Long story short, Brandi's soccer coach called for a practice on Friday evening. And it was a great practice. He taught them where they should be standing on the field, how to pass to each other, what position plays where and what they do in that position, he went over rules of the game, they ran, they did drills, they passed the ball, the played. And he talked to them about the fact that they have as much right to the ball as the other team and taught them to stop being so nice. If someone falls, just keep playing. If the ball comes to you, don't stop it and then stand there asking for permission to kick it.
Today, they played great. Like a team. They owned that ball. They were all over it. And it was great. They were playing so well that I got out my camera and turned it to the video option to take a bit of video of them playing so well.
Lucky that I did when I did- I got video of the one goal they made today!! And it was the only goal of the game!!!
I would show it to you, but I can't get it to upload. I'll keep trying though.
After yesterday's practice, I understand soccer a whole lot more. I think the girls do to. And that's a good thing.
