So I agreed to coach our daughter's soccer team this fall. Figured I had to drive and be at all of the practices anyway and better do this now before they realize I have no idea what I am doing! They are, after all, only 5! Plus I was able to recruit many our girl's friends for the team!
But as the season was about to begin I panicked a bit and e-mailed last year's coach who was kind enough to send me a list of fun drills...bless him! Then I watched some soccer drills on YouTube...that helps too!
Anyway, the point is they are having fun and I am having a blast! Had our first practice Thursday and our first game today. The girls came up with our team name... The Silly Squirrels since our uniforms are gray!
We won approximately 8 to 1 even though we do not keep score (the parents still do in their heads). Played 3 on 3 with no goalies...simple and fun. Our only objectives are to have fun and kick the ball in the correct direction!
Thank you Lord, for the privilege and opportunity to coach these sweet girls!
