Getting the volleyball itch

I went to two of one of my kid's high school games, and I'm really starting to get the itch. It doesn't even matter that much what kids I'll have this time, because I've really had a lot of revelations about what the kids are capable of and what's important. Watching this particular kid is especially gratifying because she's night-and-day better than she was when I started with her.

I kind of wish that I was coaching high school, but maybe not. It's really a different world compared to J.O. ball, and not really for the better. The quality of kids is different, the parents are different, and in public schools, the administration doesn't care to support you or keep you there when teachers have contracts that could displace you (by someone less qualified, at that).

Yet another kid from previous years just sent me photos of her dorm at her freshman year of college. They grow up so fast!

Anyway, tryouts are only a couple of months out, then it's back to the grind!
