Our neighborhood church was offering soccer for 3 & 4 year olds this spring and Nora jumped at the chance to be on the same team as some of her friends. She signed up purely for the social aspect. She has seen Sawyer play soccer, but never really showed any interest in participating...so we didn't know what to expect.
She was very excited for the 1st game, especially after she received her uniform!
The first quarter she was pretty timid. She would kick the ball when it came to her, but wouldn't really follow the ball or go after the ball. Then toward the end of the 1st quarter she scored a goal and something clicked. She started running all over the court constantly trying to get the ball (no matter who had it ;) She was very focused and dare I say aggressive. By the end of the game she had scored 5 goals and we were all in shock!
The 2nd and 3rd game were more of the same. She was a go-getter and scored at least 7 goals in each game. Honestly we stopped counting.
The league is very low-key with no practices, only weekly games so she is still learning the rules. She need to practice defense and passing a bit more ;)
We couldn't be more proud (or surprised) of our little miss!
