This Week’s Topic: Toddler Sports
This topic is perfect timing for us because Baybah just started toddler soccer a couple of weeks ago. We decided to have soccer be his first sport because of the nature of soccer. Baybah has lots of energy, so we figured he would love running around the soccer field and hopefully trying to get the ball into the goal. We definitely would love to put him in T-ball as well but have decided to wait on that for a year or so. In Tball there is a lot of waiting your turn, and we are worried Baybah is not ready for that. He loves to be in the middle of the action. Hubs has big dreams of Baybah being a baseball players someday, so I know T-ball will come soon enough.
My brother who played soccer from when he was Baybah’s age until college was so excited when he found out Baybah was going to play. He got him the cutest soccer gear to wear to practice. He also gave us a tip that we would not have known if he did not tell us. He said to make sure to buy shin guards that also have ankle guards. My brother said it is especially important at this age to make sure that their ankles are protected. Here is an example of what they look like.
Baybah has soccer practice twice a week for 30 minutes, and a game every Saturday for the Spring season. I thought 30 minutes would not be enough time, but let me tell you, after those practices hubs and I are exhausted. Baybah likes to kick the ball with his team, then run to the playground (hubs and I get him and bring him back), kick the ball with his team, then run over to the T-ball practice (hubs and I get him and bring him back), etc. It is really cute to watch him play, but you can see why hubs and I are exhausted. We are hoping that with time and practice Baybah gets better. After all, he has only had 4 practices. His first game is on Saturday and I am so excited to see the team in their uniforms and watch them all in action!! I am sure it is going to be adorable!!
Have you put your Toddler in Sports yet? If so which ones? Do you have any tips if you did?
