Soccer for girls in Lasalle – Denmark team in action!

Soccer for girls in LaSalle - MontrealWho can surprised women football or even soccer for girls today? :) My wife and I found an information in local newspaper about soccer for girls in LaSalle. Although soccer is not very popular in our family we decided to try our daughter in this sport just for diversify. Why not? This is sport.
Alice never play soccer before and she had not an idea about rules… During first games Alice took the ball by hands several times…  And she was surprised when she is explained that it is inappropriate in soccer.
