Today was the last day of winter soccer, the kids will be off for a month and then spring session will begin. The practice was shortened and the game started quickly because, it seems, there was something far more important to get to. There were trophies…
And everyone got one.
Which is good I guess, or maybe not.
My question is this – is it a good thing to give everyone a trophy for participating? Does that take anything away from the thrill of the sport? If there is no MVP spot to work for does the commitment stay the same to improve? Am I overthinking this entirely? As this is new for me I would love any and all feedback you might have from your own life experiences in this arena.
