Would have thought that being non competitive, it would be more useful to report on a good game, with some comments on how well the kids played, knocked the ball around or the general events of the game.
Not to undermine the whole basis of SSF which is to not record scores.

Thanks Bluemoon. They are good kids who listen to the coach and always look up to see if they can pass the ball to a team mate. They've scored some lovely goals with 3-4 pass build ups. Are you saying I'm undermining SSF by reporting results?
The idea of ssf is for the coaches to teach correct technique and and movement amongst many other things. A team could be losing every game but being taught the correct things that will make the individuals and team as a whole better footballers in the long term.
It is so much easier to win games at this age by teaching kickball and bowing to parents wishes at winning. How many times have we heard parents/ coaches praising or telling players to kick it long or get rid of it.
That is why scores and tables are not recorded so coaches and players dont have the pressure of having to win. If there is not this pressure then they are more likely to pass the ball backwards or beat a player rather then playing it safe.
Please dont record these scores anywhere for your ego as you notice you are the only one to do so in all of these teams.
Let the kids play and learn without this pressure.
