Get ready for the travel soccer season

I asked Abe playing in quite a few chess tournaments this summer. The reason is a long story: He always excuses not to work hard (for example, doing puzzles) because he does not like it (or like it enough). One day he said he liked soccer. “Well, let him playing soccer, see if he would like to put efforts into it.” With this idea, I let him go to tryouts for one travel team, he passed the tryout and will start the soccer season this fall. I heard that he would have three practices and one game each week. so his chess playing chances after the summer is very limited. He said he would play online to compensate this. I am doubtful. Even he plays, I do not want him playing mainly blitz, in which many people indulge. I want him, if possible, playing slow games. So he went to quite a few tournaments in summer.

In the soccer tryouts in late spring, I did not notice Abe looking bad at all comparing to other kids. He  has played for recreational soccer (AYSO) for many seasons. He has a good feel of the game and has a good soccer instinct. However, since Abe didn’t plays travel soccer before. He should be weak in some tactics. I registered him for several soccer camps this summer for him to see and fix his weaknesses and to grow up his confidence.

The following two showed his finishing after receiving a crossing from a teammate in one scrimmage.
