A Season: JV Soccer Boys

So JV soccer for the boys started. Robin and Job both made the JV team which I was so thankful for. It meant that they would practice together and have games at the same time. I didn't need to add another soccer schedule to our calendar. Robin played mostly a forward position while Job played center midfield. The season started rough with a team mate being severely injured. That game ended after the injury. Their record was 7-6-3, which isn't a bad record. Rain or shine, they were practicing and playing which really surprised Robin. I guess in Korea they don't practice or play in the rain. We would never play if that was the case here. There were familiar faces on the field and sidelines alike along with new faces. There weren't many games that John and I didn't watch and it was a social hour for both of us. The boy's coach also coached Lona in the fall.  We really like Justin. He plays soccer for the Bellingham United Team as well.  I personally think that having a coach that has played or does play soccer is important. They understand what it's like to be on the field and the difficulties a player faces in different situations. Justin also has a way with the boys. Job really looks up to Justin as a coach and we respect him. He is humble and is respectful to the referees. If the boys win but didn't play the way Justin wanted, he has them run lines at the end of the game.  I like that. I almost miss the high school soccer season.
