Yesterday I became a soccer mom! My little J myster played his first game of soccer! It was fun seeing him interact with his teammates and get to know his coach and to watch him play soccer with other kids. J just turned four in March, so he’s a younger four than a lot of his teammates, so I’m not sure he understood quite yet what the game was about even though we got him a soccer ball about a month ago and we were practicing kicking it in the back yard.
It’s definitely a milestone I’m excited he’s reached. Being able to play with other kids his age, getting exercise, learning how to follow directions from a coach, all things vital to a growing boy who will start school next year.
As the kids were kicking the ball on the field and I saw J’s attention drift off to what we were eating and wanting a snack and walking off the field right in the middle of a game, I worried about his attention span and his focus. From talking to other parents sitting on the sidelines, I did learn it’s quite normal and it takes about a month for first-time players (especially younger four-year-olds) to get into game mode.
It’s so funny though about his eating habits, I woke up Sunday morning and made the kid eggs and toast, orange juice and a banana and he had a good-sized lunch with a sandwich and another orange because I wanted him to have the energy he needed to have on the field. But still, when we got to the field, his focus was on the sidelines…on snacking. I was thinking geez, he’s not even a teenage boy yet!
Anyway Micro Soccer is all about fun, teaching kids the basics of the game, learning how to cheer their teammates on and being good winners and losers.
