New Address

I am back at college for my Junior year. This year, I think I am the most nervous and excited I have ever been.

Importantly for you all, I have moved off-campus this year, and my old address is now obsolete.

Please send all packages and letters to my new address:
344 N. West St.
Hillsdale, MI 49242

Feel free to share this new address with anyone that might need it.

You know you are a coach when....

So Volleyball has been going on for about 2 1/2 weeks.... This is my first year coaching and I am pretty excited. We have enough girls to have 3 teams, which is kinda challenging on the coaching side as the range is from 4th year players to absolute beginners.

I am still learning what coaching is all about but I thought I would share a few things.

You know you are a coach when...
   ... your whistle is perpetually hanging around your neck
   ... you no longer wear knee pads to practice
   ... you seem to be always looking at a notebook (i.e. practice schedule)
   ... you have written out 3 different serve orders and you are still not sure you have it the way you want it
   ... played coach-on-2, except now you are the one spiking the balls
   ... you can officially add "Volleyball Coaches meeting" to your schedule... which actually means another trip to Starbucks ;)

Hope this made you smile :)
