In Amara's league, there are 3rd-4th graders and they play with limited rules: no full court press, no stealing, pretty much you could guard, dribble, and shoot. You should've seen Amara at one of her last games. She was passed the ball and she dribbled all the way down the court, protecting the ball with her arm and her body, then she got right under the basket, and took a shot. It was phenomenal! Coach Matt Yergensen was smiling big and had lots of encouragement for her. He was new to coaching, and he took it seriously, and did a great job. Each member on his team learned something and improved their skills in some way or another.
