Alec First Soccer Practice April 6, 2011

Our oldest had his first practice on Monday. He has had a couple camps or clinics that he has done since he was about three years old. And he says he plays a lot of soccer on recess at school. But this is the first time for him to actually be on a team.
He seems to love playing, but at his age and height, I wasn’t sure what to expect. It is probably just me, the proud father, but after watching him play and stay focused for the whole hour and a half (half drills and half scrimmage) I think he is going to have a great season.
The coach seems knowledgeable, balanced and most importantly focused on having the kids enjoy themselves and learn what they can about the game. I started playing soccer at about this age (without the prerequisite clinics) and I am pretty sure I did not know half of what he already seems to know. I think most of it is already intuitive for him, so it will be fun to see how far he wants to take this.
