Team Chelsea

The fall soccer season is now officially over.

Ryan once again had a great year playing on Chelsea.

Ryan is now in U7, the first year where they split the teams into all boys and all girls.

His friends Andres and Derek returned to the team, and we added several new friends from Spicewood.
 This was the first year they have official refs, and the coaches have to stay on the sidelines.

The kids and coaches all sit on one side of the field, and the parents are all on the other side.

They also play 4x4, moving up from 3x3, so we now have eight boys on the team.

And a bigger field.

Ryan really improved his dribbling, and maintained his fast speed. His one weakness is that he waits until he is right in front of the goal to shoot.

As we've learned from Alex's team now playing with goalies, this is a bad habit he needs to work on breaking over the next two years, or else he will never score once they have a goalie.

Not to mention that when you are as tall as Ryan is, and you wait to score until the last minute, and you are running full speed at the goal, well...

Its not a pretty sight.

This was a bad hit, and caused me to lose at least six months off my life.

But Ryan did learn the advantages of shooting from further back after this hit, at least.

Ryan loves playing soccer.

 And I love watching him love playing soccer.

Just look at how happy he is, to be doing what he loves to do best.
