The girls played their first Little Dribblers game last Saturday. For a group of 9 little girls having never played before, I thought they did awesome. Ava is playing up in the 8 and under league with Carli b/c I had no desire to go to four practices a week plus 4 games every Saturday! Thankfully, Ava is my carefree kid, and just goes with the flow! She is obviously the smallest, but she plays a mean game of defense and we are working hard on our dribbling at home. It's pretty tough for her to shot the ball...being short and all. :)
Our first game was at 8 am on Saturday morning against Arp. We anticipated complete chaos but actually it was a nice controlled chaos! :) The girls did great and we lost in overtime by one point.
Our second game was at noon, so we got to come home and rest a bit. We played Overton and we won! :) Ava pretty much played defense no matter who had the ball, BUT she smiled the whole time and had fun! Carli struggles b/c she does not like chaos and she wants to know and understand the rules. It frustrates her to not understand everything all at once. She did steal the ball twice and played a mean game of defense! :)
