Russell Soccer: Timbits final kick of the season!

This weekend E had his closing soccer tournament of the season. It has been such a fun first season on the soccer field, and I have no doubt there will be many more to come.

I had really low expectations going into the season, but I was impressed with E's interest and commitment to this activity. Although there were evenings that he was tired, he always enjoyed it once he hit the field. He made lots of friends on and off the field, and of course the tasty team snacks at the end of every session didn't hurt either!

The organizers did well to mix up the soccer drills in the beginning, and kept it interesting. The last four weeks of the season were probably the most entertaining for the parents because they involved the teams playing mini-games.  This is where I think E started to fall in love with this game a little more. Once he figured out where the net was and how to score, he was into it - BIG TIME! He may need to work a little harder on staying in the game when he doesn't have control of the ball, but with a little more field time, I think that will come.

All in all, a very fun season for this little Timbit - #8. Thanks to Russell Soccer, the volunteers, coaches, and all the organizers who made this year possible.  We'll be back next year!
