#SportsLife Tweet Chat – Soccer Parents Outline

It’s that time already! Two weeks ago I posted about the unique opportunity we offer fans to chat with Kristine Lilly, yesterday I posted about the importance of our Soccer Parent Survey , and today I’m bringing it all together for a major event tomorrow. Kristine Lilly + Soccer Parent Survey =  #SportsLife of Sports Parents tweet chat.
