Our daughters play in an intramural soccer league at their school each year and their games began this past weekend. Soccer seems to involve lots of gear (yes, shin guards, soccer socks and cleats is a lot for me!), plenty of sideline cheering and, still a major factor for the girls, team snacks after the game!
I think the social aspect is definitely something that the girls enjoy. Not only do they get to be with their teammates, but if their games are at different times, they can also run around and play with friends during their sister’s game. I like the fact that they’re spending time outdoors while getting plenty of exercise (and they’re ready to rest later!)
