The last game

leave a comment »

Tomorrow is the last game for my fifth- and sixth-grade coed basketball team. It’s both a high and a low. The high is seeing the on-court equivalent of a final exam, watching players do things they weren’t capable of only a few months, watching kids who barely knew each other two months ago addressing each other as teammates, equals, and friends. The low is, well, that it’s over.

To be played at the final game.

I hope as a coach I’ve taught them to appreciate, respect and cherish a sport I love. And that I’ve taught them how to be good and supportive teammates. I guess the final exam tomorrow should tell me whether I’ve been successful. All I know is, I’ll always have fond memories of coaching this group of kids.
