Last spring my daughter played a preschool version of soccer where little kids kicked a ball around for an hour.
This Fall, Sydney is playing in a recreational soccer league. She’s in a coed division of kindergarteners where they actually play games. (Well, they play games as much as 5-year-olds can be expected to play games!)
We were lucky enough to get the BEST coach. He is kind, low-key, knowledgeable, and funny. As the masses of 5-year-olds attempt to play soccer, our coach has said the funniest things. Here’s a sampling:
“No talking. No talking. Don’t talk to each other.” This was after our two defenders were chatting away to each other and the opposing team literally walked by them and scored a goal.
“Keep your pants up in soccer. Keep ‘em up.” The boys on the team were taking their pants down and giggling.
“Don’t lay down. Don’t lay on the grass. Someone will step on you.” Yup, laying down on the soccer field does lead to being stepped on, now doesn’t it?
What’s the funniest or worse thing one of your kid’s coaches has ever said?
