Saturday marks the final matches of our U6 and U8 team schedules.
Last Saturday showed some big improvements in our team versus prior performances. The team is continuing to play calmly and many of the players have progressed in their skills.
Most of all, everyone has acquired a new level of confidence.
One more player scored his first goal of the season. Another player who was on my teams going back to U7 last spring had his best game and came within a post’s width of scoring his first goal.
It’s shaping up to be a good season in retrospect.
We have one training session and 48 minutes of game before my coaching career comes to an end with the U8 team.
I’d really like to sit down Saturday and let the game happen. I want to give the players more freedom than usual Saturday to play the game.
I’m excited and sad for the end of the season and coaching. It’s time to move to the other sideline and enjoy watching my kids play.
