Interesting note on wearing the FM system for a soccer tournament. They will not necessarily allow you do to this. I never, NEVER, considered that it might not be allowed. I had to walk up to each referee and show them the device, and explain what it is used for, as well as NOT used for (that it is not intended to allow the coach to call secret plays that only Delaney would hear). After talking to the first group of referees, and getting a lukewarm approval, Delaney found that it didn't work all that well, and was actually a bit distracting. I think she's gotten so used to hearing limited amounts on the field, that it was actually a bit overwhelming.
We will definitely try it again, maybe give her time to adjust to the noises, and see where to go from there. The referee that finally gave the o.k. made the comment "it's probably fine at U11 or U12, but with the older girls probably not". I guess they can't risk giving any advantage to a team??? I don't know- seems kind of silly to me, but then again, the coaches really should be giving most of the instruction during practice, and when a child is off the field prior to being out playing.
