Eli Playing Soccer

Eli has been on a soccer team since September of last year. Not only has it been cool to see his growth and development in the game of soccer, but it has been interesting to learn the German soccer system. These people are crazy and intense about their soccer. Practices are 1.5 hours long and they have practice 2 times a week. Then they have games a few times a month. That is a lot for 5 year olds!

At the start of the games, actually they are usually mini tournaments with a few teams from the area, they have a chant. In the video below, Eli’s team is the yellow one.

Practicing at the park during the fall, hence the short-sleeves and green grass

Indoor game during the winter – Eli is yellow #6
