Tayson's First Season of Soccer

We just wrapped up Tayson's first season of "First Touch" soccer. It was a blast!! Justin and I coached the team, and I think we had more fun than Tayson. Our team consited of 10, 3 year olds. We had 3 girls and 7 boys. They all seemed to love it and we had a great season!

The name of our team was the "Land O'Frost Lizards". We started practicing in August and practiced once or twice a week, and typically had one or two games a week. I am proud to say, we finished the season UNDEFEATED!! (not that it really matters at this age, but I thought it was neat anyways!)

Coaching and watching three years olds play soccer is one of the funniest things I have ever seen. Some of them "understand" what is going on, while others...NOT SO MUCH! Tayson kind of went back and forth between the understanding, and NOT SO MUCH. Some practices and games he was really into it, and then like a light switch, it would change.

After our last game, we had a soccer party at Guido's Pizza in Springdale. Justin and I had trophies made for all of the players and I think they loved them. They were all so excited to have a trophey with their name and number on it.

All in all, we had a great season and can't wait until Spring!

Tristin practicing with us!

Tristin wanted to be on the team SO bad!
