Yesterday Mac had her first game. She is a great defender! But that's because she loves chase. And she loves chase because she loves to run. In short, I think we have her in the wrong activity. She loves running up and down the court, but could care less about rebounding (understandable at this age), trying to get open for the ball, catching, dribbling, or passing. She just wants to run. We told her before the game that all we cared about was that she had fun and tried her best. She said she had fun and from what we could see she tried pretty well. What more could we ask for?
After the game we went out and celebrated with milkshakes and chips, two of her favorite things. We are excited to see where the season takes us and if she starts to get the hang of the game or not.
In the meantime, anyone know of a running club for 5 year olds?!?
