20100619 Soccerfest - Week 1

First day of Soccerfest was great with approximately 40 players.  The day was cool and breezy making for a great weather experience.  And despite the errant sprinklers on Greer #1 that took out one side of the field, the players were able to divide into the appropriate U12 and U14+ groups.

The U12 players were a bit rowdy in the first hour.  A youth referee intervention to help manage the second hour addressed this problem well.  The second hour went more smoothly and the frowns changed to smiles.

U14, U16, U19  played together with arbitrarily chosen teams in the first hour, but after the halfway break at 11, divided into a boys vs girls lineup.  The play was wide open up and down the field and everyone had a great time.
