Spring soccer started this week. Last year he did both fall soccer and summer soccer and this is the first time we are doing spring soccer in Owatonna. I had not ever sign the kids up for before because the days and times for practices and games were somewhat random, actually quite random. But as it turns out so far Henry's favorite sport to play has been soccer whereas sister knew she was going to be a swimmer.
He is a very aggressive soccer player but I think that will come when he starts to gain more confidence in his abilities. He is quite fast and that will serve him well.
This past Tuesday was their first practice and they have 1 practice a week in the evening during weekdays and then they have a game on Saturday. Even though this is through Owatonna park and rec they have enough kids for a Medford only team and a parent stepped up to be a coach for Medford kids so they could all be on the same team together. This age group is for first and second graders. They will play through May 20th and that Saturday will be their last game. Then he will have a week and a half off of soccer until summer soccer starts in Faribault.
