Ever since tryouts, the girls on my U11G Challenge team have been looking forward to the start of practice. A few have played some pickup together, gone to summer camp, played in 3v3 tournaments, etc. But this is a new team made up mostly of girls who have played coed in Rec, so they’ve been really looking forward to the season getting started playing with ‘all girls’.

So we have our first practice scheduled for today (agility and conditioning!), everyone is there except for a couple who were at a swim meet, and what does it do? Thunder and lightning and rain, oh my! We waited in our cars for a good 30 minutes hoping it would clear, especially when the sun came out halfway through the storm, only to slip away 10 minutes later. Needless to say, it didn’t clear up until much later.

Mother Nature is such a tease!
