It’s no secret that the OnBalance family is a soccer family. My experience playing soccer is limited to one year as a Honey Bear– a team which scored only one (own) goal all season, but we sure were cute.
My husband’s soccer experience is even less than mine. But that hasn’t stopped him from coaching The Monkey’s team for the last three years.
Our kids have been the reason we’ve become fans of The Beautiful Game, and it’s been one of the great surprises of my adult life: Being soccer parents is actually fun! Having kids involved in the sport has also given us the chance to host coaches from Brazil and England. All of this while the kids get some exercise, learn teamwork, and enjoy one of the most world’s most social sports.
While the popularity of professional soccer lags in the US as compared to other parts of the world, we are lucky to live in Austin, the home of the Austin Aztex. The Aztex play in the USL now, which means we have the opportunity to watch quality soccer, close to home, at family-friendly prices. Our kids have learned so much about the sport by watching live games.
