Fall Soccer and Rotten Monkey's

Goodness gracious, this Little Monkey has permanently altered the game of soccer.
 It is no longer about the skill involved with getting a ball past a human shield and into a goal.

Oh no....


It's all about creative play


Refusing to follow any rules


and mass collaboration.


By the end of the game, the Little Monkey had created her very own set of rules.


When she decided it was time to sit down and reflect on her lack of participation and mastery of manipulation, she did just that...until it was time to call it a night!


The great thing about special needs soccer is that the Little Monkey is allowed to do all those things and still remain part of the team
because the biggest part of special needs soccer 
is just being a part of a team and forming relationships that never would have happened.
