Ode to the coaches

I have talked about Victory Sports before and this year's basketball is as great as ever! One of the best parts is the coaches I get to coach with. They are awesome!

Coach Hal- One word to describe Hal is intense. Before the season started, he and I said we wanted to coach together and everyone laughed because they thought we would spend most of our time arguing (like brother and sister), but they were wrong. Not to toot our horn, but we make a great team. He has the drills and basketball coaching knowledge and I can speak "kid". We have only argued once or twice, I think. :)

Coach Chris- I joke and call Chris "Safety Patrol" because he is the best at making sure everyone is safe. I know it is safe to heckle a call when he is referee, because he is one of the best guys I know. It doesn't hurt that his wife is one of my good friends and his daughter is Ella's BFF, Julianne. :)

Coach Mike- Mike is cool. He has to be, he has 4 daughters and 3 of them play for us. He told the girls at practice that we (the female coaches) were like the Moms at basketball and if the girls didn't listen to Mom, they would have to deal with Dad. See, I told you he was cool.

Coach Cathy- Cathy is awesome! Even though we are different (I am tall, she is not; I haven't had a normal voice since the 1st game, she sings like a bird), we love helping teach the game of basketball and investing in the lives of these girls.

Coach Derrick and Coach Kelly- Derrick is one of the nicest guys I have met and Kelly always makes me laugh.

God is so good to put so many wonderful people in my life! If I forget to say it at the end of the season- Thanks! You all are amazing!

I can't wait for my boys to be old enough to play sports!
Except for the going out in the crazy cold weather part!
