Carson has now been playing outdoor for 5 years. He has always been really good at soccer, however something really clicked for him this season. He took his play to an entire new level this Spring! He went from having 2-3 goals the whole season to having 2-3 goals per game! Carson has always, even at 4 and 5 years old, had an uncanny understanding of where he should be placed on the field. He's always been really good at getting to the right spot on the field, however he was always a bit timid and frankly, scared of the ball. This left him with a lot of great opportunities to score or have an assist that were missed because he got beat to the ball and backed down to a bigger kid.
This season was different! It was like an "aggressive" light bulb went off and he knew he could win the ball every time. He has now decided that he wants to try out for a club team. I really believe he is good enough. However, I'm not gonna lie.... I'm a little concerned about the financial commitment. Club teams are so expensive and the last thing I want to do is deny him of an opportunity to do what he loves and take his skill-set to the next level. This is going to be a tough one.
Here's some fun pics/videos of the season;
