Why is it called Soccer?

It is important that we understand the word ‘soccer’ and its origins if we are the one’s coaching and teaching it!

Soccer started out as ‘Association Football’ in England and was shortened to ‘asocc’ and then settled as ‘soccer’. Given that America is so heavily instilled with ‘Football’ or ‘American Football’ as it is known in the wider world, the use of the word ‘Soccer’ has been ingrained in North Americans forever more.
