Handsome Hudson was out on the field late yesterday practicing control of the soccer ball before the game. I love watching his team play because they are learning so many life lessons. They have an awesome coach who lifts each player up while teaching them how to work together and share in each other’s triumphs, successes and even failures.

Focusing on the mechanics of the game teaches these kids concentration. What an exhilarating feeling of accomplishment to experience by learning discipline through good work ethic to be the best they can. Opportunities like this are priceless.

Dorie, Hudson is very fortunate to have a coach like that.  All to often coaches even at early levels are only concerned about winning and fail to teach.

The coaches son is on the team and several of the families are friends..I love how they put what is best for the kids first..... in a nuturing way! They play really well and are learning how to play for the good of the team.

Fun to see Hudson learning skills - both life lessons and those of the sporting variety. How fortunate to have a coach who knows how to inspire. Happy Sunday, Dorie.

Hi Dorie- so glad that HH is loving soccer. This is one of the reasons why sports can be so educational for children...and not just about the technique or skill. Love the quotes.

Hello Dorie - focus is a wonderful skill to hone.  At any age.  Hudson is definitely his "game face".

My husband coached competitive soccer for over 25 years and those kids all learned very important life lessons.  Love those photos of kids without masks as well!  We are still in mandatory mask wearing - with no end in sight!

Team sports are a valuable teaching tool for children.  My kids were competitive swimmers.  Swimming is mostly an individual sport, but in competition swimmers rack up points that help the team.
