This fall I was asked to be an assistant high school field hockey coach.
"Gee MegAnne, I didn't know you worked with high school aged children?!"
No...I never had.
"Wow, you must have played field hockey before, I didn't know that!"
No...Never played field hockey.
A friend of my husband (now a friend of mine) reached out one Sunday evening - she asked if I would be interested in helping her coach a high school field hockey team. My first response was to laugh out loud and question her judgment in this matter. I never played field hockey, I never worked with teenagers, I was NOT this person.
Upon further questioning, I was told that she was looking for someone to help her motivate a large group of teenagers through some tough games. She was looking to build the program up from scratch and she needed someone who could help her reach the girls, all she was doing was yelling and it was being met with attitude and eye rolls. She needed to build a sustainable system that motivated compliance and growth...
My immediate answer was YES!
In the next few posts I would like to highlight some of the best/worst moments from that special adventure. I learned so much about myself during those couple of months. Best of which was to ALWAYS move towards opportunity for growth. Sometimes fate has a way of presenting you with something you didn't even know you'd be interested in- and sometimes it has a way of impacting you for the rest of your life.
