Kate (#9) stands out against the background of homes and soccer players, wearing a red bow during Saturday’s game.
This is her first spring playing soccer — in the past she’s played only fall soccer and then the 5 on 5 soccer which is in January and February.
This springs team is made of of girls in various age ranges — plus the soccer field is bigger and the goal much bigger too. It’s been a learning experience for Kate — learning position play and much more involved team drills. She’s enjoying it so far and playing very well. She looks so small (but it could be because the uniform is so big for her!) compared to the older kids, but she’s expanding her game.
She has some good players to look up to on her team, including Jocelyn (#5) a very strong defender with quite the foot, and Cassidy (#8, bottom) who has some fantastic ball-handling skills.
