage. So now that I've told you that it won't hurt and that it won't cause damage, you have no more excuses. Let's start heading."
