Trends in Kids' Soccer Team Names

Hybrid animals are popular this year in the 5-6 and 7-9 yrs groups: the Ligers, the Scorpion Sharks, and the Tiger Monkeys.

Then we have the Powerpuff-type names: the Fuschia Doughnuts, the Pink Icing, and the just plain The Pink.

In the older (10-13 yrs) division, we have the American Idiots and -- the winner! in my estimation -- the Traffic Cones.

Definitely a step up in sophistication for those 10-13ers.
