  • 3v3 Soccer Tour

    Anybody ever hear of this?

    Just as I was beginning to kinda understand soccer, (I can recite but apparently will never learn to recognize "offside" when I see it.) I am confronted with a new (to me) form of soccer.

    With the reorganization of the leagues and the effective dissolution of the Mighty X-Men (183 W- 5 L- 2T in five seasons) my 10 year old grandson was recruited to play in a three on three soccer team which plays a summer schedule of weekend tournaments within a 150 mile radius. Smaller fields, smaller goals, smaller box, free substitution, no goalie, shorter games, no offsides...etc.
    (It is almost like when he started playing 4 on 4 at age five, except they are more skillful now.)
    Apparently it is nationwide and has been going on across town for years.

    The Red Knights debuted in a Tournament Saturday. Four games beginning at 0830 ( Temp a balmy 95 F), concluding 1630 (Temp 105F). This is not the powerhouse of the Mighty X-Men.
    They managed 2W, 1 L (on a freak defender headed into own goal) 1 T.
    Maybe it will grow on me.
