This research project compares the satisfaction and team cohesion of girls high school and club soccer teams in the Bay Area. With the satisfaction of players and cohesiveness of teams playing a big role in overall success, it is important to research the factors and practices that can potentially affect many youth soccer teams. The goal is to first use a survey to discover certain variables that correlate to higher levels of satisfaction and team cohesion, such as age, team level, connection with teammates, coach communication, and happiness. After analyzing the responses interviews with several successful and cohesive teams to realize any specific practices they use to help with team well-being will be conducted.
