Upward Basketball

It's hard to believe we are already 1/2 way through Seth's first experience with Upward Basketball. It's been great so far...he really enjoys it! He is playing on the kindergarten team, and even though he's the youngest, he's doing a pretty good job of keeping up with them. He's definitely figured out the "hands-up" defense strategy. They do a really good each kid a wristband...and then they "guard" the kid on the other team w/ the same color wristband. The baskets are a little lower so they are able to have some success w/ shooting the baskets. His skills have improved dramatically...considering at the evaluation, he could barely dribble and now he can all the way down the court. I'm so glad he's got such an interest in organized activities...and seems to really enjoy them. Can't wait to see how the next 4 games go! GO LEOPARDS!
