It's SOCCER Time Again!

Carson started his fourth season of soccer a couple of weeks ago. We joined the Stafford Area league. While I am a not a HUGE fan of Soccer in general...I do like to see my son play! he joined the U6 division and I am extremely thankful he got a coach who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about teaching the game to the kids. What I don't like is some of the rules are a bit different from what we are used to playing. Carson lived and breathed to play goal. He would pick that position each and every time first. He is an AWESOME goalie too! While he is a good offensive player as well, he hasn't quite gained control over moving the ball down the field. He can kick like no ones business, he just has poor aim I guess. Anyway, we have had two of our games rained out, and played a make-up game last Tuesday. It was FRIGID! His division doesn't keep score, and there are no throw in from the side...a couple of different rules, but a fun time was had by all.
See... He loves the goal.... just have a hard time telling him that there are no goalies in this division.There are three red heads on this team...all with like personalities and temperaments!This is the REAL reason he likes he can swing from the bars! So... folks, as I did last year, be prepared to be bored to tears with soccer updates!
