There are 8 kids on Mason's team. During their first practice, they basically just kicked the ball up and down the field and later played keep-away with Coach John. Seth and I realized that Mason has to learn two rather simple truths:
1. Don't touch the ball with your hands.
2. LISTEN to Coach John, and DO what he says.
Once he gets this down, he'll be good to go. We had the best time watching our little guy run up and down that soccer field. He has practice on Mondays, and his first game will be on September 19. They actually don't even keep score for this age group so it's really just more for fun than anything else.
