Ben recently wrapped up his first official soccer season! He played a quick six-week co-ed session in the local league and had a blast. It was really fun watching Ben and his team progress throughout the year.
Typically, Ben had one practice and two games each week. The games were really sweet to watch. It turns out it’s very entertaining watching a bunch of 4 and 5-year olds running around trying to figure out what to do with a soccer ball.
When Ben is focused on soccer he actually is quite good! Most of the time, though, his energy is centered on his friends, doing jumping jacks or making sure his light-up shoes are lighting up. Oh, and making sure someone’s parents remembered to bring snack.
Towards the very end of the season we noticed Ben’s attention shifted and when he was out on the field he really was getting after it.
All in all, Ben had a great time playing soccer. He loved making new friends with his teammates and looked forward to his practices and games, especially when they included a post-game juice box.
