All,

From a die-hard soccer dad....
We just held a reunion dinner to include former players and our coach from A ‘98 team. It’s been 4 years since our last club game together! Our girls just graduated college and we shared our club soccer stories which was an awesome experience!

For whatever it’s worth, enjoy theses times and do not take things too seriously. The parents shared the following stories:
-Top 8 out of 108 teams in Gothia World Cup In Sweden
-State Cup Championship in Lake Highlands (before DA/ early ECNL years)
- moving up from D3 Lake Highlands to top of D1
- bigs wins in DC, San Diego, Orlando, etc.

But, the girls recalled the following stories:
- Alligators in the lake at one soccer tournament
- Teammates who came and went
- hotel room dance parties
- Helping carry teammates off the field due to an injury
- Birthday parties with cake and ice cream

Please enjoy these times as they go by way too fast. As parents, we grew as our daughters grew from intense parents to laid back parents.

I miss soccer! I miss the players, parents and coaches! My advice is to cherish every moment. Especially, during these unreal pandemic times. I’m thrilled our girls are better off in life due to leadership, teamwork for their newly started career paths. Think big picture and you will be satisfied from your soccer experience!

Thanks for sharing and reminding us parents of the big picture! Also, our 99 team had 16 college commits (14 D1) from our Top ECNL team. While most are still in college, many no longer play college soccer. Many depart after the first semester. Thus, big picture is to get into a good school and Then focus on The bigger picture of a great college education. Good luck to all!
