we ARE the Champions!

I am a day behind on the big winnings! We are the Recreational 3rd grade champions at Fieldhouse for Basketball! Woo Woo!

It was super exciting! So the long and the short of it, we played on a rec team, and won every game by 25+ points. Then a Fieldhouse representative came to us, when we had only 2 games left, that we were "too good" that they were getting complaints from "other" teams, and that we would finish out our last 2 games, but that our tournament would be against the "better" teams....

Saturday was our first Playoff game, it was nail biting, out of your seat exciting (which I forgot my camera for) and we won 19 to 18...The boys played awesome!

Sunday we played again, another team, that was ranked 2nd in their age group...We won!!! I think by 2 points. It was again very exciting and far surpassed us as parents and their coaches... So we went in to the last game Monday night, going up against the BEST team, in their league, and I am so proud to say..We stomped them! Our boys played so good, we are so proud, and it was one of the best sports events we have ever had! let alone coaching experience! We have the BEST Coaches, Frank and Chad S...Love them! They are the right amount of push and the right amount of praise, which is what kids need!!

I took some pics here they are!

This was a really big deal to Scotty, and us! This is a kid who had NEVER played basket ball, really ever dribbled a ball or shot a basket, and when it was all said and done, He did it! He was a kid with zero skills, and came out not only with skills, but a great lesson from his coaches, to be cheered on and encouraged by both his friends and other parents! this really was one of the very best "team sports" we have ever been a part of! All of these boys are good kids, and we could not have walked away with a better experience or great friends from this team!

Today when I picked up Scotty, the first thing he said when he got in the car, was "I am sad that basketball is over, I don't want it to be over"

Thank You!
