This was his first time having to actually kick the ball with some controlled direction. Kick and run and kick towards a goal. Kick and run and kick around the cones. I think he did excellent for his first time. Am I stressing "first time"?
I am so proud of him. He was very excited. He thought he would be the winning player. I told him that I would be proud if he won or lost...and that the important part was that he tried his best and had fun!
None of us know the actual rules of soccer, so I guess we'll all learn together. Today is the first day of practice. We will get to meet our coach and the other players who have been selected to be on this team. More to come later. For now...some pictures of tryouts:
Wonder what soccer players have under their shorts
