Sporty signed up for a fall skills clinic. It ended like 2 weeks ago but I’m super behind on life. I was super mom-fail and didn’t get pictures until her last session. To my defense, I forgot my phone during one of them. Seriously, 3 hours phone free…it was both liberating and terrifying at the same time.
It was a really good clinic, the first hour and a half was skills training, fielding and batting, base running, followed by an hour and a half of scrimmage. A couple of Sporty’s summer teammates also participated and she made some new softball friends and reconnected with a former teammate from kindergarten. They split the 3rd and 4th graders into two teams and they scrimmaged each other and the coaches coached them on the plays they made as they were in the scenarios, it was a great way for them to learn how to play strategically. I love watching these girls in the dugout. They go from not knowing one another, to cheering for each other and being friends in a matter of weeks. Softball truly unites them. (And in case you are wondering, yes, she will be wearing that jersey next time we hit up Disneyland)
