Today, I am grateful to be able to watch my daughter compete and have fun!
Trin has grown as an athlete and competitor throughout this year and finds joy on the court.
Although volleyball is not a sport that I have much knowledge about, still have no clue about rotations and movements, I enjoy watching Trin and her teammates improve and have fun.
This weekend I was able to watch some games before I had to go to work at Four Peaks. I wish I didn't have to go to work and miss the last three games because they kept winning after pool play ended.
I believe it is summer time now and I hope I can help find Trin opportunties to keep playing the sport she enjoys, obviously have a break and time to do other things.
As a coach and parent, I am not a fan of year round playing the same sport. Competing in other sports works other muscles and gives a much needed break from the other sports. Now the culture of year round participation is so strong that our young athletes are being told that they are falling behind because they are not playing 365 and I think that is a flawed short-term thinking philosophy and only prioritizes the more is better all the time. I hope I can convince Trin and her mom to take some time off and be for a little bit.
I am proud of you Trin!
