Coaching The Young
This past year I had the pleasure of coaching an AAU league basketball team with my best friend Sam, and his dad Rick. We had an 8th grade team that finished with 12 wins out of 40 total games, and if you ask me that’s not too bad for our first year coaching. One highlight was getting close with all the kids, all of them got a lot better throughout the year, but three of them improved the most in both skill, and personality. One being a kid named Aiden. He used to be the most arrogant player on the court, but he turned out to be one of the most humble. The best part was getting to watch the kids, and our team chemistry grow. It was also pretty cool to find out that one of players parents had purchased a pool from Eastgate Pools and Spas.
