FĂștbol femenino

Soccer is a huge sport in Uruguay, but not for girls. Field hockey is far more typical. My daughter was very disappointed when she heard that. In Kalamazoo, soccer is very big for both girls and boys. Most of my daughter's friends play on a team.

Luckily for us, girls and women have started playing soccer in Uruguay. My daughter started practicing with a team associated with Club Nacional, one of the major teams in Montevideo. She can't compete until she gets an official medical card. Her team has a very good coach and the girls have excellent ball-handling skills. They're fast, too. We watched them shut out their opponents 9-0 last Sunday.
