Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Switching Goals is the aptly named 1999 Olsen twin TV movie about middle school soccer leagues and the damage a winning-at-all-cost philosophy can cause. The twins scheme to switch teams to match their differing skill levels, and they hide their plans from their highly ethical mother. Ultimately the girls and their dad learn there's more to soccer than winning. There's a subplot involving a tween crush.

Social Behavior

Although at first the twins and their coach-dad scheme to switch teams without telling the league (giving one team an unfair advantage), eventually they come clean. The more athletic sister helps the less skilled one improve. The dad comes to see that he can be a better dad if he's a little less competitive.
