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.
