Soccer, took interest because of my grandsons, never played a game myself. The boys are young and teams are sometimes coed and the girls kick butt. Soccer receives a lot of support here, and the oldest was selected for a two week soccer camp. Believe it is important to have kids into sports, help build character, teamwork and skills they will use throughout their life. Parents and grandparents take the sidelines and support them.
Getting older and a few spinal surgeries myself has made me into a bit of a gimp, takes a little to get around to start a day. My doctor says the same thing about swimming and forbids any strenuous work or activities. Just happy that I'm still mobile on my feet.
On some days think the "posse" is taking me for a walk however.
