Zoey started playing recreational soccer a few weeks ago. At first, we weren’t so sure she was going to make it through the season. Our daughter is not the most athletic kid and truth be told, she’s a little flighty. But my husband and I both agree that kids learn so much from participating in team sports so we crossed our fingers and started bringing her to practice.
There are 4 teams in her age group. They practice once a week on Wednesday and have a game on Saturday morning. The first practices and games told the same story: Zoey just kind of stood there and wasn’t really into it. She liked it when she got to be the goalie during a game. I think it was because there was less running involved (girl after my own heart).
