Today was the last game for the Stingray's basketball team. Jay has had three great years at the 'YMCA playing mini basketball. For half the session each week they learn how to play and practice their skills, and then for the last half they play a 'game'. The rules are very modified and they are allowed to get away with a bit depending on each child's abilities and skills. Jay has been one of the oldest ones in the league this year and his confidence has really grown.
The last couple of games he has scored between 5-6 goals and has been very proud of himself.
This year Jay had some lovely kids on his team.
It's been great for him learning how to play in a fun environment. Tonight all the kids got certificates and ribbons for participating.
Next year Jay goes up to Junior basketball which will be a lot more challenging, but he is looking forward to playing real games with real rules :)
