Walt Plays Soccer

Pretty much since birth, Walt has been attracted to any kind of ball. Basically from the time he could walk, he started kicking balls. I couldn’t wait for him to finally be old enough to actually get some coaching.  We recently enrolled Walt in a little soccer skills programs. They don’t play other teams, but learn little drills and mostly how to listen and pay attention.

Ready to go! Puma shirt and all!

Walt’s coach (Coach Mike) is a cool soccer guy with a mohawk, so naturally Walt wants to wear his hair like this now. In all seriousness, Coach Mike has some serious patience with all these three year olds. As hard as it is to imagine, they all don’t listen all of the time 🙂

Walt’s heaven. A big, giant goal and tons of soccer balls
Follow the leader…

Waiting patiently on their dots 🙂

I know this is just the beginning of many, many years of sports, and I can’t wait! It’ll be fun to look back on these days when it was a big deal if Walt could pay attention long enough to kick the ball from one end of the field to the other. I’m still holding out for one of the boys to show a desire to be a hip hop dancer 🙂

    Haha. We can trade off… you can take my daughter to hip hop, and I'll cheer on the boy s 😉 LOL. I LOVE this idea. I've watched some 4 year old soccer games, and it's not good. The drills program is a really great idea to work on the coordination but not have to suffer through games. What is this through…thinking about passing it on to my SIL.

    There were two programs we looked at: Soccer Tots and Soccer Shots. Both national programs. Extremely similar. We love it and it's competitively priced with any other activity (MyGym, swim lessons, etc). I'm holding you to the kiddo trade off…
