I coach because after 3 seasons it’s rewarding to see how the kids grow. The kids play volleyball at a young age because they enjoy the company of the other kids, not so much that they love volleyball. The hope is that if they keep at it they will develop a love for the game and the payoff is when adults can play in a full game with their kids. Also I’ve found it’s a great break from your busy work life. Most parents are hesitant to commit (I was the same way). Now you look forward to something that takes your mind off of the endless list of things to do for work and home and just spend time with your kids and their friends. Also when your kids are all grown up, they will remember that your dad or mom was the coach when they were younger. So those are the reasons I coach.
