Spring Soccer Evaluations

It is time for Spring soccer to start at the YMCA.  Last Saturday afternoon the YCMA held soccer evaluations for students 5 years old through 8th grade.  Erica and Ashlin were all ready to go and play some soccer.
 The kids were divided by grade level and then put through a series of drills.  One drill was a passing drill with another person.
 Another drill was dribbling the ball through a series of cones.  The drill was timed.
 There was a running drill to test how fast you run.
 Another drill was running and then kicking the ball through a goal.
Lastly, they held a 3-on-3 scrimmage with the players.  Each drill was timed and graded by a group of soccer coaches.  The results will be used to divide up the teams fairly so that the season may begin in another week.  This Saturday, Justin gets to go for his Itty Bitty soccer evaluation.  He is as excited to start the season as his sisters.

Take care,
