We had our first volleyball practice yesterday, and I'm starting to get enthusiastic. This will be the fifth year, and again I've got a 17 open team.
I've made the mistake of jumping in with too much excitement pretty much every year, but this time I'm being cautiously optimistic. First off, I've got Ed (Mini-Coach) assisting me, which makes a big difference because another paid of eyes and another mouth help immeasurably. I've got a couple of decent middles for the first time. I've got kids who are fast and can play defense. My setter is a little young, but talented.
We're going to try to run a swing offense this year, which will let us move our hitters all over the floor. That could really confuse the crap out of the other teams' defense.
Lots of promise, it should be interesting to see what happens.
