Casey has been talking about soccer for a long time, but has been hesitant to join a soccer team. We found a soccer clinic program run through Kids Love Soccer and hosted by our local recreation center. We signed both Casey and Quinn up for the soccer clinic. It runs about seven weeks on Saturday mornings. We attended the first session last Saturday. The weather has recently turned cold and cloudy, but that did not take away from the experience.
Quinn’s session was first and he had an awesome time! It was a lot of fun to see him running around and trying to use the inside of his foot to kick the ball and not his toe. His teacher was amazing! She was able to control twenty 3 and 4 year olds with ease!!!
Casey’s session was next and he also had a great time! Casey was able to convince two friends from school, Cole and Cash, to joint the clinic with him. Casey luckily got the same teacher that Quinn had.
It was a great morning of soccer and the apprehension that both Quinn and Casey had faded away quickly. In fact, Quinn, Casey Cole and Cash stayed after practice and played soccer for another hour!!! After that we bought the kids shin guards and soccer socks. The next day (Sunday), Casey wore the shin guards and socks around all day!!!!
