The best part of youth soccer

My favorite part of youth soccer this year is how, at the end of each game, all the parents line up across the field in two lines with their hands held up over their heads. The kids do a quick cheer with their coach and then run down this tunnel of parents who cheer for both teams.

You should see the smile on all the kids faces as they beam with joy. Both teams run together and it’s a wonderful example of sportsmanship. It also leaves everyone feeling good regardless of how a child played.

It’s worth attending a game if just to see the happiness of these 30 kids. They must feel so special. What a fantastic tradition.
