Wolcott Warriors Banner

Good start to the season. The Wolcott Warriors Under 11 boys team got off to a winning start at home this afternoon.

Apart from getting a bit tired in the middle of the second half, the boys did a great job. I was particularly pleased with the discipline and sportsmanship of our players, parents, (and even the coaches!).

There are way too many people involved in youth sports who think that it’s OK to question and harass a teenage referee. Then they wonder why their players talk back!

Every season I remember anew the stress that by mind and body go through watching 80 minutes of kids kicking a ball around – you’d think I’d know better by now, but I always leave exhausted!
