Could Soccer be the Best Team Sport for Kids?

By Joe Ulm
All things considered, I think soccer is one of the top team sports for kids and possibly, the best team sport. I’m biased, of course, but I think the case for soccer is pretty strong. However, before we get into all that, let’s establish a few things, first…

I’m on the sidelines watching one of our teams play. It’s a few weeks ago. As the game winds down to the last two minutes I realize it’s one of the best games I’ve seen all spring….

Kicking into Spring with Strength

Kicking into Spring with Thanks

By Joe Ulm

Wow do I ever love the first weekend of the season. From our Juniors teams to our High School teams, we’ll play over 50 soccer games this weekend! How fun is that?  PSC and Armory Park will be full of close calls, near misses, great victories, lessons learned, and maybe even a few memories that will last for years to come. This is what it’s all about; watching our kids play, cheering them on, watching them grow, and doing it all with friends and family. 

Like many of you, I’ll be running from one game to the next both Saturday and Sunday, but I’ll make as many games as I can.  If I’m at one of your games, please don’t hesitate to say “hi” because as many of you know, I really enjoy the sideline conversations with all of you.  To me, they’re a big part of the fun.

And to every parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, and neighbor…thank you so much all for all you do.  From the time spent driving to and from practices, to getting uniforms ready and everything in between, you are what makes all this possible. Thank you.

Good luck to all our teams this weekend. 

Go get ‘em PSU!  Together. United.
