Basketball coaching continues to be rewarding. The kids are doing much better at passing the ball. Some still have trouble guarding without going all helicopter on the opponent, and there is the problem of agressiveness causing more agressiveness till finally one or the other is called for fouling. Invariably, he doesn't understand it because the other kid was going it too. The no-touch policy works for a while, but soon, it's back to guarding by gymnastics.
Jordan's on the medium height segment of the team, though one of the younger. Next year, he'll be on the far end of the age range. He'll also be a bit more mature. He's already high up on the maturity scale, able to give up the bad percentage shot in favor of a pass inside. That's a hard lesson for this age to learn.
Tonight, he's playing computer games. I'm amazed by the online games and how they've grown over the past couple of years. They look like expensive games now. And Jordan plays them way better since he's learned to read.
Knowing that he has a good time reading is another high point for a writer daddy. His writing skills haven't quite caught up yet, but just to watch him sit and read a story book, that is about as good as it gets these days.
