Awesome update! And I so agree with the participation awards. Dd plays hockey - they keep score, teams lose, winning teams get trophies. Its motivating. She gets aggravated that other sports don't do the same at her age. I think the competitive piece and winning and losing teaches kids so many life skills that transcends sports.
