My middle daughter loves soccer and is very competitive. She tried out for the premier select team in Washington State and made their U-ll development team. The amazing thing is she was only 8 when she tried out and is playing 2 levels above her age. She played in her first tourney this last weekend and their team won all 3 games in the qualifying round and then unfortunately lost the championship game 2-1. She was selected as a player of the game for the championship game, which is awesome considering she played defense and it is usually the offensive players that get all the glory. You can see her team info on the FC Royals 94 Royal page. She has been playing with them now for just over 3 months and I can see a marked improvement in her skills. Her goal is to play at the college and higher level and with her ambition and skill she has a good chance at it too.
My oldest and youngest also play soccer and it is their favorite sport. I am coaching my youngest daughter’s team again as we move up to the U-7 bracket. Stay tuned for more proud Daddy news on this blog 🙂
