Well I did it!! I managed to get through a whole season as basketball coach!! My job is not quite finished our final game is on Saturday, but tonight was the final training session, and we had a fun filled hour and a half!!
Looking back I have to say that the season did not come without its share of challenges, but the positives have out weighed any negatives by far!!
I know that I will look back on my time as coach fondly and will treasure the memories that I have shared with my son and his friends.
There is a certain amount of pride and sense of self accomplishment that I can’t help feeling, that I’m sure will stay with me for a long while.
First Aussie Rules football game for the year and our team had a great win!! When it comes to spectator sports AFL is the best! It’s fast paced, filled with action and intensity!!
Great win tonight Roos!!
I attended a skills drills and special plays workshop today with Trevor Gleeson who is the coach of the Perth Wildcats and I have to say that it was really great.
He has so much passion and knowledge, the session was fun and informative and very entertaining.
My only wish was that my son had attended the workshop with me he would have found it to be so beneficial and he would have loved it.
Some of the drills and plays would be a bit advance for the majority of the boys on my team but not for all of them and certainly not for George.
Tomorrow at training I will try and introduce some of the things that I picked up tonight, hopefully it will help us going forward in the season.
Grading games are now over and the season is set to commence. What our boys have above the rest of the competition is that they are all great mates, and when they play they play for each other. So they may not be the best team in their division or the most skilful, they certainly don’t have the best coach, but they have a bond which gives them an edge above the competition and sometimes that’s all it takes.
Go Bulls !!!
