Noah has a ton of energy and we needed to find a good way to channel that instead of having him running like a nutcase around the house. What better way to tire him out than to send him running around a field chasing a ball with 9 or so other kids.
Soccer at this age is laughingly called “herd ball” because they don’t really play games against others, they all run together (in a herd..) working on people avoidance skills (cleverly disguised as a game of tag). Using common games like tag, red/light green light, and follow the leader, the trainer worked on the fundamental skills of traveling with the ball, kicking into the goal, and player avoidance among others.
Noah and the other kids had a blast and I’m so proud of him because he listened and followed directions so well. Way better than he listens to us:)
