So by now, you all should know that I am one of the Kellogg’s Moms (if not, read this post). Since we are right in the middle of prime time tailgating season, the SnackPicks team is having a virtual tailgate party on Twitter on Thursday, October 1 at 9:30 pm (Eastern) and I will be the Guest Panelist!

Just so you don’t get confused, I will be using my personal Twitter account (@charpolanosky) for the event (not @SportsGirlsPlay) so be sure to follow me and join the fun.

Casie Cathrea

Casie Cathrea, a 13 year old golfer from California, shot a hole-in-one at the CVS/pharmacy LPGA Challenge in Danville, Calif.  on Thursday. In the opening round – her first on the tour, she made a hole-in-one on the 155-yard 12th hole. AMAZING! Her score for the round ended up being 74, which is pretty good, considering she is a high school freshman and its her first LPGA tournament. She plays round two this afternoon – best wishes for another fantastic round!

A Great Insight Into Girls U-8 Soccer

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Soccer Crossing Street Sign Girl
A lot of my daughters’ friends play soccer – pulling on their shin guards, lacing up those cleats, and heading off to the field for practice or a game – just like so many other little girls across the world do each week. Eight and under is a great age group – they are old enough to “get it”, understand the rules and are starting to get past that giant “soccer worm” mentality.

Kimberly at the Silicon Valley Moms site wrote a great piece on her experience with girls soccer and her daughter being an U8. From her post:

More like “real soccer,” is how my daughter defined the U8 play. Real soccer indeed. Many of the girls may not even be four feet tall, but they play at a level rivaling my old high school team, complete with take away slides, shoulder bumps and attempts at tricky footwork. The skill growth is impressive, but more surprising is the cut throat competitiveness accompanying it.

Keep us posted Kimberly – sounds like it is going to be a fun season!
