This is my second year to be coaching volleyball. Last year I started out coaching the 7th grade middle school team at Madison Academy and this year I got to move up with my same girls and coach them again in 8th grade.
I've had so much fun coaching these sweet girls! I definitely learned a lot last year. It was great to be back around the game other than a pick up game here and there. I did find that coaching is very different from playing! I had a lot to learn in how to balance the team dynamics, pulling out the best in my players, and inspiring them to do well. As well as all the fun administrative things coaches take care of that I took for granted as a player.
Coaching volleyball is such a blessing and I'm so happy I get to do the things I love!
