Peyton struggled at the 4th grade level, as did a lot of the 3rd graders. This was too much of a jump for them for sure. He was frustrated, but he continued to work hard on his dribbling and shooting. He definitely got stronger with his shooting and understanding more of the rules and fundamentals of the game.
I now know how hard it is to coach. I'm not sure I'll be a head coach again...I think I'd make a better assistant. It was a big time commitment. I also realized that I don't have the voice or dominant presence needed. But I love teaching kids what I'm passionate about. The last few games, seeing the kids using the skills I taught them was the best feeling ever.
