These pictures are from her 1st game. She's had another game since and will play 6 more...plus have 6 more practices. I was asked to be an assistant coach, so I try to help out at practices and every other game since the main coach has classes every other weekend. It's been interesting! I don't know/remember much about basketball, let alone know how to teach it to kids, so thankfully I'm not the main coach! LOL!
The kids do a great job for their ages. They're Kindergarten and 1st graders. While they're playing they put on a color band that matches with a kid from the other team (that is at a similar skill level) for them to guard. Right here they're lined up with the kids from the other team so they can see who'll they'll be guarding for that period.
Each game starts with a prayer and then they play six 6 minute periods. They don't worry too much about things like traveling and double dribbling right now, so the games can run a bit smoother.
Being that this is a Christian-based program, I'm hoping it's something Morgan enjoys and will want to continue. They even have devotions at practice, so they can learn more about God's love...I think that's pretty cool! ;-) If basketball doesn't end up being her thing, they also have cheerleading, so we'll wait and see how the next 6 weeks go and how she feels about doing it next year....I think it'll be fun if she and Blake will want to play together! :-)
