There’s nothing like seeing kids develop socially, emotionally and athletically through sports. I’ve coached soccer, basketball and lacrosse, but this was my first time coaching volleyball.
This year’s volleyball squad was all 2nd grade girls and our first few practices had me thinking that volleyball was too technical for kids this age.
I was totally wrong. By the end of the season the girls were passing, setting and serving with precision and care. More importantly they had fun, learned to compete, work hard and to win and lose as a team. Each girl made huge individual strides as athletes and as people and seeing this unfold before my eyes is why I coach.
