Soccer Moms!

With Mother’s Day quickly approaching, it’s time to acknowledge the Soccer Moms! Soccer moms are the bloodline for our sports. They take us to our 6 am hockey practices before school… they sit through our boring soccer matches chanting embarrassing words of encouragement… then it’s everyone in the minivan, mom is taking us all out for ice cream after the game!

The History of the Soccer Mom

The term soccer mom comes from ancient times when cavemen didn’t come home for days hunting dinosaurs, so the cavewomen had to make sure the cavekids were busy playing Rockball and Dodo Egg Toss. They have now evolved into sophisticated fans of all the sports we play with the following common character traits:

Epic Appreciation

Recognizing soccer moms is important. It’s important to tell your mom how much you appreciate her constant sacrifices and hours and hours of waiting and watching your sports. If you didn’t have your soccer mom, you might find yourself walking around with a big bag of hockey gear, or annoying your friends to pick you up for late night games. Here is a list of things you can do to show your appreciation:

  • Score a goal and point at your mom in the stands
  • Wash and wax the minivan
  • Make a playlist of songs your mom would like to play on the way to the game
  • Buy your mom a nice magazine
  • Teach your mom the rules of the game

Endless Encouragement


So have a fun with your soccer mom on Mother’s Day. Get your whole family to get in on the fun and remember that if your mom is always encouraging you while you’re on the field, so she probably would love to hear some encouragement for her to keep up the hard work.

"FBGirl" wrote:I like cheerleading, but definitely NOT a sport! Sports are physical activity with competition and GEAR. The closest thing cheerleaders have to gear are pom-poms. And, yeah. Boys CAN cheerlead, but chances are they will be made fun of(not by me). Cheerleaders do A LOT of physical cheers and stunts, and we use ourselves instead of gear. A lot and most people underestimate cheerleaders for just some girls with poms and uniforms going "go team! yay!" because they have seen that in movies and tv. look up some cheer comp videos and still only some people with change their view of cheerleaders as girls on the sidelines doing uncreative cheers and stupid words to match. I hope this helped you understand a little bit more about cheerleading and cheerleaders. Peace Out!

All cheerleaders and coaches put A LOT of effort and time into making and practicing cheers. It is true that cheerleaders turn people and the players on...but it's much more than that. it's about having fun, teamwork, having some more fun, getting some exercise (uh that kinda makes it a sport right?), and great times with the other girls on your squad.   Rant over lol
