I am confident now that the kids we work with here in Galway are starting to really believe we are here to help make them better in every way we can. Slowly building trust, to me, is the most important thing we can do to get through to these kids as mentors. It is a beautiful thing to know you have players looking up to you, and I feel blessed to be in this position to give back to them any way I can. Coaching multiple teams/clinics makes it a little tougher to build the strong relationships I would like to have with these individuals, but I can honestly say the ones I able to consistently see at the trainings I lead/assist know that I am here for them. I believe thats important to both of us. I love that I am beginning to see players doing the little things I preach to them on their own, like ball handling drills on the side before practice, or running up to show me the new move they mastered that I previously taught them. Its great to see it now in a few players, just need more to start catching on!
