We played soccer during soccer season, basketball during basketball season and baseball during baseball season. I may have played soccer year-round because that was my passion, but we never had organized training or year-round games like they do now. Our idea of playing a sport out of season was meeting your friends at the park or at someone's home and we just played by ourselves. No training regimen, no fitness workouts, no coaching, no referees. Just good, fun competition followed by cookies and Kool-Aid.
