Today is Garrett’s first soccer game of the season. To say he is excited is putting it mildly!! Of course I had to take the obligatory pictures of before the game!! I think he’s so darn cute!!
Practicing balancing the ball while waiting for his coach and team to arrive.
His coach arrived and Garrett went straight over to start warming up. Garrett is the number 9.
They do things a little differently in this league than they did in the Sidney, OH league. They split the teams and play two games. I personally do not like that they do this, but it does give Garrett more time out on the field which he loves. So for this game a parent that coached last year was Garrett’s coach for game time. They also have more players on one team. His team this year has twelve players.
He did so good!! He’s much more into what is happening this year where last year all he wanted to do was chase his shadow. He even made one goal during the game and lots more that were missed. Super proud of my little guy!!
Now he just needs to learn teamwork, like not taking the ball away from one of his teammates, and kicking it to one of the teammates that is open down the field. He’s definitely improved so much though and I really enjoyed watching him play!!
