Kavi’s first soccer game! I am a head coach in name only — thankfully, I have a co-head-coach, plus two experienced assistant coaches, because I really don’t know what I’m doing yet. My high school soccer (thirds) team experience was a long, long time ago. Between the four of us, I think we make at least one decent coach. I may have been looking up rules on my phone in the middle of the game. 🙂 (In case you’re curious, once the goalie has hands on the ball, no one is allowed to try to kick it. Be safe!)
We lost 2-0, but the girls played well despite unexpected 80 degree heat; I was proud of them all for staying out there. Kavi is currently the least experienced on the team, and I’m pretty sure in the worst shape, so she got pretty tired in an hour of running around. But hopefully between practices and games, that will improve for her soon. I was just happy that she was still relatively cheerful at the end of the game; I’d been a bit worried that it would all end in tears.
