My Players Have Become Competitors

By Coach Mike B.

Played one of the “top” teams this week and my guys played them very tough. It was raining – which for Southern California kids is a novelty – but they played great.

The highlight this week was from the referee who has refereed several of our games. Her comment was “Your team has the most heart I have ever seen in a U10 team. Your team doesn’t quit, plays hard from beginning to end”. She made this remark because we salvaged a tie with a furious comeback in the 4th quarter, which has happened several times this year.

I say this only because your detractors always claim you don’t promote competition. Your program – championed by the 1v1 – has turned our players into tremendous competitors, the envy of our league. Very ironic, indeed.

Still need to work on shooting. That’s the topic for this weeks practice. We missed a couple of point blank shots that we shouldn’t have missed.

Take care – Mike B.
