Volleyball season has officially begun. For those of you who may not know, I've taken on the challenge of coaching the middle school girls at ACA. Let me tell you the surprise I received the first day of practice when we sat down to 'see where we all were.'
I have 12 girls on the team, 8 of which have never touched a volleyball. (You see, I'm coming from a school where the girls start playing volleyball in the 4th grade.) After I failed to hide the shock on my face, I started to see how eager the girls were to learn. At least there is a silver lining on this cloud. Each day I get more excited because I can see the girls are actually getting better after only a few short practices. By the end of it all, this may be more satisfying that having a 21-0 record. I'll have to get back to you on that one!
