Michael is playing in a basketball league in our neighborhood this season. There are a lot of boys and girls that play. They start with 2nd graders having an "instructional" league and they go up through middle- and high-school ages and even host travel teams. Its nice because all of the practices and games are at one of the local elementary schools.

Michael's division is 3rd and 4th graders. Our team has a LOT of 3rd graders. You can really tell the difference in the size of some of the kids.

Michael is a strong defensive player. He's agressive and doesn't hesitate to get his hands into the face of another player or on the ball another player has.

And Mike helps out as assistant coach of the team this season!

How fun! My son is just starting basketball (he's in 2nd grade), and I don't care how good or bad he is -- I just want him to be aggressive.

Is Michael a lefty? Or is he just good at dribbling with both hands?

I hope he enjoys it and has a great season.
