    Every practice we would have a scrimmage, and the kids had to come up with a name for their team. The sillier the better, and it can't have been used before. So, for example, we'd have the Ferocious Hamsters against the Lego Monsters. As the ref, I had to use the team names in calling the game. The list of scrimmage team names was the highlight of the end-of-season banquet.

    We did the name thing last practice. We ended up with the Roaring Tigers vs. The Bellyache's. The kids loved it.

    In case any of you were curious,the first game went fantastic. 11 out of 12 kids tried their best (1 kid wanted no part of the field). We got the win and most kids are very eager to practice on Monday. Great day.

    The boys finished up their season this afternoon. They were the powerhouse of the Judge Dowd kindergarten soccer league. Officially no wins or losses, but truth be told no one ever really gave them a game. The majority of the kids really improved as the season went on. Overall a lot of fun

    Now we are trying to recruit enough kids to play indoor.
