Since the end of November I have spent every Tuesday night and Saturday afternoon with a great set of girls - The Sting. I was a coach with UPWARD basketball and we did great and ended with a record of 10-2 .... the best record in our division.
The last game ended with a last second shot, and we lost. Tears were shed but I was kind of happy to see that there is a passion for the game that most of them had never played. They are able to see the potential in themselves and the meaning of teamwork.
I also never knew that 4th-6th grade games/parents/referees could be so fierce!
