Callahan's Triple Play

Callahan plays basketball year round, but Winter is basketball season, with more opportunities to play. The original plan was to play on two teams ... his SuperleagueUtes and Klint'sJuniorJazz as we'd done for the past couple years. Then the Superleague fell through :( so it looked like it was just going to be one game a week. As the Fall season (playing in the 7th/8th league) had been pretty easy, we decided to play up in the 8th grade league for a little more challenge.

Then Callahan heard about tryouts for a competitive high school prep league at the local high school. He went and tried out and made the top team. Back to two games and multiple practices a week. *Ü*

When the Junior Jazz schedules came out, we were sad to see some conflicts between the two teams (12:00 and 2:00 being the popular times). Callahan wished he had just played 7th grade Junior Jazz ... those games were all in the mornings, and he had many friends on various teams he would have liked to play against. When the kids he played with during the Thanksgiving AAU tournament told us there was an open spot on their 7th grade team, Callahan jumped in there.

So, multiple practices, 2-3 games a week ... lots of basketball ... Callahan couldn't be happier!
