Reflections of a Middle School Basketball Coach ; First Season

Well we had a eventful season our record was only 4 wins and 6 losses.  I still think it was a very good year because we established a new culture or awareness for the athletes.   If we would have kept the same outlook we would have won perhaps 3 more games but at what cost.  Now the student/athletes know if they do not take care of their off the court responsibilities they will not play.  I also think we planted some seeds for the outgoing 8th graders who would eventually learn this most valuable lesson . Hopefully it will speed up the process.  We have 6 players coming back it bodes well for the future.   With a spring and summer program we should hit the court running and studying next year.  Praise Yah !
