Whats up everyone!! These past two weeks have been pretty hectic with almost every aspect of my journey starting to begin and it’s great!! This past weekend started games for both the Ulster Elks National League team and the Junior Elks 14 and under girls’ team (which I will be coaching) and they both got off to great starts. The Junior Elks 14 and under girls team won every game they played in at last weekend’s tournament in Belfast. Unfortunately, the girls’ tournament was the same day as the National League game so I couldn’t attend, but I heard from Mrs. D that they played excellent and the drills we did in practice were transferring into games. As a coach that is the best feeling EVER, and I can’t wait for practice tonight so we as a team can keep getting better. As for the National League team, we also won against a team from Dublin on the road. Jim and I couldn’t play, but we were cheering so hard to get the victory, I actually lost my voi
As for school, this was our second week of classes and it has definitely picked up. We are starting to do research on all the companies and organizations we will have to cover in the 6 papers that are due at the end of the semester. One of the organizations we will be covering is Sport Changes Life, so we will get tell our classmates and teacher about our duties and mission while here in Northern Ireland.
Lastly, another E-Hoops program started up this Wednesday!! It was so much fun not only for the young adults and kids, but for me personally. We were able to get to know some of the kids through ice breakers that Mr. Gareth put together. We also play a little soccer or football again, and once again the kids were running circles around me like I wasn’t even out there playing. Overall, this week has been busy, but extremely rewarding and fun. I can’t wait to see what else is in store for my experience!! Thanks for listening!!
