Had to go back to what we know works, this past weekend. It was a must-win game for the Jr. Elks U14, coached by me and Bryan Wilson. As Bryan and I were deciding the starting five and the girls warmed up, Deirdre (co-founder of SCL and head of the Elks Club) came up to us saying that we need to win this game to be second in the league. Not only second, but also to have home court for playoffs. Let me remind you that Bryan and I have been coaching the girls since September, so we knew what we had to do. It was time to set goals again, but this time we did it a little differently. We needed goals to be hit by half time. So here we go… Goals: 1) 10 rebounds 2) 10 steals 3) 10 assist 4) 5 fast breaks points and the most important one, number 6) 10 have funs, since it was 10 players on the team… It was the best plan Bryan and I could come up with. Half time score? Drum Roll Please…. 29-11 with 4 out of the 6 goals completed! As the game goes on we get closer and closer in meeting 100% of our goals. The final score was 43- 34 with all goals successful completed. 1) 10 rebounds? had 17. 2) 10 steals? had 15. 3) 10 Assist? got all of them. 4) 5 fast break points? had 8; and the most important one, number 6) 10 have funs? Well, we had overwhelming comments from them about having fun. Great Jobs Girls! It’s playoff time! Elks Nation.
