The boys tried out and made the 5th grade boys travel basketball team this week. It was a quick decision to do the try out after our Recreational League coach decided not to coach this year and we were scratching our heads about what to do next. Sam really wanted to play travel ball and Dylan seemed a little scared of trying out in fear missing the cut and his brother making it. After some hard core convincing, we got Dylan to go to the tryouts where he did a great job passing the ball and playing mad defense, that's what he does, he's a stealer.
We held our breath for a day and a half but got the news that they both made the team last night. This is great news for their basketball progression because they will be playing with 8 other kids that really know the game and will be playing tough teams from all over northern virginia. We will miss our friends from the rec league but this is a great opportunity for the boys to get a lot better and extend all that they learned in the 3 weeks of basketball camp last summer.
The boys are competitive little monkeys and I love to watch them compete. This is the next step for Nicole and I too. It means more practices, games and longer drives to away contests. They both want to tryout for travel soccer in the spring which means something has to give. Football or baseball may be on the cutting block.
