[CHANTING CONTINUES]

[]

Do you wanna be

The President?

Or walk on the moon?

Play at a stadium?

Or would you rather

Dye your hair

- Green, purple, or blue?

- Whoa, oh

The world is your canvas

Do what you wanna do

We are who we are

- We'll rise to the top

- Whoa, oh

Get ready, 'cause we're

Coming fast, ready or not

Call me crazy, say my head's

Too high up in the clouds

It will make a difference

Yes, I can do anything

I put my mind to

Superstars come in

Many colors

- Whoa, oh, oh, oh

- We're always dreaming

- Whoa, oh, oh, oh

- We're always dreaming

- Whoa, oh, oh, oh

- We're always dreaming

Superstars come in

Many colors

We are who we are

- We love who we love

- Whoa, oh

Get ready 'cause we're

Coming fast, ready or not

Call me crazy, say my head's

Too high up in the clouds

It will make a difference

Yes, I can do anything

I put my mind to

Superstars come in

Many colors

[CROWD CHEERING]

- Whoa, oh, oh, oh

- We're always dreaming

Superstars come in

Many colors

[REAGAN SIGHS]

[IMITATES EXPLOSION]

[LAUGHS]

[SIGHS]

Today is the big day,

Alex.

[SIGHS]

[]

Think I'm ready.

I think.

But just in case, from

one Number 13 to another,

got any tips for me?

Heh, heh.

LOGAN:
Are you talking

to your poster?

You want a tip?

Push-ups.

One.

- Two. Three.

- [SCOFFS]

Four. Five. Six. Seven.

LOGAN [DISTANTLY]:

Eight. Nine. Ten. Eleven.

You can stop now.

LOGAN:

Thirteen. Fourteen.

[REAGAN SIGHS]

Today's the big day!

Yes, it is. The Michigan coach

is coming to meet

Logan today after school.

They're talking scholarship.

Yeah, okay, right, but aren't

you forgetting something else?

- Is UCLA coming today, too? Uh...

- No, no, no, not about Logan,

- or Logan's football, about my...

- [PHONE RINGS]

ANNE:
Excuse me. Has

anyone seen my keys?

Go for Joe.

Hello, Coach.

- ANNE:
What?

- [MOUTHS] Alabama.

[WHISPERS]

Yes!

JOE:

Yes, sir?

REAGAN:

Can I get a ride today?

- [CELL PHONE RINGS]

- Uh... Ooh. Hold on, honey.

ANNE [IN NORMAL VOICE]:

Hello?

Clemson.

- Uh, yes.

- Thank you very much, sir.

ANNE:
Thank you so

much for calling.

I'm gonna go move to Alaska

and join a cult.

ANNE:
Oh, yes, we are so proud of him.

He's a great kid.

JOE:
Yes. Absolutely, coach.

Looking forward to it.

REAGAN:
You're gonna

ship my stuff, right?

LOGAN:

Seventy-six, 77, 78.

- [SIGHS]

- LOGAN:
Seventy-nine.

- [BELL RINGS]

- [PEOPLE CHATTERING INDISTINCTLY]

And they totally

forgot about my tryout.

Well your brother kinda

is the best quarterback

this city's ever had.

- Et tu, Grace?

- Kidding.

I know something

that'll cheer you up.

Have you seen the cute boy

that just moved here?

And I heard he plays soccer.

Hi, Ben!

GRACE:

Ugh, Claire Bishop.

That girl has

to have everything.

Good luck today.

You've got this, Regs.

[CHAIN CLATTERING]

What? Uh.

Oh, no, no, no.

You gotta be kidding me.

[CHAIN CLATTERING]

[]

OZ:
For those of you

who don't know,

I'm John Osbourne.

Coach Oz.

The great and powerful.

But with me, there's no man

behind the curtain.

In your daughter's

soccer world,

I'm all powerful.

All knowing.

I wish I could say

welcome to Crush tryouts,

but I'd be lying.

Today's tryouts are a welcome

to a small number of you.

And a wish you goodbye

to most.

Even if you played

for me since

you were 6 years old,

today you could get cut.

I do not play favorites.

Let me repeat that,

I do not play favorites.

[CLAIRE CLEARS THROAT]

Hey, Claire!

There's my little champion.

Hope we get to see

that kick today. Yeah.

- [REAGAN PANTING]

- [CHAIN CLATTERING]

I'm not trying to be rude,

I'm just simply

stating fact.

We are the number one

girls' soccer club in the state.

We have won the Diamond Cup

three years in a row,

s-so simple math states

that you, you, you...

Not you, girl.

...You, you, you or you,

are not Crush material.

Enough with the pleasantries.

Let's get started.

[BLOWS WHISTLE]

Yellow brick road time.

Munchkins over there.

Let's go! Pretend like you wanna

play something! Maybe soccer!

[]

OZ:
Waiting to see

something good, ladies.

[CHAIN CLATTERING]

OZ:

You call that soccer?

OZ:
You need to do

better out there.

All right,

line up for the next drill.

Winners always line up.

[PANTING]

You're late.

REAGAN:
Yeah, I know. I know.

I'm sorry. Um.

My bike chain

came off, and I...

- [BLOWS WHISTLE]

- Mm.

That's an excuse.

I don't like excuses.

Y-Yes, yes, yes, sir.

Sorry, sir.

Although, um...

It's not so much an excuse

as it is what happened, and...

[BLOWS WHISTLE]

What position are you?

I'll play anywhere.

But usually striker.

[IN UNISON]

Ooo.

[BLOWS WHISTLE]

This is not how

we play Crush soccer!

In fact, this is not how

you play any kinda soccer.

You might as well be playing

baseball or basketball.

That's enough of y'all.

You don't even line up

like Crush soccer.

Hey, Claire!

Focus out there.

Show her who

the real striker is.

[]

Ugh! Ow! Uh!

[BLOWS WHISTLE]

Uh, Claire, it was great,

but save it for the game.

Did you see that?

My bad, coach.

I was just trying to

play aggressive like

you always tell us. Not dirty.

Good job.

[GRUNTS]

Sorry, slipped.

Striker.

MOTHER:
It's okay. There's

always next time.

- Hey.

- [IN UNISON] Number 4.

- Kids didn't stand a chance.

- All right, yes!

My little champion

right there.

TOM:
She'll get you another
