The Coaching Bug Is Quite Contagious...

For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while, you know that I caught the coaching bug and came down with it hard! It was pumping through my blood and into my heart at a rate I can't even describe. It always seems that once you have picked up that bug, you never lose comes and goes with the seasons.

For those of you that are newer to my blog I chose two of my favorite posts about it to share with you. The first is how I picked up the coaching bug. Yes, I wash my hands...that's now how you get it ;-) The second is how I felt after having the bug for a whole season.

Well, it seems that coaching bug has spread and this is where the good news comes in and I get to share my husband signed up to be the assistant coach of Bean's basketball team.

They had a record number of kids sign up for the clinic league and needed some volunteers to coach. One of my closest friends (shout out to @DvilleMelanie) got her husband to sign up as head coach and I coughed on Chris a few times and gave him the coaching bug as well. They teamed up and have been having a blast!

My husband with half of the team before their first game.
He is the one holding the basket ball and on his knees ;-)
Basketball clinic consists of boys and girls on the same team from the range of kindergarten to 2nd grade. They evaluate the kids before the teams are chosen and try to balance the skill level out. Then the teams in our town only play against each other. It is a way to prep them for when they move up to the county teams and begin to travel and play other towns.

Chris instructing from the sideline.
Our Bean (long blonde pony tail) is in perfect position.
It is not easy to coach this age range or the boy/girl team combo but our coaches have done a wonderful job so far. All of us parents on the sideline were routing and cheering like it was the Super Bowl. We had as much fun as the kids did playing! I have to say that one of my favorite parts was seeing the smiles that came across the coaches faces. I know what that feels like and I was so happy to see it in them.

The coaches led our team to a 9-9 tie for our first game. It was the perfect way to end it...not only because it isn't about winning or losing but we played a team that had two of our favorite boys on it. It just seemed fitting.

Both coaches with their team at the end of a phenomenal game!
These guys are over 6 ft tall. I love how they are always
down at the kids' level.
Way to go Gators!
So, if you should happen to pick up the coaching bug like I or my husband have...just enjoy the ride. This is one bug you won't want to shake and will most likely share with another.

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Share Your Awesome

I just read your other coaching posts too! You almost make me want to coach! I LOVE your passion! Your husband didn't stand a chance against that coaching bug. :) My husband actually coaches a community college tennis team.

I'm so glad you linked up!

I love to see a family involved in sports in a way that focues on enjoying the experience more than the competition. Those are great pictures, by the way!

What a great way for you and your husband to spend time with your kids. But it takes a lot of time, energy, and dedication! Good on you two for stepping up when you've been "bitten". :)

Haw Haw!!!! There is less than no chance of my catching that bug. However, I might spread the "librarian bug" to your house;)

I love looking in the window on your gorgeous family and all your adventures on the field.

I liked the power coaching couple! It's SO important that some parents step up to the plate and does this for the kids. Without good and wholesome activities to choose from, a lot of the less good options stand out!
