I enjoyed reading the other thread but I had a different kind of parent encounter... Last night was the final of the Crown City Tournament under the Coronado Bridge. My DD's team was playing a local San Diego Club. Being a local tournament, their sideline was overflowing, vocal and supportive. It was a good match, fairly equal. My DDs team went up 2- 0 in the first half, and maintained their lead to win. After the match, a father from the other team walks over to our parents to compliment our kids on the level and style of play and congratulate our parents on their DD's win. That's the kind of sportsmanship that would make club soccer better for our kids.
