5th Grade Basketball

Another basketball season has come and gone for Caiden and Chelan (the coach).  It's been a new team each year, and Caiden had high hopes of winning 3 games this year.  Why three?  The first year they won 1 game, The second year they won 2 games, so naturally, they should have won 3 games this year!  Alas, it wasn't meant to be.  They ended the year 0-7.

There was lots of good learning happening, however - including how to play with teammates who have never played before, learning how to shoot better on a 10' goal, slowing down when you have a lay-up opportunity, figuring how to navigate a full-court press, etc.  While they didn't win any games this year, there was major improvement from the first game to the last.  And that was great to see!
warming up - of course, shooting 3's - even though that
is frowned upon by his mother.
