Texas Spirit

TXSpiritIt's that time of the year when we have to pick which soccer team Briana will be playing with.  I actually hate this time of the year, because we're making a year long decision that ultimately someone's not going to be happy... namely the team that we're not going with.  It would be so much easier to stay with the same team.  Of course, that's what we'd REALLY like to do.  So, why a change?  For the last 3-6 months, Briana really hated going to practices, league games, and tournaments.  She lost her love for the game.  Why?  I really believe it's because she wasn't playing with her age group.  There were a large number of girls playing up into her age group.  The focus on "leave it on the field" soccer was not there from the younger players.

The decision to leave the previous team was a tough one because we grew some great relationships with some of the players/parents on the team and especially with the coach.

I'm happy to say that Briana will be playing with Texas Spirit 94 Girls White team based in Plano.  The smile is definitely back on Briana's face!  The girls on the team have welcomed her with open arms.  The team seems very focused and full of skilled players.  As well, we love the coach!

We cannot wait for a fun filled year of soccer!
