#4 - Co-Ed teams at that age level?

Watch your backgrounds. The parking lot in #2 made me immediately skip it; same to #6. #3 is fine, #5 is composed awkwardly; crop the mess from the top to the ball. As a matter of fact, all of these need to be cropped tighter. "Shoot tight, crop tighter." is a common expression in sports photography. Pass on #4 as you don't have a clean view of their faces. On the positive side, they're all sharp with good exposure and the action is stopped well.

Best,

Eric

Good color and sharp. As Eric said... backgrounds. 7 and 8 are my faves. You have come a long way.

I'll have to remember to crop tighter. I have been leaving a little space for when I upload to Zenfolio. I'll try to remember the backgrounds and image crops. Thanks for the advice.

I remember my first shots. They were horrible. I'll try to be mindful of the backgrounds.

It can happen.
In HS our JV team was actually coed, so 14-18 age bracket (since our school didn't have enough girls to form their own full team). It's no longer the case currently though.

And for informal leagues it's not at all that unheard of even for 18+, even today.
