U13 Warfare


It's getting rough on the battlefield. My kid is on two soccer teams now - her Catholic school team (which is as the parent coach says - just for fun) and her pro team. No, not really - but it feels like it (minus the paycheck). The kid had two games the 9/20 weekend and three games this past weekend. She has bruises all over her legs including a perfect bottom of a cleat bruise on her thigh. Her hand was kicked yesterday while she was down and she also now has a bruise and a swollen hand. She was called twice for pushing - both times it was in response for her getting pushed first but as in the NFL it's the second offender that gets caught/called. After playing in the rain for two different games on Saturday for a total of 3.5 hours the kid woke up on Sunday and said, I can't wait to play today. That makes the money, the time I spend driving and waiting and driving and waiting 100% worth it.
