This season has been very pleasurable to watch my son play soccer with Coach Kelly Pugh. He is very supportive & encourages the kids with any of their difficulties they may each have. It also seems like the teams are matched the best this session because in the past previous teams we have been on the teams were unfairly chosen. It showed as a whole whose teams were ranked with the “elite “ players & who were not!
Respect for the sport and for those who play and lead.
I overheard a coach ask the kids after the game what the “word of the game” was. The word happened to be “encouragement”, he then proceeded to name all the ways they were encouraging during the game. It was such a great teachable moment.
