Soccer season is just around the corner, so this is for all you soccer moms (and dads) out there. You know as well as I do that soccer game days can be very hectic. Wouldn’t you like to lose a bit of the chaos? Here’s how…
1. At the beginning of the season, tape each kid’s game schedule to the inside of a cupboard door. This makes it easily accessible and you will always know where to find it.
2. When writing the games in to your planner or on your calendar, use a color code system to keep siblings straight (e.g., blue for one kid’s games, red for another, and so on)
3. On the evening before, lay out each kid’s uniform, cleats, shin guards and ball on a chair. Each kid will then know exactly where everything can be found, and you’ll know that it’s clean and ready to go.
4. Place clean and empty water bottles by the kitchen sink in preparation for filling the following morning.
Follow these four simple guidelines for a less stressful day of soccer fun. I promise that 8AM game won’t be quite so hair raising. Have fun! Play hard!
