Better Basketball Shots

My parents came one weekend in March and were able to see the boys in action. My Dad got some better shots than I had been able to get at their games.  Here are some of the basketball action...

Thanks, Dad, for the great shots!

"Net Force" Volleyball

Meet Team "Net Force",  Hollace's 2014-15  Club Velocity Volleyball Team.

 Proud of their 1st place finish in the Gold bracket in the Ozark Tournament-

More shots at a tournament in Greenwood-

 About midway through the season, Hollace really improved her serve. 
In one match at this tournament she got about 11 or 12 consecutive points from her serve!

 She had a lot of fun this season and we are proud of her hard work!

Upward Basketball Starring Rhett!

 We decided to play Upward in Greenwood this year and the boys have really enjoyed it! Rhett has improved a lot since last time and is doing a really good job!

 He is REALLY aggressive on defense!

 These are not the best pictures. I'm sure I should have had settings a little different on my camera or something. I like this pic though, look at his face.
 He really hustles too!- quite the little scrapper!!
 He has scored in every game. I think his best game was around 14 points.

 His team is undefeated so far. I think they have 3 more games, so I will try to get some better pictures before the season is over. 
 Proud of our #11!!!
*Their last game is tonight! So far they haven't lost a game so we're hoping for an undefeated season!

Thad's First Basketball Season

This is Thad's first year to play basketball and he is loving it! 
He loves pretty much anything involving a ball.
They do the coolest thing at Upward at FBC in Greenwood. Before all the games they turn of the lights and have all the cheerleaders and players run through this tunnel and introduce them over the the loud speakers. There is smoke and spotlights and everything! You can't really tell from the picture, but it's really cool and the kids LOVE it! 
Thad runs out each week, holding up his finger like this.....SO cute!!

 There weren't enough coaches when the season started so Brent sort of got suckered into it, but he's done a great job!

 In Upward, all the kids get equal playing time. It helps everyone get a chance to play and improve.

He's doing a really good job, is a great hustler too.
 Thad hasn't scored yet, but he's only actually shot a few times. He's usually the "point guard", if a kindergarten team has a point guard.  He does a great job getting the plays started and has several "assists";)

In Upward they play man to man only. They are paired up and stay on that kid the whole time. This time he was matched up with another little boy from his class at school. They were having a sort of imaginary sword fight at one point. Then on the picture on the right, they just stood and had a stare down at each other for quite a while. They are pretty entertaining at this age! 

 Coach Brent having a huddle.
 This is so funny!
A few of the boys on Thad's team just got on the ground and started doing push-ups one day just before the game started. I don't know where they got the idea, but everyone got a kick out of it. Usually one or a few of them will still do it before the games.  
Here is Thad getting pumped up before the last game. 
Thad's cute little team
*They play their last game tonight, a make up game. Then this season will be in the books. My parents got to come see him play this past weekend so I should have some better pictures soon that my Dad took.
