Who 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.
And now Girls's soccer team Denmark in action! Field near Cavalier de LaSalle school:
Game against "Greece". 21 June 2012
Instructions and notes for Alice
In the beginning all girls were separated by teams. Each team was named after a country.
The Alice's team was named as "Denmark".
Our team ("Denmark") received yellow t-shirts.
Girls from team named "Greece" hit the ball toward our goal through the "wall".
And first game is over.

Game against "Ukraine". 3 July 2012
This is third game of Alice in whole her life! And she has improvement.
Unfortunately our team today has only 5 players.
Hot day, no substitution, against opposing team which has superiority in numbers... Our girls just exhausted.
In spite of girls are very tired they not surrender and even find objects for jokes.
Teams say bye for each other. After the loss mood isn't very good...
The game against the team "Russia". July 5, 2012
Today we play against Russia but they are not real Russians it is just name of their team.
"Russians" are very serious they even have tactical soccer map.
And now the game began.

Unfortunately we lost...
But after the game parents treat children ice cream - what is nice surprise!
Game against "Sweden". 19 July 2012
Today Alice is the team captain.
Sweden constantly attack
In cause of numerical superiority opposing team very often attack our goal. So nobody want to play as the goalkeeper. The coach made decision to choose the goalkeeper by a lot. And Alice become the goalkeeper.
Alice saved our goal "more than once"
