Remember a few months ago when I told you about Maggie’s new found love for soccer?  If so, you’ll also remember that I was a total soccer dummy – I knew nothing!

Maggie Practicing Soccer

I’m happy to report that since then, the Soccer for Dummies book has me well on my way to being a pro soccer mom. We are getting ready to sign Maggie up for her first soccer team after Christmas and the more we practice with her, the more I’m learning about the game – and we’re having fun too.

Here are few of the tips I learned from the book –

The Soccer for Dummies book has made me feel more confident and I’ve been able to join in on the fun of teaching Maggie the rules of the game.

And you can count on me to be there at every game with my Soccer for Dummies book just within my reach!

    I know absolutely NOTHING about soccer but if any of my kids decide they want to join up, I will definitely check out this book! Thanks!

    • Carrie with Children

      This book has really helped me a lot. I’m a total newbie!

  • Becca - My Crazy Good Life

    I own this book! I used it when I started playing soccer a few years ago, and then kept it for when the boys played I need lots of refreshers 🙂

    • Carrie with Children

      Yay! I’m so glad to hear you have it too! It’s been a big help for me.

  • Kerri O

    OH, as a homeschooling mama I could use that book!

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh yes, this would be a great tool for teaching!

  • Ashley

    My husband has been playing soccer his entire life and looks forward to coaching our daughter one day. This book would be perfect for me since I don’t know much and would love to support them both.

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh Ashley, it sounds like you and I are on the same path – my husband played soccer his whole life too! I’m clueless, but this book has been a huge help for me.

  • Hanan

    This is great! My oldest just started soccer this year, but doesn’t know much about the game. I’ll have to get this for her (well us) to read.

    • Carrie with Children

      Yes – this would be a great book, tons of helpful information. Thank for stopping by, Hanan!

  • Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell

    I’m getting a video error. 🙁 But what I remember is keeping them hydrated and having a snack on hand. I remember we gave them oranges a lot!

    • Carrie with Children

      Oh no 🙁 So sorry you are getting an error – running off to investigate now. Thanks for stopping by, Liz! xo

  • Jackie

    I played soccer in high school and my oldest does as well. But I’ll be honest… I don’t remember all of the rules. That’s okay though… I’m there to cheer her on!
