The Miracle Season

In Theaters: April 6th

Synopsis: Based on the inspiring true story of West High School girls’ volleyball team. After the tragic death of the school’s star player Caroline “Line” Found, the remaining team players must band together under the guidance of their tough-love coach in hope of winning the state championship.

 

I am not a sports mom. At least I didn’t think I was. When my kids were younger they each participated in a few community sports but I did not push them. If there was something they really wanted to do I allowed them to take part but the motivation to participate had to come from them.

One of my children loved basketball. But that love and desire to participate didn’t start until he was in middle school. He was driven to succeed and practiced a lot. He ended up making the freshman high school basketball team and loved playing basketball with the team.

Unfortunately the next year when tryouts came along they cut a large portion of the players and he did not make the team his sophomore year. He was devastated as basketball had been his thing.

A friend suggested that he try out for soccer as their keeper was moving and they needed someone new to fill the spot. With no previous soccer experience he tried out and made the team. There was lots of learning, growth and injuries that took place over the next 3 years. It was challenging and full of celebrations and setbacks. But he perservered and I am proud of him for all the time and passions he put into his position on the team.

Being the goalie mom is stressful. Despite a team of players on the field, the keeper takes a loss and any goals scored on them very personally. Watching that can be heartwrenching to witness especially as a mother.

While I didn’t consider myself a sports mom things changed over the three years my son played soccer. I came to love watching him play. I went to nearly every game and both looked forward to and enjoyed the time I spent in the bleachers cheering him on.
