Last Saturday, after his second soccer practice session, Ethan proudly showed me the Sportsmanship Medal he had earned.
The teams play either a 4 vs 4 or 5 vs 5 game at the end of each practice session, and at the end of each game, a “Sportsmanship Medal” will be awarded to a participating team member. Sense of teamwork, playing to the best of his/her abilities and hustling to make a play will be some of the considerations when awarding the medal.
So proud of Ethan, and he is improving every week too. Pssst…his Daddy takes him to a nearby park on a couple of evenings during the week days for “extended” training too, now that it’s warmer outdoors.
