Soccer Anyone?

Part of the fun of being in Tucson is being able to attend events like this soccer game. I know many of you are soccer players or former soccer players, but these 3 to 5 yr olds play it a little differently. This makes it much more fun for them and for the spectators too.

What's different?
  • Smaller playing field.
  • Shorter playing time.
  • If the ball goes out of bounds, the spectators just roll it back in and the game continues.
  • The number of players on the field at any time is of little consequence.
  • If (when) the ball is kicked into the goal by the wrong team, everyone still cheers.
  • A player may take a break at any time to sit with their mommy.
  • No one keeps score.
Here are some pictures of my favorite player, Number 8.

And a view of the sidelines with the enthusiastic soccer fans.
