It was a hot day with the Temperature in the shade 31 C (that is high 90s F) In the full sun with high humidity it had a real feel of 40C.(104 F). The soccer clubs, each team divided up by age, were scheduled to play 3 games for the House League Soccer Festival. My husband and I went to cheer on our almost 8 year old Grandson. We met our daughter at the park, set up our chairs and unfurled our umbrellas to give us a bit of shade.
Our Grandsons first match was at 11 am and his team was in fluorescent green shirts. The whistle blew and they were off and running .
The match had two 20 minute periods but due to the heat the coaches could call time out and the team could get some shade in this tent and have a drink of water.
It was fun for us to watch the kids play. Most of us adult were sweating just sitting and watching! With soccer over our Grandson will be back to school soon and then skating for the winter months.
