As a family, we've been very impressed with Lookout Mountain's program for soccer! It is run by the soccer coach from Covenant. The 4-5yo group learns skills for about eight weeks during the fall culminating in one "game" at the end of the season. Today was that game. Playing three on three on a field about a fifth of a true soccer field, these boys did great!
Near the end of the hour of play, Jacob began to take a lot of initiative to get the ball and move it toward his team's goal. One time he even got it away from the pack and ran it all the way to the goal. There was no one around him, but when he tried to kick, he missed! He kept playing well, though, and at the end (when they let them play six on six) Jacob made the last goal. He was glowing with the fun and exhilaration of it all!
Jacob's three man group included his best bud, Bailey.
