I've said it before, soccer is a great sport for kids. Early on, as long as a child enjoys being outside, running, and chasing a ball, they can enjoy soccer...and what kid doesn't enjoy being outside, running, and chasing a ball. Fall soccer is great. The weather is usually a little more stable that the spring season. It may be chilly, but thunderstorms are not usually an issue. However soccer does have it's ups and downs.
