Last Saturday was our last game with my basketball team.  I am not sad, this was a hard group to coach.  3 out of 9 were all THERE..the 6 others were in their own little world.  I know they are still young but usually it's not THAT bad.  I do this for my kid.  At least he was in the 3 that were all there!

Great job with the training plan! I had every intention of getting down to business on monday- but between the horrible weather and some nasty aches and pains I postponed. Going to try for a short run today- I have another 1/2 on April 3 so I had better get a move on. When is your next 1/2? (bet if I backtracked a few posts I'd figure it out.)
That is one tiny team that you coach- what age group are they? I can have a helluva time keeping my 4-6 year old riders on task so I feel for you. :-)

I applaud you with the coaching of little ones, I helped coach a friends 6-7 year old flagfoot team, you are right, most of them are in their own little world.

I love the son's duck :).
A slew of 6-7 year olds is very draining...but so rewarding, huh? You guys all look so happy!!!

Laughing at Chris K! Love the new pic you have on your page with Dean!!!

NOT HAPPY with that result I tell you. NOT HAPPY at all.

Every March it is the same thing. Sweating a tough defeat and looking horrible going into the tourney. Can they just play well and then great going into the tourney for one year?
