Basketball season is underway! The season officially began on January 9th with two weeks of practices. Unlike soccer season, which from the get-go includes one practice and one game each week, basketball starts off with two full weeks of practices before the games start. The reason for this is that, even at four, five, and six-years-old, the kids are expected to actually play the game the way it was intended to be played. The biggest challenge for the kids is dribbling, or at least their biggest challenge as of yet is dribbling - they really haven't even touched defense, which I imagine will be much tougher.
Here's Will as we were heading out the door to his first practice...
...and here are a few action shots from that first night.
We can't wait for Will's team (the Bulls) to actually play a game!
