Can I just express a few concerns, you know as his mother...the one who has to clean up the boo boos and wipe the tears.
My hubby and I made the decision at the first practice to place our little shrimp with a younger age bracket of players. He should/could be in the 6-8 year olds. I took one look at these kids and gasped. They were at least 6" taller and a good 15 lbs heaver than my little guy. I know, I know, I know....don't count out the little guy. I didn't...I counted broken bones and sprained body parts. I literally freaked out. So we moved him to the 4-5 age group. Yes, he is now the big kid...but, the skill level seemed to match up better.
I'm trying to remain positive...but at this moment, I'm going to say I am a much bigger fan of soccer than this basketball stuff. Although, he looks so cute in his jersey and basketball shorts! Wish us luck! Go Vols!!!
