First Time Coach

This past week I started my first coaching position at my school. I’m coaching freshmen boys volleyball and I have to say I’m already having a blast. It’s a job that pairs well with teaching and yet it’s an opportunity to see students from a completely different side. In one week I already gained the sense of pride a coach has watching his athletes improve, gain new skills, and demonstrate the drive to win. Many of the skills I have from my experience in the classroom have already served me well in coaching. Just as with teaching, coaching is an opportunity for me to learn more about the sport and how to lead a team to victory. It’s a fun challenge and even though the season just started I know it’s going to be an exciting one!
