I got my daughter's practice schedual for this fall. This is her first season playing with the big girls. She is on a U6/U7 team. Our son is on the co-ed team of U4/U5. My girl has practice twice a week. Monday she practices from 6:30-7:30 and then on Wednesdays from 5:30-6:30. For little kids pracitce is running late at 7:30 and these are kindergartners and first grades. Mind you my 5.5 year old goes to bed at 7pm most nights and sleep nearly 12 hours. she get's cranky when she doesn't get 12 hours of sleep. So I'm hoping that late Monday night practice won't make her two cranky on Tuesday mornings. She has school all day long. For both her and her brother they have games on Saturdays. Wish us luck because mommy here will be doing most of practices and we will be splitting the games between the two of us of who stays with which kid.

I remember those days being a soccer mom and constantly juggling between practices and games for my kids. yes, I'd say the Monday night schedule is rather late for young kids...

The bad thing is on Monday nights I have to bring the boys with me as well. My husband had classes on Monday night which is right next to the field but he starts at 7pm and she finishes at 7:30. I'm hoping the boys can handle and hour of watching her practice. If not I'll have to see if my sister in law or dad can take the boys till I'm done. My middle son is excited he gets to play this year last year he was sad and wanted to play as well.

@ShyBear88 my sons didn't start until U9 or U10, but I often saw the little soccer kids of U5 on the field and they're so cute playing so excitedly...

@sishy7 they certainly are and their reaction at that age is funny. My daughter was on the U4/U5 team last fall so I was very excited to see after sign up that they age the age requirement so now they do school age for placement instead just by age. At first when we did the registration I thought the kids would be together on the same team since they are only 18 months a part. Even though it'll be busy it should be fun.
