Sweet Senior Soccer Season

girls high school soccer teamSpring soccer has started for Dragonwing ambassador Emma, and wow, is she excited! In her recent blog post — complete with ALL CAPS and 4 exclamation points!!!! — she recounts the somewhat surreal feelings of the spring semester of senior year.

Senior night will be for me.  It’s my last year in the CA jersey. Whaat.

Despite twinges of nervousness after not playing for 10 months — “I had no idea how good or bad I would be getting back into it” — her overwhelming feeling was how much she loves the sport and the competition.

Emma has high hopes for the team’s season. “I think our team is pretty stacked, and I personally believe a state championship is in our future.”

Isn’t that how every season should start? Subscribe to Emma’s blog so you can follow along.

 

Every Year is a Good Year

“TIme flies when you’re having fun” goes the old saying. If that’s true (and I believe it is), 2014 was a very fun year.

Here at Dragonwing, we’ve met hundreds of wonderful girls and their families — at soccer, lacrosse, and volleyball games, at photo shoots and trunk shows, and on our Customer Service line. We expanded our line of girls’ performance wear with our Mini and Low-Rise Un-Dee compression shorts and new sports bras. We’ll be introducing some new athletic clothing for girls in 2015, so stay tuned!

Dragonwing girl and blogger extraordinaire Emma recently wrote about her simple — and fun — trick for remembering the special moments, big and small, that happen throughout the year.

Every year is a good year, it just might be tough to remember why. So, to solve that exact problem, starting January 1st of last year, I decided I was going to write down all of the highlights from the year. After every fun day, exciting night, or memorable moment, I would write down all the details of the great day. I like to include the tiny details…that can only be remembered if they’re written down.

Back to School Bittersweetness

Remember the Staples TV commercial from a few years back? Dad skipping along the aisles, flanked by droopy kids, while “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” plays overhead?

Back-to-school can be bittersweet for everyone. As she starts her 12th year of school (13th counting kindergarten), Emma calls it “the best and worst time of the year.” Seeing friends, making new ones, and starting soccer season are big pluses. Homework assignments, college applications, and less sleep can take its toll.

In her latest blog post, she’s got some great tips for making the transition as smooth as possible. Check it out and leave a comment with what helps you keep a positive outlook at school.

Say Hello to Emma and Sarah!

We’re thrilled to introduce two new Dragonwing girlgear bloggers: Emma and Sarah.

Emma, who’s now blogging here as EmmaH, is a high school senior who loves soccer, socializing with friends and family, watching Netflix, exercising, and lots more! She joined the Dragonwing team this summer and is helping us with marketing and retail partnerships.

I love to dabble in lots of other forms of exercise including hot yoga, group workout classes, swimming, biking, hiking and sometimes, although rarely, running.

Sarah, blogging here as SarahG, is a self-proclaimed “swim mom,” runner, writer, and former track and field athlete. As the mother of two teens, she has lots of great insights plus a big dose of humor.

[A]s an athlete myself I knew all the benefits of training and competition—camaraderie, friendships, challenging yourself, making a commitment and sticking with it, dealing with disappointment, taking care of your body and honoring its strength and power.

Subscribe to their blogs so you’ll get an email whenever they have a new post. You’ll be glad you did — we promise.
