Astrid started playing soccer last year. We were happy that another one of our kids gave it a try after Eloise screamed and ran away from the ball when she was three. We think that Astrid has a bit more of a competitive spirit and look forward to more time field side in our fancy parent chairs as we watch many more games!
And being new to the soccer field and not knowing where to start with buying gear, I just headed to the sporting goods section at Target(after buying milk and most likely cat food and also a cute dress that I didn’t really need but couldn’t resist…), and they had everything she needed – from a cute pink ball to shin guards and socks! Easy!
She’s cute..but be afraid…be very afraid….
In fact did you know that Target is now the home of soccer for families with a commitment to youth soccer and becoming the official jersey sponsor for our new local team Minnesota United FC!! So very cool! Now you can easily find the gear you need at great prices during your next Target run! Fun fact – Target sold one million soccer balls in 2016! WHOA!
Target is also the presenting sponsor of the MLS All-Star game against Real Madrid on August 2nd! We are hosting our own #Homegating party to watch with family and friends! Don’t miss this great night of sports!
In the meantime, may your nights watching your kids be bug free and full of fun and family…and maybe a few snacks from Target!
What is your favorite thing about soccer?
