Hey everybody! Sorry for the late post, just got back in last week and still getting into the swing of things again… Coaching has just about doubled up this passed week since my college NUIG team was asked to help out a local school team of u16 girls basketball players with an important game this weekend. A few of us accepted and were happy to do it. 2 differences I’d like to acknowledge: 1.) Having multiple coaches help run a session is 100x easier and more effective. 5 of us showed up to help out and the kids absolutely loved it. Much better than what I’m used to [being solo]. 2.) no matter the skill level, everybody was so polite and eager to learn it amazed me. Every single player came up to each of us (coaches) individually and said thank you after each session. That really makes it worth it when the kids are excited and thankful for your help. Best of luck to them this weekend! Big college game for us on Monday afternoon against WIT. I still find it odd that college games are scheduled during the day in between lectures… Gotta love Ireland!
