This year was Sydney's first year to play basketball, she has watched Austin the last couple of years and said she wanted to play when she was old enough. So this year, she was about to play in the kindergarten/ 1st grade level. The first game, the ball bounced and then popped her in the nose, she had a big cry and was quite timid of the ball after that. We talked her into going back, and even though she was a bit shy when the ball would bounce and come her way, she kept with it, and had lots of fun. She loved being a defender and was great at it, esp with her tall height, she had a great season.
