Today was the last day of Bitty Basketball. Connor's really enjoyed it and his team's gotten lots better. It was a joy to watch them play their last two games. The first game of the season, they didn't do a very good job defending and the other team would typically get a free opportunity to walk right up to the basket and shoot. During the second game of the season, their coach realized they needed to work on defense and after that they did an awesome job of paying attention to who had the ball and would prevent them from getting close to the net.
Prior to the game today, the coach had them practice defending. He'd walk around to different places and encourage the boys to get between him and the net.
On offense, Connor was aggressive and was one of the few players who would dribble. In the first game of the season, he scored one basket. In the second game, he made three baskets and in the third game he made three as well.
I got some video from the last game and put it together. Connor loves watching himself play.
After the game, the coach handed out medals to everyone.
Connor was awesome! There is another session for basketball in January, and if we're still in KC, we're planning to do it again!
