I'm a Lacrosse Coach!


Go Predators!  This Lacrosse team (a compilation of teenagers from four different high schools) is going to be a big part of my life for the next two months and I'm excited.  Lacrosse is such a fun sport and I'm already falling in love with this set of girls.  The sport is brand new to the Magic Valley; it's only their third season.  

On Saturday, we had our very first jamboree games in Eagle, Idaho... that began in a snowstorm, nonetheless!  We lost one and won one.  My voice felt sore by the end, but I hardly noticed.  It's been 15 years since I last played.  The details of the game are still a bit fuzzy but it's all coming back in a rush.  (In fact, we played on the same fields that I played my very last games on my senior year of high school and then bawled like a baby afterwards.  Whew.  I've come full circle.)  I admit, I might have had a clueless moment or two.  I just hope I didn't unknowingly embarrass myself!  I have so much to learn to become the kind of coach I'd like to be.  I see talent and potential in each and every player on the team.  I hope the girls can give me a benefit of a doubt as we go through the season together because lacrosse is a blast!  Cheers to many more road trips and games!  

The irony?  I said I'd never let my children do traveling sports.  I'm so eating my own words.  Worth it!
