Yes he plays soccer now on Saturday mornings.
Practice(no drills, but we play for fun once in a while in the backyard. He enjoys it.) More fun at home when he is playing with "daddy".
This is the 2nd year he is playing. He did not like playing last year either.
He is a great kid, but extremely competitive.
Sounds strange, but he really does not have any special hobbies or wants. Even going back a few years he never really liked to play with toys. I would say that he enjoys the computer.
He has not been in other organized activities. With 2 older siblings he does what they do for thew most part. For a few years my wife and I recognize him as having great athletic potential. He was 3 1/2 when he began swimming on his own. He was riding a bike without training wheels when he was still 3.
What triggered this request and this dialog? Last Saturday he was crying ...again...on the Soccer field. The game started and he just stood around and ran to me and said "I don't know what to do". I told him to "score a goal". He then ran out on the field through the moving mass of 5 year olds and stole the ball away and took off. No one caught up to him split,2 defenders and scored a goal. He was amazing. However, he immediately ran all the way back to me in tears saying "I scored a goal, but it's still not fun."
I give him so much encouragement, but he doesn't want to be there. What is the gameplan, coach?
