He took basketball last year, but it was not a session about playing games. They only learned how to dribble, do layups, pass, and run fast.
He was super excited about getting new basketball shoes. Last year we bought him blue Nike's that he loved, but he quickly complained about his feet hurting. We went with adidas' this year. It's too bad because the Nike's still fit. I didn't want his feet hurting when he played.
Their first game came and went on Saturday. They lost, but I was proud as to how hard they tried. The team they played was good! Not only did they have players that seemed to know what they were doing, but they also had more players to bench a few kids to give them rest. Most of the boys on Isaak's team have never played before. They only had one practice, one hour long prior to playing. They don't have enough kids to give each kid a break, so they played hard. They hustled up and down the court.
Look at Isaak trying to be ready when the other team got done with free throws.
One boy that Isaak does go to school with carries their team a lot. He's got a lot of energy, and a Dad that knows the game well.
Isaak's already learned a lot. I'm hoping he just gets better and better.
Did you get into sports when you were younger?
