Is Nyan becoming better at soccer (football), now that he’s been at it for five months or so? We’d say so, marginally. What’s really important, though, is that he’s still enjoying it.
One important change: we found a stash of soccer/football jerseys in the closet – shirts we’d been waiting for him to grow into. He’s just about grown into them, so we’ve been busting htem out for practice. Looking good!
Let’s take a look at some live action. Here he is practicing his shots on goal. Practice makes perfect, eventually.

Speaking of defense, check out the boy’s defense in this drill!
Practicing ball control and footwork:
Scoring a goal (eventually) in practice:

Here’s some sort of game drill, in which Nyan decided he’d just stand in front of the goal, apparently:
Last but not least, it’s fun to wind down after practice by doing a little climbing on the nearby playground equipment.
