The world of children’s soccer can be scary for moms that have never played soccer or are unfamiliar with team sports like I was. They rarely have a new soccer mom information packet when you start! These articles can help.
My husband is very familiar with soccer, football, wrestling etc but since he is always at work, it falls to me to shuttle the kids around. Pork Chop started playing soccer at our local YMCA when he was four. We’ve been through many seasons now and he’s stuck with the sport.
For a somewhat socially awkward mom, the first few seasons were a little nerve-wracking for me. I didn’t know what to get for him, how to put it on him, and how to occupy Pea while also keeping an eye on Pork Chop during practice.
I’m sharing some tips for new soccer moms from my experience as a former new soccer mom. Since our life pretty much revolves around the soccer fields during the season, it tends to be on my mind quite a bit! Feel free to ask any questions of offer up advice in the comments below.
