Ready for Soccer!
Soccer season is starting again in our area. Primo had his first practice yesterday, and it looks like his team will be a great bunch. He is playing U8 on a team called the Racers, and for the first time in the four years he's been playing, he actually has friends on the team!
Last year was our first in the U8 division, and Primo's coach was quite talented. He treated the group like they knew what they were doing and took the time to teach them about the greats of the game. My son really grew in skills and enthusiasm as a result of that experience.
This year's team is a little younger (of course, my son is a little older, too). So, it will be fun to see them gain confidence and start working together. After last night's practice, we already know they're experts at having fun!
What we like about our soccer league is that it is entirely run by volunteers. We have been so blessed to come to know some really fantastic families through our son's participation. I'm sure this season will be no different. Besides, what better excuse is there to get outside as a family and have fun together?
We'll keep you updated with photos and recaps. We're looking forward to a great season.
