Toddler Basketball

My three-year-old son started his first attempt at organized sports yesterday: basketball. He's in a three- to five-year-old group at the local sports center.

My son is tall for his age, and of above-average intelligence (if you ask me), but he's still three. And he still has some of the hyperactivity of any three-year-old. He wants to do his own thing and doesn't completely understand the concept of a team yet. After forty-five minutes of dribbling and shooting lessons, they played a couple of five minutes games. My son kept asking where his ball went when there was suddenly only one ball on the court.

It's going to take time, of course, for him to get the idea of teamwork and how the game is played. It's going to be great fun, though!
