I absolutely love our Trinity coaching program! We had a new class full of kids this morning. Let me tell you, they ran into the gym with the most energy and excitement I have seen in a long time. After hours of group projects and lectures, it was so refreshing to spend some time with these Rugrats! The kids had already made Kelsey and me a stack of welcome cards. They wrote notes saying how excited they were to meet us and drew pictures introducing the whole class. Our community partner had mentioned that many of these kids had never touched a basketball before. I can't even remember the first time I touched a basketball, it almost seems like it was my favorite toy in my play-pin! Anyway, they did so well for beginners! In competitions they were cheering each other on and enjoying every moment they had in that gym! I can’t wait to see the improvement they make over the year.
I am also looking forward to seeing the improvement Kelsey and I make as coaches. I have been learning a lot of coaching techniques from our community partner who runs the program. He is so great with children and is a huge reason why they love coming. I find it very beneficial to learn from others and identify aspects of my coaching that I can enhance. I hope to take at least one new technique from each session and use it while I teach the following class. There’s always room for improvement!
