|Go Blue Lightning!|
This is Theo’s first time playing basketball on an organized basis and so far it has been a lot of fun. I think his dad is the most excited about this of all of us, because he is the coach and gets to relive his school days playing on the basketball team. We organized a team of players of mostly school friends, so all the kids are familiar with each other and have a very no-pressure experience.
I know there are lots of different places around the valley that offer Junior Jazz seasons, and we are doing ours at the Jewish Community Center. They have teams available for age Kindergarten through age 14. The JCC provides court space, small “junior” sized balls, jerseys, and tickets to a Utah Jazz game.
Theo’s team has had a few practices and just one game, and so far it is highly entertaining for both spectators and players alike.
