This is the boys first year playing basketball. Kevin is coaching and so far they are really liking it. The team consists of 5 and 6 year olds, so there are kids in pre-k, kindergarten, and 1st grade. They have learned a great deal and I think Kevin is doing a great job teaching them the skills needed to be successful in basketball.
Conner cheesing before the game starts for me!
Lined up and ready to go
I just love them!
We have learned a lot about the boys that we didn't know before. Conner and Jace both have a bit of their mom in them. When it comes to stealing the ball or getting aggressive about keeping the ball they are pretty timid. It's like they are saying, "here take the ball, just don't hit me!"
Conner doing the tip-off
Conner is number 8, Jace is number 9 and the best way I could tell them apart was by their shoes on the court. They have different shoes and I have never been happier I did something different for each of them. It made it a lot easier to tell them apart!!
Their team ended their season really well. They only lost two games and they improved dramatically each game!! I am so proud of them and I am glad they love playing basketball.
