What we learnt at Country Week
It may just sound like a week of playing soccer in rain, hail and shine.....but is so much more....
*Making new friends that quick become team mates
* Learning to give respect to those who give so much of their time
*That rain and cold are no deterrent to 12 and 13 year olds
*That our state is a big place and there are a whole bunch of other kids that are passionate about soccer too
*Having your mum as the team manager is not as bad as your son first thought.
*That sometimes you win and sometimes it is more about how you play the game
*It is vital to fill a young mans world with good male role models
*Dads are better at analyzing a game of soccer than mums
*Haircuts and coloured hair spray are the best fun you could add to playing the game
* That we would do it all over again ...after a few days of catching our breathe.
