“Emily, wanna sign up for soccer?” “No!”
“Emily, wanna sign up for Tball? Tommy’s playing!” “No!”
“I just want to do ballet.”
That was how it went this past year. But did you know that you have to sign up your little Kindergartener-to-be for Fall Soccer NOW? I didn’t know any of this until my sister clued me in the other day. I guess us non-sporty types don’t get how it works – yet.
I’m thinking she’s going to be more into individual sports. She loves swimming and is dying to get on stage. But Mom took the bull by its horns on this one and thought ahead about all her little classmates who will be playing soccer. So I signed her up for Girls K Soccer!
“But Jack from preschool loves soccer. I wonder if you’ll be on his team?” “Ooooo.Kaaaay.”
So if you’re like me and don’t know anything about signing your kids up for sports in this wonderful town of ours, here’s how it works. Go to foxborosoccer.org and click on Fall Registration. You’ll be asked to set up a family profile and and charged $80. But hurry, because if you don’t sign up by May 30th, you’ll be have to pay a $10 late fee (and that goes for each kid!)
And so it begins. Sports. Practice, fields, cleats – hopefully we’ll figure it all out. And if she hates it, she never has to play again. YAY TEAM!
