David and His Basketball Team
For my new readers, David is Leslie's husband. He owns the local gym. He enjoys working with young kids in his spare time.
Here he is with a small group of 8 and 9 yr old, who wish to learn the game of basketball.
"Okay guys, last week we spent time going over the rules of the game and we worked on our dribbling."
"Today you will practice your dribbling. Then we will learn a little about shooting and passing the ball. When we get to passing, you will be working in pairs. I will work with one of you, since we only have five people." (David)
"Do you want to work with me?" (Tyler)
"No. I'm working with Shannon." (Nikaya)
"Everyone grab a ball and hold on to it."
"Nikaya and Shannon, why are you sitting down?" (David)
"We just thought we would rest a little, Mr. David." (Nikaya)
"But you haven't done anything, yet. Let's go! Up on your feet. Everyone spread out." (David)
"When I blow the whistle, you can pick up your ball and start your dribbling. No two handed dribbling, please. And you need to practice with both hands. When it's time to stop, I will blow the whistle again. So make sure you are paying attention."
"On your mark, get set...." (David)
David blows the whistle and the dribbling begins!
