We've been having practices every Tuesday and Thursday for 3 weeks now. Practices have been awesome! You can really see the growth of the kids just in the past few weeks. Our Coach is amazing. So nice and sweet. Anthony really digs her.
This year, Anthony is in the U1o division. There are only two U10 teams this year, so every single one of their six games will be played against each other. I wish we had more kids sign up to form more teams, but hey, you gotta work with what you got.
Games are every Saturday at 9. Anthony and his team, The Purple Jaguars, have two games under their belts now. They came up short, 1-3 their first game, but tied 4-4 this past one. You can see the determination on their sweet little faces. Really pushing it and giving the game their all. Last Saturday's game was also soccer picture day and the day Anthony was assigned to bring a snack. It was also a Farmers Market day for us! So it was a very busy, busy day of jumping between soccer and the Market. We made it work though, wouldn't miss a game!
It's so fun watching them and cheering the kids on! I have to admit, it gets pretty intense on the side lines! Haha, I'm actually not sure what's more fun...watching the kids play or watching how into the parents get, cheering the kids on and hearing all the "Great kicks!" and "That 'a boys!"
Go Purple Jaguars!
Keep up the great work, kiddos!!
