This year we decided to delve into the world of Bantam basketball. It is the competitive league here in Utah. Jackson's team was all 3rd graders playing up a year since Bantam technically starts in 4th grade. Jackson continues to say basketball is his favorite sport, and really wanted to play, so we went with it. I had no idea what to expect, other than people told us to expect a lot of growth this first year, and to get creamed every game. :)
I was so impressed with these boys! They started off the season a bit scared and nervous, and they did lose many games against the 4th grade teams by a long shot, but their progression over the season was amazing! These boys held their own and won their games against most of the other 3rd grade teams playing up. It was so much fun to see their confidence and abilities grow.
Sean coached with his friend Garner, which was a lot of fun for Jackson. Garner's son, Garner Jr. or "G" as we call him, and Jackson have become great friends. I'm excited to see where the future takes these boys!
