The volleyball tournament was a complete success. Looking from a coaches perspective all of the corrections I put in place were obviously noticeable The girls were clear of what was expected of them and they all stepped up in a very amazing way… They handled the scorekeeping, down reffing (an assistant to the ref), and lines. They were awesome! Though I didn’t, I realized at one point that I could have even left the scorekeeping table and all would have worked. They played giving their best. They pressed up against the limits that each of them had. We won two out of the eight games we played. You should have seen us when we won. We Were Thrilled… In the next and our last two games we got stomped – – bad. It was sobering and at the same time it was like the exclamation point of what was missing in our overall performance as a team. To play against teams of the caliber we are going against is what we came for. Losing to them is the best place to learn what we need to be great. Yeah failure!
Now, about the title of this post. It may not make any since to you but, I have been waiting for something to say since last Sunday when we finished the tournament. I started probably 6 or 7 different versions of this post and just couldn’t say what there was to say. It seems that each time I started I wasn’t able to find the passion or enjoyment in what I was writing. But when I thought about waiting for something to say as a possible title to the post I suddenly realized that there is something that is kind of bubbling in the background that I want to say yet, I don’t know what it is. I know I may sound a bit crazy but really, it’s how it seems for me. Has that ever happened to you? They happen in those times when you are ready to start something new but you don’t know exactly what it is.
What I really love about my title and that bubbling up thing is that by thinking about writing about waiting for something to say I could finally post an update on the Volleyball Tournament.
The writers mind….. a great adventure.
