Soccer Match: Rose Marie Academy vs Magic Years
On May 4, 2016, Magic Years and Rose Marie Academy (RMA) organized a soccer match for grade levels 1-4. The format of the games was unusual; we decided to mix all the students from Magic Years with the students from RMA. This made for a total of three teams ─ yellow, purple, and orange. Each team had about six players. Two teams would play while another one would sit. Each game lasted seven minutes with no overtime. Each team played a total of eight games, and at the end of four games there were five-minute intermissions. Students rotated out for goalie and other positions before each game started.
The students had a blast. There was a healthy but competitive environment. The games were played in our enclosed sports court so being out-of-bounds was not a problem. This kept the games upbeat and energetic. There were fantastic goals scored, amazing blocked shots, and great team effort. Students are already talking about how they are ready and willing to practice to improve for the next game.
