On being a coach...

Coaching volleyball has a lot of ups and downs, but this IM I got from one of my kids today is the reason I keep doing it...

"hey jeff... i wanted to say thanks for all your help... bc no joke after going to open gyms i realized i'm such a different player now... much better.... and something actually clicked and i'm hitting kinda good now... weird eh.... but seriously being on your team helped so much... thanks so much."

That's what it's all about.

Those comments are much better than any trophy. I wish more coaches realized that.

I agree. I am a high school baseball coach, and to hear one of your kids say that to you is what keeps you going. It makes you realize what you are really there for. I love what I do and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
