Playing For Fun 

Today was Young William's last AYSO Under-6 soccer game. A big part of the Under-6 soccer experience is that there are no winners or losers. This is admirable, we want the little guys to learn to enjoy the game before we start tracking the score. This works pretty well on the sidelines; all the parents are cheering and wooting whenever anybody gets near the ball. (Digression, Under-6 soccer teams have 6 players and there are 3 kids playing at one time on a very short and narrow field) But out on the field it's a different story. Whenever a goal is scored there is delay getting to the kickoff caused by 6 5 year-olds arguing about the current score. It would make the game get restarted a bit faster if we tracked the score so the ref could just tell them the score.
