Youth Soccer Is The Root Of All Evil

Youth Soccer Is The Root Of All Evil
by Gina Valley

Youth soccer is the root of all evil.

It seems like the perfect children’s sport.

Everyone can play.  The rules are simple.  Only basic equipment is necessary.

Son#2 took up La Crosse this year, and we’ve all been confused ever since.

We’re a big sports family.   We follow the pros and college teams for a variety of sports. We love to go to games, and argue over brackets.  We all have our favorite teams, and have a great time harassing each other about who’s favorite is doing the best.

Youth football plays its last game for the winter season soon.  I’m trying to wrap coaches’ gifts, and I’m wondering where the tape is.

I’m also wondering where I put the forms for spring soccer.

Ahhh – the never ending carousel that is youth sports.
