Austin's first basketball game

Well our future little NBAer had his first basketball game this morning. He did so good and the team was too cute out there. When we arrived Austin received his little jersey-he is number 4. Grandma and Grandpa were very happy with the jersey colors (they were Vandy colors).

Here Austin is waiting on his turn to get out there and play.
He is trying to dribble the ball
Nothing but net....
Coach is helping them stretch and warm up for the big game

It took a lot of work for the whole team to get there hands up and try to keep the other team from scoring.
Austin and this little guy were protecting the goal from the other team scoring. Lol. This is what happens with a group of 3 year old boys.
The game was quite humorous and cute. They had only had one practice and had not really practiced game type moves such as keeping the other team from scoring or moving the ball down the court. Needless to say the first part of the game was just trying to get the kids all going in the right direction-but towards the end of the game they were starting to get it. It should be interesting to see how well they all grow and learn the game over the next weeks and months.
