Rugbytots (Class Number 2!) Today was our second class of the rugby season. We even arrived early today despite the ice all over the car. Jensen Indiana recognised what was going on and got excited watching the class before us chase “the man” (Ashley, the coach) around the hall. Anyway, soon it was our time but of course our little guy couldn’t resist (more than) a few lengths of the gym to warm up. So, Dadda got to run too.
The class started off the same again with a game of “Hot Potato” touching knees and toes. Jensen must be fond of this because every time the coach got to 10, he was cheering for him. So cute.
|Going To Ground!|
We did some ball skills involving holding the ball like your teddy bear and not letting go. No problem for our little one. It was like a giant stress ball!
Then came the throwing. Jensen loves the throwing and he’s pretty good at catching too for his age! Below I like to think he’s throwing into the line-out.
|Here it Comes, Right Down the Centre!|
I mean, look at his finger positioning in the above photos. He’s a born natural.
|It’s All About The Handling…|
Next he did some scrum practice. Mamma played Tight Head Prop for most of her time on the field. Mamma hopes Jensen does not.
|Ready To Hit!|
Finally, after an assault course, we did some kicking from the tee. Jensen impressed us by managing to kick over 20 today! He kicks far better than his Mamma ever did.
Soon enough it was time to score our final try and head home. Another class under our belt and another sticker! This time Jensen Indiana managed to stay seated in his little group….to the point of being the last one to leave, high-fiving the coaches and then running for freedom.
We’re so very proud of you, Jensen Indiana.
When we got home of course it was time for some post-match drinks. Mamma was glad to see that he chose a manly drink, one that Dadda would approve of (Jensen was not drinking this, just to point out, just pretending), and one that gives Mamma hope that Jensen Indiana will turn out to be an amazing little player, and always have a seat at the bar after the match.
