Terry (Assistant Coaching Director): The red division is our only division who doesn’t have a repeat division leader, but they were also the first division to get their team up and running; the whole division was doing passing exercises and I want to give Juan a big big shout out. So day 1 he was on the ball from the get go, he was organized and had them going. The youngest division is the hardest to get doing soccer stuff so Juan, big shout out, that was great!
Cara (Red Division): Sara was doing curriculum and she said her dream was to write a cook book, and she was telling kids about cooking, and that must have made an impression because at least a few kids on my team drew themselves as a chef or drew themselves cooking on their dream bubble and that was pretty awesome. The influence of influential people in your life.
Alice (Orange Division): We have one of the quietest girls in our division. She wrote on her dream bubble “ I want to get to know everybody in the world and help everybody until the day I die.” It was really sweet. I went back to her and I said I read her bubble and I’m really proud of her, and she got really shy but she was really happy
Bassim (Blue Division): I’m going to tell a story about the girl who was queen from our division. When we were sharing dreams, people were like “I’m going to be a cop or a fireman," and when it was her turn she said “I want to stop babies from being killed, especially babies with down syndrome." She has someone in her family with down syndrome, so it was personal to her.
Monty (Green Division): One of the bubbles from the dream board was to learn something every day and I thought that was really ambitious.
Adam (Logistics): I’m Adam. In case you haven’t noticed we carry a lot of water. Your kids drink it and throw the cups on the field and then we refill it and replace it. In case you didn’t know it there are 6 gallons of water in those jugs and 6 gallons is pretty heavy. And tonight for the first time in soccer nights history we had 2 wagons to help us carry the water. At one point during the night I was going to fill the green division and this little boy came up behind me , he was like 5 years old and he wanted to look inside. So he’s following me down the field helping me push it, but also slowing it down, helping me push it. And then when I emptied all the jugs out he wanted a ride back in it so I let him. So that was fun
Kai (3-5 Year Olds): So tonight we were playing red light green light. There was a little girl who WAS CALLING red light green light and another girl who ran in to her and knocked her over and she was upset. The girl who ran into her said I’m sorry and gave her a big hug and a giant kiss on the cheek. It was nice to see her apologize so nicely.
Elissa (Curriculum): Someone's dream in the orange division was to be a VIP. Thanks to everyone for doing such a great job!

We need your help this Sunday to transfer all the Soccer Nights equipment & supplies to the field. We're short-staffed this session and could use all the help we can get! Last session was amazing - we had several vehicles and were able to take just 1 trip! If you are available to help - car or no car - please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Dani, Assistant Coach, Red Division- “I was part of the Red Rockin’ Hawks and we won which was awesome, but it was really great to see their sportsmanship with each other. They didn’t boast about winning. They were cool about doing the high five thing and they actually earned a lot of crowns for that. I think my best memory was Nathaneal who joined our team late in the week. He didn’t know the other kids, but he came in with the best team spirit ever. Every time we played a match, he was cheering for our team like crazy. And it was really cool to see.”
