The entire weekend was a fantastic learning experience for my daughter not only for the soccer side of it, but for the real world experience of having to come together as a team with players you have never met and being coached by coaches who have never coached you. When these girls go off to college, they will be playing with girls they’ve never met and playing for coaches that they haven’t had a ton of experience with. They were able to play with girls from all over, which gave them an excellent perspective on where they fit in the world of soccer. My daughter kept saying, “I just didn’t know how girls from other areas played.” She had a fear that she wouldn’t measure up to girls from other states, but that was not the case at all. This weekend helped boost her confidence as a soccer player and as a an individual. She can’t wait to participate in another event like this!
