Hoopin' It Up

Cheney is FINALLY old enough to play basketball in the youth league. Our family has a looooong history in this league. Mommy, Uncle Jeff, Laura, & Angela played. Then, Uncle Ernie ran the league while Uncle Jeff was a referree. For the past 10 years or so, Mommy & Daddy have been helping to run the league--sometimes all by themselves!! Now, Daddy is coaching Cheney's team. YAY!!

Cheney played defense really well....almost too well....Daddy had to tell him to back off a little.

This year, they are starting off the season playing only half court--3 on 3. The other half of the team plays on the other side. The high school coaches on the Board of Directors think this will help the kids get more ball handling & control the game a little more. Cheney was throwing the ball in at half court.
His team did pretty well & Cheney made a few baskets!! WAY TO GO!!

Good job Cheney! I can't believe how big you look in these photos! When did you grow up so much???

Way to go, Cheney. Keep practicing your dribbling and passing. You can become an awesome point guard if you work hard.

Yay Cheney! I'm so glad you get to play basketball this year. Ask Mommy and Daddy to get you some basketball shoes.

What fun, Cheney. It looks like you played hard. Not a bad idea to start off with half court for the younger group. Can't wait to be able to see you play.
